Great news for English riders as Dover Saddlery is opening their first northern California store in Rheem Valley Shopping Center in Moraga this Friday.

Tuesday Morning used to be at this location, I took a look inside and it’s gigantic. They also carry horse-themed clothes so even if you’re not looking for a new English saddle, this is a must see!
