Recommended Tack Stores/ Internet Stores
-For a terrific range of gear and equipment, I recommend a visit to
Mary's Tack and Feed in Del Mar... Their annual tent sale is
a blast and an experience not to miss. Save some money for this event!!
There are 3 locations in Southern California and they have internet
675 Via De La Valle, Del Mar - (858) 755-2015
31441 Avenida De La Vista, San Juan Capistrano - (949) 248-8415
- For Saddles, I am an avid CWD client. Helene Westbrook is the
local representative for this area, and provides free saddle fitting and
WONDERFUL customer service. Our barn is also sponsored by CWD!
-Locally we have Big Horse Feed , located off the 15 and
Temecula Valley Parkway. This store has an adequate range of sizes
for paddock boot, gloves, helmets, and half chaps.
33320 Temecula Pkwy
Temecula, CA 92592-9510
-Also located off of Temecula Parkway is Tack West . Tack
west offers a good selection of bits, English apparel, halters, and
English leather goods. The used tack section is at the back of the store
and worth looking at; make sure that you do your research before
purchasing a used saddle; sometimes the used prices are a bit high.
32848 Wolf Store Rd # A
Temecula, CA 92592-8277
- is my all time favorite online retailer, and is very
good to work with; I have had several very positive return interactions
and never a glitch or a hassle. I recommend them very highly, and am a
top 25 reviewer for their site. www.Smartpak.com
- is another very good retailer. Their shipping is a bit slow
and I am not as fond of the site layout, but they have a wide range of
gear and are well known. www.doversaddlery.com
-A third reputable online source is Stateline Tack . Be
cautious on the purchase of less costly leather goods... I far prefer the
SmartPak Plymouth Bridles... excellent quality at a VERY reasonable
- Another online retailer is I have
been very satisfied with their products and prices.
-Finally, for the rider that knows exactly what they are looking for, and
doesn't mind used, try Ebay. I have had excellent luck with it!
