Special to The PREVIEW

Whoa, pardner — don’t let the Pagosa Springs Tack Sale pass you by.

There’s still time to reserve space to sell tack at the event, which will be Saturday, May 5, at the Archuleta County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The tack sale is sponsored by San Juan Back Country Horsemen.

A large collection of used tack and gear has been donated for sale to raise funds for the Wilderness Trails Forever Campaign to clear backcountry trails clogged by beetle-killed trees on the Pagosa Ranger District. All proceeds from the sale of the donated tack collection will go to this on-the-ground effort.

The Wilderness Trails Forever Campaign, operating under the auspices of the Pagosa Area Trails Council, is raising funds to hire crews this summer to clear trails in coordination with the U.S. Forest Service.

Members of the public also are invited to purchase space to sell tack and stock-related gear at this event.

Proceeds from the sales of selling spaces and concessions at the tack sale will support the annual trail work of San Juan Back Country Horsemen and help defray costs of the event.
