Here at Chimacum Tack, we live our lives and run our business on simple foundations: We care about people and animals. We treat others the way we would want to be treated.
In response to the devastating fires and hurricanes of the past few months, Janie and Maren are beginning a “Pay it Forward” chain: We’re inviting our customers and friends to help those affected to get back on their feet by helping replace lost tack. Think of it like the coffee line stories you’ve heard of… the person in front of you buys coffee for the next person in line. Only this time, our large community of horse folks are going to chip in to help replace tack and horse equipment.
If you’ve lost your barn to fire or flood, and you need to replace your equipment, simply send us a note and tell us what you most need. We will send what we can in the short term. We’ll cover administrative costs, and even shipping. We won’t be able to replace everything for everyone, but we’ll do it on a first-come, first-served basis and make it as fair as possible.
Like the Christmas-time Adopt-a-family, if you’d like to be one of our “Adopt-a-Barn” recipients, just send us a note with your request and a picture or two. If you’d like to be a contributor, this is the place! Choose your level, add to cart, and check out. Contributions will be used at our cost, to make every dollar stretch as far as possible. And, as a thank you for your generosity, you’ll earn points on transaction, just like any other purchase.
We aren’t a non-profit, anymore than your favorite local coffee chain is, but we’ll be careful and as transparent as possible in getting the gifts to the people who need them most. At cost.

We can’t do everything, but if we each do what we can, we can accomplish a lot.
~Maren, Janie, and the entire family here at Chimacum Tack
