Expo Tack Sale

Our tack sale is held annually at Minnesota's Horse Expo in St. Paul at the state fairgrounds. The sale is managed by Minnesota Youth Horse Association and is this group's major fund raising event.


The public is invited to consign items. All items are tagged using special tags provided to the consignors. If you have several items, you may get tags from Curt Baumgart prior to the sale and establish your own price or pick up tags when you bring your items.

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 2013 tack and clothing consignment sale was successful as always! Thanks to the more than 300 consignors who participated! There were over 12,000 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 next year. If you would like to help with this event fill out the volunteer form or email Briana Visser, tack sale volunteer coordinator at You need to save the form to your computer and send it as an attachment to Briana or print it and send it via regular 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, Winter Roundup and all the other 4-H Horse events.
