The Tack Collector
Consignment for Horse & Rider
Since 2006 The Tack Collector has maintained an inventory of 100% horse related consignment items providing a perfect shopping solution for horse enthusiasts. Shoppers can look forward to an extensive selection of competitively priced tack, equipment and clothing as well as our tag discount system. No need to wait for special sale days! Consignors can be comfortable knowing that we provide the expertise to manage and sell items in our well organized 2500+ sq feet of space.
Tag Discounts = Sales Every Day
Based on how long an item has been in on consignment is relative to the amount of the discount. Discounts Range from 25% – 80% off making bargains to be had for treasure hunters in our Clearance Area. All Clearance Area items are Final Sale.
New for 2018!! We are upgrading our tag discounts to be 4 times a year!
Monthly Reward Point SPECIALS: We are introducing Reward Points for every purchase! New for 2018! Every $20 earns 1 point. 50 points = $10 off your next purchase or let your empire build 🙂
Pricing is determined by several factors; the consignor, brand, age, condition and comparable new market prices in the local community. The brand is an integral factor as price ranges between brands of similar items is so diverse. For example; Antares is priced higher than HDR, a Rambo blanket is more than a Shedrow, Animo is more than Horka, Ariat more than Dublin, etc.
Every item is thoroughly checked with particular attention to the condition & defects before becoming available for sale. Saddles are extensively safety checked prior to being consigned as well as prior to leaving on and upon return of each trial.
