Where We Are

The Tack Trunk is conveniently located on premises here at EPI, 11009 Spenceville Road, in Penn Valley, California. We offer a personalized shopping experience and will help you choose the right sizes and items for your needs. We can even bring items to your location, by arrangement. Ask your instructor or text 530-559-1692 (Erin) or 530-263-1878 (Lisa) to schedule your personal sales service appointment.

Drop-ins are welcome! On the rare occasions when both Erin and Lisa are teaching lessons at the same time, there may be a little wait before we are able to help you. We encourage you to text ahead if you are crunched for time, although you are always welcome to watch the lesson while you wait.

Find Us on Etsy

You can order our handmade rope products at our Etsy store, EquinePartnersInc. We offer halters, reins, lead ropes, and accessories for horses. For dogs, we offer leashes and tag clips.

What We Sell

All of our merchandise is from quality brands that we use ourselves. In decades of owning, training, and caring for horses, we know how important it is to have the right equipment for everyone’s safety and comfort.

We carry horsekeeping essentials such as fly masks, bell boots, grooming supplies, hay huts, and blankets.

For riders, we have breeches, helmets, paddock boots, and other apparel in youth and adult sizes. We also have fun accessories such as helmet covers, jewelry, and socks.

We feature gift items for horse lovers and the people who love them (so you can shop for friends and family when you’re here). Think sugar scrubs, skin care, socks, and games and puzzles.

And of course, new and used tack!

For dogs, check out our selection of collars, leashes, and harnesses. We also carry dog coats and sweaters.
