I stopped by the store on Thursday, December 8, to check out the inventory. The store sells everything from:

  • saddles for all western events
  • ropes
  • roping supplies
  • rodeo equipment
  • clothing
  • gloves
  • expert saddle fitting by the region's only qualified, saddle fitter
  • vitamin and mineral support for horses
  • ... and a whole lot more

When Will They Close?

I spoke with the clerk on duty, and he mentioned the plan was to remain open until December 23, 2022. When asked why they were closing, he replied, "It's time."

Is This Goodbye?

Not necessarily. While their retail space is closing, they will continue to offer a number of services. The Horse In Sport's official Facebook page reads, "

After 19 years, The Horse In Sport is closing the store location. We will still have the Mobile unit at area Roping and Barrel Races. Tiger will continue saddle fittings by appointment.
