From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 15, the annual tack swap, or equine garage sale, will be held at the Northampton County 4-H Center, 777 Bushkill Center Road, Nazareth. The public is invited to attend to help celebrate 30 years of serving the public and having fun.
This is a rain-or-shine event, being held inside nonheated buildings and outside.
There will be new and used items for sale for all horse interests and disciplines. There will also be horse crafts, Breyer model horses, clothing and other horse-related items.

Limited food, courtesy of Backtrackers 4-H Horse & Pony Club, will be available during the sale hours.
The 4-H program is open to youths between the ages of 8-19 years. It offers more than 150 hands-on projects, a wide variety of experiences and builds life skills for the future. Volunteer leaders are always welcome.
