MILLBROOK — Tucked away at 18 Washington St., is Argento Equestrian, Hudson Valley Premier Tack Shop. It’s been there for just over a year, but many riders have yet to discover it. Owner Brooke Swass hopes more will find it soon.

Swass is knowledgeable, pleasant and easy to talk to. There’s also Tucker, 4, an Akita-Austrian Kelpie mix, who is equally as friendly though furrier. He loves greeting customers and is extremely gentle. The dog accompanies Swass to the shop every day.
