Carousel Tack Shoppe has been around as long as most Birmingham folks can remember. Rita and her family have lived in Indian Springs Village, Alabama, for the past twenty-five years and have been involved in many equine activities including Cahaba Pony Club, BDCTA, and Special Equestrians, our local therapeutic riding organization. The "founding mother" of Special Equestrians, Rita has been very involved in the program since its inception.
Carousel Tack Shoppe is located in Indian Springs Village just a few blocks from where Jack and Rita live and keep their beautiful equines. Many mornings you can see Rita riding in her dressage arena just off Highway 119. If she's not riding her horse you might catch a glimpse of her riding her bike on the back streets near Oak Mountain State Park. Jack himself is often seen on the riding lawn mower keeping the place looking "snappy.". Rita and Jack have three married children and seven "very loved" grandchildren.
