I know nothing about these, but found a list Los Angeles Tack shops | Tack shops in Los Angeles, CA - YP.com

Maybe someone knows something about some on this list or has others to post

The biggest one I am familiar with is in Baldwin Park.

-Broken Horn Saddlery

When I lived in Southern California, this store was three floors of "stuff" and you might not see everything in one day. I don't know how big it is now.

Back then, their parking lot was way too small for the size store they had and it wasn't uncommon to drive around waiting for a spot or park somewhere else and walk

At that time they did cater to the western rider but I remember seeing plenty of English tack as well.

I left SoCal in 2003; I'm sure there are other tack stores, I don't know about; hopefully someone will come in and post.

I will say the prices at the Broken Horn store were very reasonable. The closer one gets to downtown LA the more expensive things get

Enjoy your visit!

It's a bit of a drive from LA, but Norco is billed as a "horse city" & is laced w/trails all through the town & has LOTS of tack stores. If you go- "Thrifty Horse" has a large English section-they have both new & used items. Some are consignments & offers can be made.

Yes, it's a bit of a drive up the 91, or the Highway From H**l as I like to refer to it.

If you don't get claustrophobic in never-ending bumper-to-bumper traffic, yes, you really do need to visit Norco and not for just an hour. That town is well worth spending dawn-to-dusk there.

There's a bar/restaurant that has a hitching post especially for the horseback riding crowd

RFD-TV's "America By Horseback" did one of their segments in and around Norco.

Well worth the driving angst to get there from LA

The bar/restaurant is the Saddle Sore, & now has a pen in the front-it's on 6th street-the main drag. Other places also have pens & hitching racks outside their businesses. We used to slip off the bridles & take them in with us,& watch while the horses stood tied in the pens-as there were usually other horses also. Sometimes stalliions, etc, & their is a camel that is led around a lot & that scares a lot of horses.
