Spring Tack Sale is April 11

Think Spring! The annual CSDEA tack sale is April 11, but it's not too soon to start getting together items you want to sell, or making a list of things you want to buy.

WHEN: Saturday, April 11th 11:00-2:00

WHERE: Eisenhower Community Center, 1001 Hwy 7, Hopkins MN

WHAT: All horse related items accepted, as long as they are clean and in good repair.

Lots of stuff to sell? Contact Heather (phone 612-360-0848) and she will mail you tags ahead of time. Small amounts of tags are availablfe at St. Croix Saddlery and Stone Ridge Equestrian. On April 4, from 1:00 to 4:00 you can also drop off your tagged items beforehand at these stores. You can also consign your items at the Eisenhower Community Center the day before the sale, from 1:00 to 4:00, or the day of the sale from 7:30 to 10:00. If you have a seller number already from last year's sale, please let Heather know and you can keep it for this year's sale. (Then you won't have to re-tag your items).

Volunteers are needed! Contact Lindsay Maros (phone 612-718-0394).

Tip: If you are looking to buy, make a list of the sizes you and your horse wear so you don't have to guess when you are rummaging through things at the sale. Nothing like going home with a great buy, then finding out it doesn't fit! For example: Mr. Wonderful wears a 26" dressage girth, a cob bridle, 4.5" bit, and a 72" sheet.
