Tagging and Item Prep Tips

We welcome equipment and apparel for horses and ponies of all sizes shapes and disciplines. 

Tagging and Item Prepping Tips

  1. ALL items MUST be free from MOLD, MANURE, MUD, DIRT and URINE

  2. ALL items MUST be CLEAN and stain free

  3. All items consigned MUST be entered separately, and have a tag that is a unique to that item.

  4. All tags must be safety pinned on clothing, saddle pads and horse blankets.

  5. Pin tags to jackets and shirts on the LEFT Front shoulder.

  6. Pin pants on left front HIP.

  7. Use a small piece of clear packing tape to cover the safety pin that attaches your tag to your items. This will help keep you tags from falling off during the sale.

  8. All clothing MUST also be pinned onto a wire hanger.

  9. Zip tie together pairs of boots (horse or human).

  10. Zip tie tags onto boots and horse equipment.

  11. Please enter sizes on all items.

  12. Use Ziploc bags for groups of items such as polo wraps.

  13. Use Jumbo Ziploc bags for horse blankets.

  14. Tape with clear packing tape when appropriate.

  15. Do not tape over the barcode.

  16. Feel free to use a silver Sharpie pen to write your consignor # on the inside of your items. Especially on shoes and boots.
