Ropes and Tack was started by Amanda and Gary when Daniel Green came to South Australia for a clinic they then ventured into sourcing ropes for themselves with plans to sell just a few.
Gary was born in Maitland, SA from a rodeo family he grew up around horses and rodeo's. Amanda didn't get her first horse Nutmeg until 18 year old. This is when the rodeo bug hit her hard and she fell in love with it at a rodeo in Wilmington when she attended with friends.
Now, based just outside of Eden Valley in the beautiful Barossa Valley South Australia the two of them have 9 horses and are always striving to find the best equipment for them.
As a result, they started sourcing some Cactus Ropes from the USA. When their friends and family began to ask them to get some extras to share, they realised that there was a need in the market for quality products, that were locally available.
A few boxes quickly turned into a full storeroom of products, this was the birth of Ropes & Tack.
