SweetPepper Horse Sports is an equestrian tack store located in the Wilmington, NC area since October, 2012. SweetPepper Horse Sports is owned and operated by a mother and daughter whose passion for horses and love of retail has inspired the opening of this store.
Diane Skiba (mother) grew up riding through the tobacco fields of Red Oak, NC, where she was raised. She carried her love of riding with her when she moved to Wilmington, NC in 1976, and later shared her passion for horses with her daughter, Kristin.
Although Diane rode for enjoyment and therapy, Kristin began riding competitively at the age of seven.She and her first horse/ faithful companion, Buckwheat, competed in many shows throughout North Carolina.
Today, both Kristin and Diane continue to ride for pleasure and fun.Diane's horse, Pepper (a retired police horse), and Kristin's horse, Sweetie (a retired show horse) inspired the name of the store.
The store carries all the necessities to suit a horse, and keep them healthy and clean, as well as gear for the rider! There are also several gifts and accessories for all horse-lovers.
Stop by and say hello to Diane and Kristin!
