Mary's Tack and Feed was started in 1963 in Del Mar, California by Mary Hammond. At just over 600 square feet, many days the saddles would have to be moved outside just so the customers had room to shop inside the store. From these sleepy beginnings, our current owner Mike purchased Mary’s in 1976. He built a large wooden pole building and Mary’s moved across the street to its present day location on the corner of Via De La Valle and El Camino Real. Now almost 12,000 square feet, Mary’s has the space to be able to stock just about everything to meet your equestrian and pet needs.
Right Next Door
The area around Mary's Tack & Feed has grown up as well. Del Mar Horse Park right next door hosts shows throughout the year, and just down the street Del Mar Fairgrounds features horse shows stretching from March through November.
What We Offer
The 40 employees of Mary’s Tack & Feed serve riders and pet owners every day in Southern California. Plus, with an internet site (www.marystack.com) and toll free phone (800-551-6279), Mary’s sells to customers throughout the United States. Mary’s has English and Western saddles, tack, grooming supplies, supplements, and horse gear to satisfy the discerning horse owner. You’ll find a great selection of the latest and most popular riding apparel, from paddock boots, tall boots, and cowboy boots, to breeches, popular sportswear, trendy fashion jackets, western wear and riding jeans. Equestrian themed gifts, decor, books, Breyer horses, and toys for all ages make Mary’s a popular shopping destination. In fact, when Oprah Magazine needed to do a horse related photo shoot for an article, the first call they made was to Mary’s Tack & Feed. For your personalized needs, Mary’s offers custom tall boot measuring, custom engraving and tack trunks. And of course, Mary's also has a complete feed, bedding and hay department and delivers daily to local ranches and barns.

Mary's goal is to provide top quality products, great service, and knowledgeable sales associates. Our team of buyers works directly with manufacturers in the United States and around the world and Mary’s Sales Associates continuously train with vendor representatives to keep up with the “latest and greatest.” Most of our employees are enthusiastic riders themselves, and if not telling horse stories, we’re probably talking about our dogs or cats. The Mary’s enthusiasm is contagious, and our goal is for customers to leave with a smile. We hope to do the same with your online order. If you are interested in joining the Mary’s Team, please visit our Careers page and fill out an online application there.
Please don’t be fooled by cheap imitations. Enthusiasm for quality equine products is not the same as over-priced merchandise. You’ll see that our pricing is very competitive, and on most products we also offer a Price Match Guarantee. If you’re looking for a $29 cheaply-made imported bridle, we won’t sell it. Cheap bridles break at the most inopportune times. Looking for a good quality bridle that will last? Mary’s is YOUR tack store! Quality horse and pet supplies, competitive pricing, and friendly, knowledgeable service make Mary’s a bargain, every time.
A Good Member of the Community
What’s next? Mary’s strives to be a good member of our local equestrian community – helping to sponsor local equestrian and pet events of any size. Pony Clubs, disabled riding programs, horse shows big and small, and community pet events will almost always have something donated by Mary’s to support the program. If you have a Southern California riding organization or show, however, and would like more information about possible support from Mary's Tack & Feed, please download and fill out this sponsorship form and mail it to: Sponsorships, Mary's Tack & Feed, 3675 Via De La Valle, Del Mar, CA 92014. Or contact email@example.com. Please contact Mary's AT LEAST 2 weeks prior to your event to be considered.

What our customers are saying...
Everyone was extremely nice and knowledgeable. Great quality with a ride range of horse attire and products for all disciplines. My cousin who is 13 years old and rides horses up in Northern California has been helped by Chelsea both times we visited. Chelsea is very patient and friendly, and definitely recommend seeing her if you need any assistance. She even was able to recommend some additional horse camps for the summer for my cousin to attend! Thank you so much! We are very satisfied and happy with all the assistance given! We will definitely be back! Chandra R, CA
Mary's always provides excellent customer service, whether in the store or on-line. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. I recently moved out of San Diego county, but when I go back to visit I always go to the Del Mar store. When I order on-line, the service is still great and the delivery was within 2 days. Mary's is my favorite place to shop, for my horses, for gifts, and for myself! Vickie
I would just like to thank you all again for the outstanding service I received from your company. Without the sharp eyes of one of your employees noticing something odd with my credit card, I could have been charged for an endless amount of things via Nigeria !!! The attention given to me and the placing of a new order was most appreciated. I thank you all again. Deb D
Greetings from a very satisfied customer. I love my new bridle and told my trainer about it. So you may have another new customer. Thank you for the service and carrying quality equestrian tack at great prices! Marci D.
I have to say, I live in another state, but visit San Diego at least once or twice a year and I ALWAYS make it a point to stop by Mary's Tack & Feed while I am in town. I love the store! No matter how many tack stores I have been to in the southwestern U.S. and northwestern U.S. - Mary's is still one of my favorites! Mathilde J, KY
