    Default Tack shops in NY

    Hi all,
    I'm going to New York City this August and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for a good tack shop?

    Looking for anything in particular to buy, more to browse.

    Thanks!

    There's one tack store in Manhattan — Manhattan Saddlery. Unless you're really into full-priced Pikeur and Joules, it's not worth the walk from the subway.

    Hmm, that doesn't sound too promising!

    Don't worry, there are tons of things to do in the City in the summer! Unfortunately, horses aren't one of them — all the barns and tack shops are an hour away on the Island or
    Upstate.

    ^you hit the nail on the head -

    Tired overpriced product that has sat on the shelf for ages (really). Virtually nonexistent return policy.

    On the positive side the guy who works there is very nice.

    BEVAL'S is in NJ, under an hour from NYC. Horseman's Corner is in Eastchester, lower Westchester County, and I am sure there are others.

    Both good places — but god forbid you hit summertime going-to-the-Jersey-Shore traffic on the GWB!

    There's a new place near the train station in Bronxville, the name of which I forget — anyone been there?

    Twisted Bit is owned by the people who used to own Horseman's Corner. Apparently the prices are much better than they were at Horseman's Corner. If you are going to go to NJ go to Dover...Beval's prices have gotten better but still are not great. There is also a Beval's in North Salem, and the Horse Connection is in Bedford. Haven't heard of the place in Bronxville...you might be thinking of Horseman's Corner since its about five minutes away from the train station.

    Oooops, I meant Scarsdale -- so I must have been thinking of the Twisted Bit.

    You're right about products being on the shelves for ages, years actually! You can still find lots of stuff with Copperfield's price tags on them and they changed their name years ago.

    Dig deep enough and maybe you will find Miller Harness stuff too

    Hm maybe they will have those jean/chaps combination pants from Miller that I desperately wanted when I was 14.

    Anyone remember that awesome sauce?

    I’m pretty sure Horseman’s Corner is closing at the end of July, so if you are here in August you might be out of luck there.

    I also recommend the Twisted Bit – here is the link to the store if you want to check it out http://www.thetwistedbit.com/. Danny and Annie are wonderful to work with. Scarsdale isn't too far from the city - maybe a 30 minute drive - and the store is about a five minute drive from the Hartsdale train station if you wanted to take the train and then take a cab. And if you’re looking for something fun to buy a friend of mine just got a really gorgeous pair of custom half-chaps I’m drooling over. I am very tempted to copy the pattern choices from hers and get a pair myself…

    Have a fun trip!

    This is not true. It was purchased by Twin Lakes Farm and will not be closing.

    To my knowledge that deal fell through and they started their liquidation sale last Friday. The information is on their Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/pages/Horsem...r/288748247616

    Not too long ago I found a pair of breeches on the basement sale rack with a Miller's tag on them; they had to be at least 10 years old...

    If youa re going to head towards Dover go to Horseman's Outlet. In the same area and a lot cheaper.
    I do remember when New York had Miller's and Kaufman's and New Jersey had Eiser's....am I dating myself....heehee! and the Prix Des Nations was $125 dollars new!

    That would be about right, I started back riding after a long absence in 2002 and it was still Miller's then, I think it was sold and became Copperfields about a year or two later?
