  • Decathlon opening in the USA!

    I just read that the first Decathlon store opened in San Francisco and they seem to have a limited selection online for the US now too.

    This place has been my go to for all riding equipment in France so I wanted to share the word with you stateside. We have more options/products in France but hopefully the product line will extend if it catches on.

    Great quality at a great price. I think they market more for their more traditional sports but I've been happy with every product I've bought there (boots, half chaps, helmet, gloves, crop, and magic riding tights).

    Has anyone checked out the store in San Francisco yet?
    How do you make a small fortune in the horse industry?

    Start with a large one.

    Yes - when I went they didn’t have much horse stuff. But the Emeryville store opened recently and I think it’s bigger. Gotta go!

      Good prices, not always long lasting but reasonable quality for both horse and rider.

        I went to one in Belgium a few weeks ago and was impressed to find an Equestrian section. If I were ever going to try riding while on a work trip I'd probably just run there to pick up a helmet and equipment as it was reasonably priced and then store it at the office for the next trip.

          Yep they’ve been open for a while now. I haven’t been to the store but did order some stuff last year. For the price point I was pleased with everything I got.

          I don’t know if they’ve expanded yet but last I checked they were only shipping within California.

            Awesome, I haven't heard of it but will have to check it out!
