as Snappy designated me. As of about April of this year, I will be in business for myself. I'm signing a lease on Feb. 26 for a building in which to house my new tack shop. With three fairly good size foxhunting clubs very near me, several pony clubs, plus numerous hunter/jumper show barns, it seemed prudent for me to get my a** in gear and open a tack shop to give these people some place to spend their money. The building is 1.5 miles from home and on the bus route so my kids can be dropped off in front after school.

Do I look nervous?

Courage is not the absence of fear....it's acting in spite of fear.

If there is no other local place, you will do fine. If there is, remember that good service brings people back to you, bad service drives them to your competition.

Best of luck!

Finding it was a big push for me to make the decision to do it. I may be scarce for a few months while I get things going. After that, I'll be posting from a laptop perched on the handlebars of my bike, which will itself be perched on a trainer in the corner of the shop. :D

what I will carry is 50 miles from here. They're overpriced and won't give you the time of day unless they know you own a $100,000 horse. Many people I talk to loathe giving her business, but have to if they want to see what they're buying.

This is Gawani Pony Boy. I've been to a couple of his clinics. Not only is he a brilliant horseman, he's hot. Did I mention he's hot?

Crap, for some reason, I can't attach a photo. You'll have to go to his website to see His Hotness.

Way to go Spin on taking the plunge. Don't worry, things will work out just fine. But I have to ask, what the heck is a tack store??

Sells Horse Tack which equals gear, Saddles, brushes, combs, bridles, bits, reigns, etc.

Aha!! Thanks for educating me. Good thing you responded quickly to my post, I probably would have been up all night thinking about this one.
Cheers, Wayne
