Every town has incomparable small businesses that give rise to its unique character. Without these “mom and pop” places, the town loses its sense of individuality. One of Odessa’s inherent businesses is Miller’s Tack and Saddlery in Downtown Odessa.

Miller’s Tack and Saddlery is chapter 2 in a 20 year legacy of Millers. In 1987, Ben Miller, who retired from the Odessa Police department after 36 years of service, opened Ben’s Pawn Shop of the corner of 5th and Grant. Odessa had been his home since he married his wife Joy, and he loved his family, neighbors and friends. Every day between 3:00 and 4:00pm, you could find Ben walking around 5th and Grant reminiscing with old and new friends alike. Downtown Odessa was his home and his heart, and that is why you will still see the Ben’s Pawn Shop sign hanging on 5th and Grant because that was “Ben’s Corner”.

Miller’s Tack and Saddlery is a combination of 2 family legacies: David and Terri Miller, Ben and Joy’s son and daughter in law. Terri grew up in southeastern Oklahoma in a family that raised race horses. Terri was on horses before she could walk and has a passion for them. David and Terri knew that the Permian Basin was in need of a tack and saddle shop where customers can get top of the line, handmade saddles and bits.

Miller’s carries American made custom bits with a lifetime warranty. They also have SRS saddles that are handmade in Texas as well as 5 Star pad line that are also perfected in Texas and made to order! Miller’s has a vast selection of high quality saddles, bits, blankets, Back on Track products and Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses. It doesn’t stop there. They also have Montana West handbags, wallets and carry conceal purses as well as stunning Montana Silversmith jewelry.

Miller’s Tack and Saddlery is a one stop shop for all of your equine needs. You will not be disappointed with the selection or the incredible knowledge and stellar customer service.
