Give tack, get tack, make a difference

Until June 30, you can bring new or used tack and riding gear, as well as home goods, to Coach Stop Saddlery, 2400 Lamington Road, Bedminster, for a tax-deductible donation to Riding with HEART’s fall tack sale.

Riding with HEART (Hunterdon Equine-Assisted Recreation and Therapy) is dedicated to improving the quality of life for physically and cognitively challenged adults and children and their families, while providing opportunities for youth development through its diverse equine-assisted programs.

The tack sale will be held Sept. 24 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. at 639 Route 513, Pittstown.

Why not get a ticket to Omaha for the World Cup finals?

Individual tickets are now on sale at www.Omahaworldcup2017.com  for the global indoor championship in dressage and show jumping at Omaha’s CenturyLink Center March 29-April 2.

Such big names as McLain Ward of the U.S., defending champ Steve Guerdat of Switzerland and Daniel Deusser of Germany in show jumping, along with U.S. rider Laura Graves, Carl Hester of Britain and Isabell Werth of Germany in dressage are expected to be on hand.

In addition to the competition, there will be many other activities and exhibitions, as well as vendors selling everything from tack to jewelry and crafts.

Omaha is a nice town (the state’s tourism motto is “Visit Nebraska, Visit Nice”). Be sure to dine and shop at the Old Market near the arena. The finals won’t return to the U.S. until 2020, so take advantage of next year’s opportunity. There’s even a direct flight from Newark airport.
