Equestrian Supply Places – Chapala and Guadalajara
Pastureria Las Redes, Chapala
Pastureria Las Redes Sr. Juan de la Torre, proprietor
A feed store in Chapala, just off Pepe Guizar (the road out of town towards the rancho), on the north side of Zaragoza - in the opposite direction from the corner of Pepe Guizar which has the new Pharmacia Guadalajara on it. Zaragoza is one-way at that point so you can't turn on to it from Pepe Guizar to get to this feed store. You can either park at the Pharmacia Guadalajara and walk a couple of blocks west to get to it, or swing around the streets to be able to proceed back east on Zaragoza.
They have some tack and supplies as well as feed – halters, girths, big salt blocks, oats, wheat, grain ("grano"), and groomng/medicinal basics.

Horse supply store in Tlaquepaque.English spoken here. A big favorite for many Lakesde equestrians.
Their store does not stock everything listed in their on-line catalog.
Supposedly they will deliver from on-line orders BUT we have never been able to get them to deliver to Lakeside.
In 2017, Dra. Lupita Cevalos opened a feedstore on the Libramiento going from Chapala to the Walmart in San Antonio Tlayacapan. It is on the lake side of the hghway, roughly halfway. Sandwiched between a hardware store and a taco joint.
