Big Horse Feed & Mercantile – A Temecula Treasure Since 1988

by Cheryl Erpelding

This year Big Horse Feed & Mercantile owner, Rose Corona, was pleasantly surprised to see that her beloved Temecula store was listed at number three of “day tripping attractions to see in Temecula” in the AAA Travel Guide! Established in 1998, Big Horse Feed & Mercantile is one of Temecula’s oldest and most popular businesses that attracts more than just horse people to shop and explore her vast 8,000 sq. ft. “Superstore,” that’s packed with wildly impressive and unique items of every variety in all departments throughout the store, including gorgeous, equestrian-themed housewares and home décor; kitchenware; English and Western clothing and sportswear for men, women and children; English and Western boots and fashion shoes for all ages; throw pillows, blankets and bedding in every color, style and texture; stunning jewelry for every occasion; a huge collection of wall art displayed throughout the store; a large variety of canine and other pet-related products including, quality pet food and supplements; all varieties of livestock-related feed and supplies; premium tack; and so much more!!

Holiday shoppers can easily complete their shopping list all under one roof as there is something for everyone at Big Horse Feed & Mercantile. Shoppers of all ages and disciplines will find a wide variety of top-quality English and Western tack and apparel, featuring many top- notch brands that horse enthusiasts will undoubtedly include on their “Holiday Wish List.” This year, Big Horse will once again be hosting their popular and highly anticipated “Ladies Night” on Tuesday Dec. 6, from 5-7pm where food and refreshments will be served and extra-special discounts will be offered on “must have” merchandise throughout the store. This annual event is always a crowd-pleaser! Note: Rose encourages holiday shoppers to start their shopping NOW, especially if you’re looking for popular clothing sizes or one-of-a-kind gift items.

And, back by popular demand, is “The Big Horse Wish List” which is our own unique and popular holiday ‘gift registry’ – Each Wish List is a personalized service for participating customers to create an ongoing list of their “favorite things!” This allows friends, family, or even co-workers to come on in, check the lists and confidently purchase the “perfect gift” in the size, color and style of your choice. What could be easier? This popular service makes shopping for friends and family super simple and convenient. Just stop by the store and ask one of our friendly and knowledgeable staff members to show you “The Big Horse Wish List,” choose a gift to purchase and we will wrap it for you FREE of charge!

Equestrian trainers and their students especially love the Wish List that makes holiday shopping easy, confident and stress-free. “We have a lot of customers or their children who take lessons from trainers and would like to give them a gift, but have no idea what they want or need. A trainer’s Wish List solves that problem for both the student and trainer. It’s a win-win for everyone!”

Shawna Stratton shares her thoughts about Big Horse Feed: “My daughter Katie and I love it. What’s great about them is they are more than just a feed store. They are also a boutique with extensive clothing lines and many different things. But mainly is that their customer service is the best in Temecula. They will help you find what you are looking for or they will order it for you. It really sets them apart from the others. We have been shopping there for years and they make you feel like you are family and not just another customer.”

Margaret Rich, owner of Green Acres states: “Number one reason of why we love Big Horse is, that they have been around quite a long time and we use them for all of our needs. Most importantly we send our lesson kids to get outfitted by Big Horse because they have the right stuff. We are very happy to support them.”

The knowledgeable and attentive staff at Big Horse is more than happy to answer questions and assist with all your holiday shopping needs! Christmas at Big Horse is always fun and easy!!
