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.
The area around Mary's Tack & Feed has grown up as well. Del Mar Show 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.
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 blingy jeans. Equestrian themed gifts, decor, books, Breyer horses, and toys for all ages, makes Mary’s a popular shopping destination. In fact, when Oprah Magazine recently 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 might be interested in joining the Mary’s Team, please fill out an online application.
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 makes Mary’s a bargain, every time.
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.
You are our main priority. We like to take care of business and have fun doing it. Let us earn your business, and please tell us if we need to improve. Your comments are very important. Thanks for shopping at Mary’s Tack & Feed.

What our customers are saying...
Mary's always provides excellent customer service, whether in the store or on-line. The staff is knowlegable and helpful. I recently moved out 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!
I would like to thank Mary's Tack for their excellence in customer service. They always go above and beyond. They posted an ad for me on the store front when most places would have just thrown it in the trash. I always love shopping there and will continue to do so in the future.

Thank you for helping me find everything I needed while I was showing at the Sun & Surf show! Will definitely come back when I'm showing in Del Mar!

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!
