Brassy Bit Tack got it’s start when we looked around our tack room, and after years of changing disciplines, horses, and accommodating different riders, joked we had accumulated enough stuff to start a tack store! It was also born from frustration. We went through a lot of trial and error, gaining knowledge on our own and by accident, that well fitting tack means the world of difference. We “traded up” many times to find the perfect piece, all the while finding affordable and fitting tack was a challenge.
When the laughter surrounding our tack hoarding quieted down, we agreed we wanted to share what we’d learned with other equestrians: knowledge on how to get the right fit, the freedom to try some different, and the flexibility to keep upgrading on quality. Brassy Bit Tack was born!
7 ish Years Later…and counting!
What started out as a joke among sisters has become a dream come true. 2 garages and 2 locations later, Brassy Bit Tack now finds itself in rural Glyndon, MN. There was a time when having 20 saddles in stock was a huge feat! Now, we average over 100 in our inventory! 7 years later, we have sent thousands of saddles across all 50 states, over 35 countries, and supported countless riders in our local area. There are not words to share our gratitude to our clients for making this dream possible.
As Brassy Bit Tack grows, so does our commitment to our mission. We are committed to our education and understanding of saddle fit, horse and rider biomechanics, saddle building and repair, while never losing focus on our shared passion….our equine partners! With that growth, we will be expanding our resources and capabilities to offer our clients support without bias.
