Just when you thought horses were a thing of the past and “semi-rural” was a term confined for use in real estate brochures, Dover Saddlery Retail, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Dover Saddlery, announced Wednesday that it will be opening its second California location in Moraga in the Fall.
In a release issued by the company, Dover said: “The store, located in Moraga, in northern California, will serve the very active equestrian community in the East Bay and Greater San Francisco area.”
It appears the saddlery will be going into the former Tuesday Morning space at the Rheem Center between TJ Maxx and Nations Hamburgers. So you can pick up a new bridle and a burger on your visit there.
Also from the company’s release: “Equestrians shopping the Moraga location will be treated to a sparkling new store brimming with tack, riding apparel and horse care items, as well outstanding customer service for which Dover Saddlery is renowned. During the Grand Opening weekend customers will be able to meet representatives from leading manufacturers and meet Dover Saddlery retail store staff, all of whom are riders or horse owners themselves. During the Grand Opening weekend, customers can also enjoy Grand Opening Specials throughout the store, and enter to win a $500 Dover Saddlery Shopping Spree!”
Sounds fun. It has been a long time since we’ve been in a good saddlery. Stay tuned.
