Farm House Tack carries products from well-known equestrian brands including Nunn Finer, Ariat, Bates Saddles, Charles Owen Helmets, Ovation, and FITS. They offer riding apparel for both men and women, new and used saddles, grooming supplies, equestrian gifts, and much more.
“We are very thankful for the support of Farm House Tack,” said USEA CEO Rob Burk. “This family-owned business is a wonderful company that offers a wide variety of products for eventers. I urge everyone to check out their booth during the 2019 AEC!”
