If you love horses, consider opening a business that caters to the equestrian and equine markets by opening your own tack store.
You could sell both English and Western furnishings, and perhaps even provide dressage equipment. Your shop might carry everything from saddles and bridles to leather cowboy books and English riding helmets.
If you don’t want to sell tack, you might instead consider opening a country themed gift shop. Perhaps you could have a Western Cowboy Accessory department where you can sell country themed clothing and furnishings for the home. For fun, you might even sell lucky horse shoes.
If opening your own store isn’t your desire, perhaps you want to reach the equestrian and country markets by selling wholesale stable equipment. Every horse and pony needs a place to call home, and from ranch barns to show stables, every equine facility has furnishing needs. You could sell patterns for building barns, and common stable furniture such as mounting blocks and water troughs.
No matter what type of horse-related business you decide to open, you should have a passion for horses and be knowledgeable about horse supplies. It is also beneficial to have a good background in management or business, in order to run the shop efficiently.
Owning your own business can be an extremely rewarding and exciting opportunity if you are responsible and are willing to do the work. And if you love horses, you can be proud that you are providing a valuable service to horse lovers everywhere.
