Our History

Wise Choice Tack was opened in 1994 as the “retirement” option for Dave and Mary Ann Baseheart. After moving to Lexington and diving into the equine community, Dave and Mary Anne saw a need for a great local tack store to provide products for all levels of riders. Our first store, located off of Harrodsburg Rd in an old house, became a staple for riders young and old to visit and shop at. As the business grew, the need for a new location became apparent and the shop moved to our current location in 2006. The shop, located on Georgetown Rd, is in a great location, as it is close to the Kentucky Horse Park, major equine hospitals, and is easily accessible from the interstate.

The store was named after Mary Anne’s first horse, a chestnut Saddlebred gelding named Wise Choice. Thanks to Mary Anne’s love for this one horse, Wise Choice has become Lexington’s Preferred Tack Store for over 20 years. Being a family business, we have always operated under the philosophy that good service, good products, and good prices bring good business and loyal customers. We truly appreciate all who have made our store successful, from day one until today. We hope to continue to serve you for many years to come!
