When asked what inspired her to begin her journey in running her own business, Tina proudly answers, “I wanted to start something of my own so I could show my son, who is ten years old, that if you put your mind to something, you can do it.” What prompted the idea of having it be a mobile bar business was a dive bar known as Kix over in Sea Isle which had a car trailer where people could buy frozen drinks. “That’s so cute!” Tina thought. Upon applying for an LLC and deciding what to name her business, she purchased a dilapidated horse trailer. The “rusted and busted” state of the trailer, as well as having a horse trailer, inspired the name “Busted Saddle.” After some renovation work with the help of her husband and friends, Bustled Saddle was successfully launched in May 2022.
Busted Saddle offers services for all kinds of events. Tina enjoys them all because of how unique the atmosphere is for each party, as well as the many friends she makes along the way.
