Published 3:54 pm Wednesday, October 26, 2022
We are Justin Mclane, Katie Mclane, and Chelsea Johnson, co-owners of Wayward Springs Tack and Consignment. We are dedicated to providing horse equipment and accessories to equestrians in both Western and English disciplines; offering you the opportunity to buy and sell your used tack, also providing brand new tack options for you as well at an affordable rate. We love what you do for your horses, and we want to help you get a good product without breaking the bank! We are very excited to be joining the downtown Elizabethton Community!
1. What made you choose Carter County and Elizabethton for your services and business?
We are all transplants to the Carter County area from Florida, and we all just fell in love with the area, the community, and the history of Downtown Elizabethton. This was such a central location in the Tri-Cities area and we thought it would be a perfect location to set up shop!
2. What is your purpose as a business? What do you do?
We are a dedicated horse tack and consignment store. Our goal is to provide horse equipment and accessories to equestrians in both Western and English disciplines. Something we are very excited about offering is the consignment portion of our shop where customers can bring in used tack for us to clean and sell for them!
3. How long have you been in business?
We have just opened our doors on Thursday, September 22, 2022. Our shop is young and still growing and we are constantly adding new products to our shelves.
4. How long have you, personally, been working in the industry?
Combined, we have over 21 years of experience with horses!
5. Are you part of a franchise or are you independent?
Wayward Springs is a locally owned independent tack store. Unlike chain supply stores we offer a wide variety of affordable products and a personable staff who is here to help you find what you need. If we don’t have what you are looking for we will find it and order it!
6. What impact do you think your services/business will have on the Carter County community?
Being the only dedicated tack store in the Tri-Cities area, we hope to offer a place for equestrians all around us to find tack, replacement parts for tack, treats, first aid, supplements, etc!
