It’s early spring here in Western NY and we’re all dreaming of warm sunny days, the kind that are perfect for riding and all the other horse related activities we’d like to be doing. In reality, we’re experiencing a very chilly, winter-like April, filled with snow and ice. I don’t think anyone will argue when I say that April snow and ice do not equate to happy horse owners! And, while I know that none of us are happy about the weather this spring, the one thing it tends to do is send us flocking to all the local tack swaps in the tri-state area. Why? Because we can’t ride and it’s a great opportunity to pick up a few items we think we might need. Tack swaps are like an equestrian bargain shoppers dream! You’ll find saddles, bridles, blankets, bits, halters, splint boots, pads, arts and crafts, hot chocolate and coffee, and so much more! Tack swaps offer countless equine related treasures just waiting to be discovered!
But really, if we’re being honest, the best thing tack swaps offer is the opportunity to mingle with members of our local horse community. It’s a great way to find out what’s going on in our local communities. We can learn almost all the things we need to know in order to schedule our summer with just one visit to a local tack swap. I mean, who doesn’t want to know things like who’s hosting what show, what trails might be disrupted by logging in the coming riding season, what clinics are going to be offered, who’s having a barn open house, who has extra hay or who might need some, who has spring foals on the ground, what’s new in the industry and who’s tried it and what did they think? The list of possible conversations and information is endless! You all know that we horse people never run out of horse related topics to talk about and tack swaps are tailor made for chatting it up!
You can be assured that Hay Horder LLC is on the same page. There are things we’d like to know about the upcoming riding season and we’d also like to share information about The Hay Hoarder slow feed system! In the spirit of all the great things that spring tack swaps have to offer, we’d like to give a little incentive for you to brave the chilly weather and make a trip out to one of your local tack swaps!
