While visiting family near Charleston, SC over Thanksgiving weekend, I took my granddaughter and her two girls to five tack shop and stables in the area. They loved trying on Western boots and checking out other equine gifts. Only the 7 year old was able to find the size and style she liked for boots, but the teen is returning to one of the shops to select her boots! I gave the little one her Christmas gift early - the riding helmet!
Find these equine businesses on Facebook to learn more about their location, hours etc!
Black Bottom Stable & Tack Shop (Summerville area) - two huge floors of all types of riding supplies and clothes! Including some used clothing and boots. Also a boarding/training stable.
The Recycle Cowboy (Summerville area) had a wonderful selection of used clothes and gifts! I even found a lovely tapestry vest to wear at Christmas! The little one "gasped" when she saw the room full of square dancing clothes!
Medicine Wind Stable (Summerville area) had closed their tack shop but I found out we could have the girls ride there with an appointment! So next visit from Florida, we'll try to set that up. Beautiful stable! Couldn't find them on Facebook, but they have a website: http://medicinewind.net/
Tack 'N Tow (Charleston area) had helmets for a great price! New and used clothes etc, and saddles, too.
Meeting Street Tack Shop (Charleston area) had tons of gifts for horse lovers of all ages! Also, the usual tack supplies. My family bought me this lovely wallet for my December birthday! Love it!
