Welcome To Judy's Tack Shop
Judy’s Tack Shop was first opened in Germantown, Tennessee in 1985 by Judy Orbesen. During her years growing up in Barrington, Illinois, she showed very extensively on the “A” circuit in equestrian competitions. In the early 1970s, after recognizing a growing need for competitive riders and equipment, she started a small mobile unit that traveled with the competition circuit. In the mobile unit, Judy would measure riders for custom shirts and jackets and their horses for custom blankets and various other tack supplies.
After pursuing this career for nearly 10 years, Judy moved her operations to a more permanent location in New Orleans, Louisiana. This allowed her to start keeping more standard items in stock as well as keeping up with her custom equestrian equipment side of the business. Throughout the years, a mobile unit has followed the equestrian circuit making Judy’s Tack Shop a well recognized and highly respected vendor of quality goods amongst riders.
In 1989 a second location was opened by Judy in Franklin, Tennessee which is where our team and mobile units are today. Reluctantly, in 2014, we decided to close the doors on our Germantown location to focus on our Franklin location and mobile units to better serve our clients.
