Chicago Equestrian Welcomes Ann K. Hubbard Tack Shop to the Growing List of Clients

Lake Bluff Store and Mobile Unit to Provide Quality Products and Exceptional Service

Lake Bluff, IL – November 11, 2013 – Chicago Equestrian welcomes new client, Ann K. Hubbard’s Tack Shop, the most time-honored and traditional equestrian retailer based in the Chicago area. Currently located in Lake Bluff, IL, the store began in the 1970’s in Lake Forest, out of Ann K. Hubbard’s basement.  Hubbard welcomed people to her home to provide personal attention to her customers and often delivered products to the local barns along with her never-ending smile.  Hubbard was a member of the Mill Creek Hunt, the Fox Valley Hunt and Traders Point Hunt. She enjoyed fox hunting and was also a prominent figure in the show jumping circles in the Midwest.
In 1993, Catherine (Nips) and Clare Holahan purchased the successful tack shop and continue to run the store in Lake Bluff, along with a mobile unit. The Holahan’s have a background of excellent horsemanship and knowledge from some of the top equestrians in the business. The twin sisters now share their knowledge in the products they carry in their store. The Holahan’s hands on experience with horses is what makes the store successful, consistently providing and recommending the best products for their customers’ needs.
Ann K. Hubbard’s Tack Shop carries top of the line clothing, leather goods, and horse care products. From custom riding boots and horse clothing to custom bridles and tack room drapes, both the store and the mobile unit are stocked with all the name brands you can list including their own line of bridles. The tack store maintains a customer list filled with top, loyal, professionals from around the country and provides horse care products for some of the top horses in the country.

 Ann K. Hubbard's exclusive line of bridles is high quality and affordable.

The Holahan’s also support the horse industry by sponsoring numerous events and donating products for championship awards including the Zone 5 Horsemanship Class, the Chicago Hunter Derby, the USHJA North Region Child/Adult Jumper Championships, the Chicago George H. Morris clinics and more.
The mobile unit will be in Wellington, FL at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center from November 18th through the end of March for the Holiday Horse Show Series and the Winter Equestrian Festival.  Visit them in Florida or at the store for your 2014 horse show products.
