Local Paint Horse Club To Host Annual Tack Swap

Monday, March 5th, 2012 at 10:11 am

The Minnesota North Star Paint Horse Club announces the date, time, and location of its 3rd annual tack swap.

The Minnesota North Star Paint Horse Club will be holding its third annual tack swap on Sunday, March 18th at the Hinckley Community Center in Hinckley, Minnesota. The community center is at 102 Dunn Avenue North. The sale hours for the tack swap will be from 11am to 2pm. Those wishing to consign clean horse items can bring those items to the community center between 8am and 10:30am. Unsold items and checks can be picked up from the community center between 2:30pm and 4pm that same day. Vendor tables and food concessions will also be available.

Tack swaps are a convenient way for horse owners to sell unused or unwanted equine related items by pooling together potential buyers in one location. A small consignment rate, usually 10-15%, is charged to the sellers only on the sold items. These fees are a fundraiser for the hosting organization. Potential buyers use tack swaps as a means to stretch the funds used in their equine activities by searching for the many good deals found at tack swaps.
