The ranch is at 2869 Esaw St. in Minden.

“Kids & Horses has been around since 1999, and I meet people every day who have lived in this community their whole lives and do not know about us,” said executive director Alexis Roman Hill.

“This is a great opportunity for the community to see the life-changing work that is being done right in their own backyard,” she added.

The tacksale will feature:

– Eight western saddles in good condition

– Australian saddle in excellent condition (large seat)

– Wintec all-purpose saddle, great condition

– Several heavy-duty winter blankets, all sizes

– Several summer fly sheets

– Many western saddle pads, all types

– Various English saddle pads

– Miscellaneous tack items, lead ropes, halters, bits and boots

The Kids & Horses annual western barbecue, silent and live auctions and Kids & Horses’ version of America’s Got Talent, “Kids Helping Kids,” Sierra Star Search, will be held at 5 p.m. Sept. 11, at the Crystal Bay Club. Doors open at 4 p.m. The annual event provides scholarships for students in need and expands programs to the dozens of children on the Kids & Horses waiting list.
