Located in the heart of the Bluegrass at Keeneland's Thoroughbred Training Center, Central Kentucky Tack and Leather enjoys immediate customer feedback on its leather tack and equine products. The trainers and riders of tomorrow's champions are a demanding customer base and the proximity of the track and stables offers a unique proving ground for new products.

CKTL was founded by equine veterinarian H. Steve Conboy. The tack shop specializes in the manufacture and repair of quality leather products and offers a full line of horse care and stable products as well, as english, western, racing  and dressage tack, riding accessories, and equine gifts.


Leather products are made from premium select steer hides that are hand cut by our leather craftsmen and constructed in our shop using the best grade of solid brass hardware available. Our English bridle leather is hand rubbed to produce an elegant finish.
