Expo Tack Sale
The tack sale is held annually at Minnesota's Horse Expo in St. Paul at the state fairgrounds. The sale is staffed by Minnesota 4-H Horse project members and volunteers and is this group's major fund raising event.
- April 24-26, 2015
The public is invited to consign items. Consignors establish and price their items, using special tags provided, when items are brought to the sale. If you have 30 or more items, you may get tags from Curt Baumgart prior to the sale.
A 20 percent commission fee is charged on all items sold at the tack sale, 5 percent of that is used to pay Minnesota Horse Expo for rental space. The remainder of the commission supports Minnesota 4-H Horse Project activities and events. Please consider checking out your tack at home and bring it to the sale or visit the sale and find the tack you need.
The 2014 tack and clothing consignment sale was successful as always! Thanks to the more than 300 consignors who participated! There were over 10,000 items sold.
This sale is growing every year, and we need more volunteers to help. We have fun working the sale; think about joining us. If you would like to help with this event fill out the volunteer form (PDF) (posted 1/15/15) and email it to Dayle Shimek, tack sale volunteer coordinator at email@example.com or print and mail to the address listed on the form.
The proceeds from this sale go to the Minnesota 4-H Horse project to help pay for the State 4-H Horse Show.
