Manhattan Saddlery will offer special promotions for all in attendance.

Manhattan Saddlery traces its history back to 1912, when it opened on 24th Street as Miller Harness Company, a saddlery and equine supply business. Current owner Nick Tsang remains deeply committed to upholding and exceeding the standards of excellence set by Miller's, renovating the space and tuning the store's inventory to reflect the needs and sensibilities of modern equestrian shoppers.
The renaissance of Manhattan Saddlery’s historic building and equestrian business has included a strong marketing outreach to the foxhunting audience in the metro NYC area as well as nationally through Covertside Magazine. This special event on January 28th allows Manhattan Saddlery to showcase all of the foxhunting equipment and attire they have to offer to a captive audience of foxhunters in NYC. Tally Ho!!
