Mary’s NEW Horse Show Booth

The word is out! If you haven’t noticed yet, we have been bringing Mary’s straight to the horse shows at the Del Mar Horse Park. Although our store is a short walk from the Horse Park, now you can grab just the necessities if you find out something was left at the barn (YIKES!) or to get a nice gift for the little ones who won their first blue ribbon.

To every show, we usually bring a few of our favorite show staples: cool shirts, sun hats, helmet visors, saddle pads, horse cookies, doggy poop bags (it happens!), and several samples of our show apparel and tack, along with show essentials (spurs, gloves, hairnets, earplugs, etc.) and new products.

We also try to tag a vendor along with us, so any questions regarding certain products can be answered straight from the source. Even if you don’t need something, our

FREE Horse Health Seminar, July 23rd 4pm-6pm

Mary’s will be hosting a FREE Horse Health Seminar on Wednesday, July 23rd from 4pm to 6pm.

For today’s sport horse, health is one of the most important factors when he is expected to perform at his prime. As a top athlete, it is up to his caretakers to provide him with the attention to detail and knowledge that will prevent and recognize any injuries or illness the horse may (or probably will) encounter.

 We welcome three highly trained guest speakers that will discuss and share their experience and training with us. Dr. Philippe Benoit, former French Olympic Team Vet and one of the top international horse show veterinarians in the world, will be approaching the topic of solving sore back issues in sport horses.

 Dr. Mark Silverman, of Sporthorse Veterinary Services, is a 3 day Team Vet Consultant and will be discussing Laser Therapy in equine practice. Laser therapy is a scientifically proven procedure and provides pain relief, a reduction in inflammation and accelerated healing.

 Dr. Richard Markell is an FEI International Veterinarian since 1990 and consultant to members of the American, Canadian, Argentine, Japanese, French and Mexican Olympic Teams as a private treating veterinarian. With many years of experience treating horses at international shows, he will be sharing his new thinking for old problems and how sports medicine has changed.

 This is a free seminar you don’t want to miss, whether you have just started riding or have trained top of line sport horses for years. We encourage all ages to attend. Please do RSVP to reserve your spot! 858-755-2015.

Grand Prix Hunt Coat Fitting Night March 19

Since Grand Prix hunt coats have so many variations, Mary’s is hosting a “Wine and Cheese, Hunt Coats Please” VIP evening March 19 from 6-8pm. Krista, from Grand Prix, is flying in from the East coast, and will provide expert fitting assistance, plus swatches and examples of custom piping and collars.

“We have a good stock of tech fabric Grand Prix hunt coats,” said Mary’s English Apparel buyer Robin Wicker. “But many times our customers want that extra customization such as a different base color of coat (like hunter green, brown, French blue or grey) with contrasting microsuede collars and piping. This event will enable them to order exactly what they want to have their own individual look in the show ring.”

Several styles, including the Riley, Quinn and Tech Lite, will be available to try on and customize. AND, for every GP custom hunt coat purchased, the customer will receive a Mary’s Gift Card equivalent to 15% of the purchase price. The gift card can be used on other items within Mary’s.

“Wine and Cheese and Hunt Coats Please “ is free, but you must RSVP. The event is March 19, Wednesday evening from 6-8pm. Mary’s Sales associates will also be in attendance to answer any questions you may have about not only hunt coats, but anything else within Mary’s that interests you.

RSVP to 858-755-2015.

Pure Vita Grain Free Dry Dog foods offer single source protein of turkey, bison or chicken mixed with sweet potatoes, peas, blueberries and other nutritious ingredients. While all dogs LOVE this line, it is especially good to try for those dogs with allergies or other conditions that require the protein in their diet be of only one type. Pure Vita also has digestive enzymes. Three flavors of canned foods are also available at Mary’s.

Note:  We have five lb bags listed online but larger bags are available at Mary’s Del Mar.
