VERNON, N.Y. — On Sunday, February 18th from Noon until 2:30pm members of the Oneida County 4-H Horse Program will be holding a consignment tack sale at the Vernon Downs Hotel on Stuhlman Road in Vernon. The 4-H youth of Oneida County have organized and promoted this event for 24 years now. The consignment tack sale is a lesson in entrepreneurship. The youth promote the event, send information to consigners, vendors and potential customers, assist with setup and cleanup, inventory items, and calculate proper payment to those consigning items. There is always a wide selection of new and used tack, equipment and riding apparel. The funds collected from the 4-H Tack Sale are used for other educational opportunities for the 4-H youth such as trips, workshops, fairground improvements and educational resources for 4-H members.
Consignment sheets will be available pre-sale by registering at https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/TackSale2018_230 . If you would like more information on the 4-H consignment tack sale or the Oneida County 4-H program, please contact Lisa Farney at 315-736-3394, Ext. 122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
