Vancouver Island’s Newest Tack Store
Located in picturesque Ladysmith, 23 kimometres south of Nanaimo, BC, the newest tack store on Vancouver Island is in the heart of Vancouver Island’s horse country. April’s Tack Boutique is a dream come true for owner April Johnson.
“I have always been passionate about horses and tack,” explains Johnson. “I have extensive industry knowledge and experience, and want to create an incredible retail experience.”
April’s Tack Boutique offers a wide selection of tack, apparel, boots, gifts and much more, promising personalized service catering to the sophisticated equestrian who appreciates quality, beauty, and tried and tested products.
Recognizing that not all riders are the same size, Johnson carries sizes ranging from extra-small to double extra-large, with attention to detail that ensures comfort and fit for every rider.
The shop carries an excellent selection of gifts for horses and horse lovers, and local riders stop in often to check out the latest consignment saddles.
Popular brands available at the shop include BR, Uvex, One K, Passier, Pikeur, Eskadron, C4, RJ Classics, Noble Outfitters, PhyllisStein, Rockfish Wellies, 2KGrey, Chrome Horse Boutique, and well as local art and jewelry. And if they don’t already have what you’re looking for, Johnson will do her best to get it for you.
