Tack Stores Calgary

As a horse boarding facility, we visit a lot of tack stores in Calgary and we are constantly looking for great service, price and quality gear.  We also like a good sale.  You might be looking for women’s boots, ladies items,  or a quick sale.

We also have gathered a lot of information from our clients and vendors about their experiences and such with tack stores in our great city. So here is the list…contact us if you have any questions or want to add an item.

Most Important Tack

As your looking for a tack store here is a list of the most important tack that you will need.

4 – Hock Boots – check here

5 – Helmets – check here

1. The Tack Collector.

Ok, so first things first.

Most horse people that I know are always looking for a great deal, especially on the tack that doesn’t need to be brand new or in perfect condition.

The tack collector is well known as a consignment store. They have over 2500 square feet of tack goodness for all types of disciplines and riders.

You have to be willing to search through what they have to find what you’re looking for but chances are good you can get something you need at a really good price.  You will also find lots of ladies boots, leather, women’s accessories, general accessories, sale boots, reg boots, and other sale items.

The great thing is you can also get some money on tack that you no longer need, and use that money for something that you do need.

2.  Greenhawk

The only downside to the tack collector is what you see is what you get.   If you want something new or something that isn’t in stock you will need to go to a different store…one of those stores could be Greenhawk.

I think Greenhawk is the closest tack store to our ranch, at least in Calgary.

They have a pretty good selection of items and have all the major brands that you would probably be looking for.

It would appear from my perspective that they tend to aim their inventory at the English crowd and less at the western crowd.  So if you are in the hunt for some breeches, or some half shaps this is the place.  You will also find lots of ladies boots, leather, women’s accessories, general accessories, sale boots, reg boots, and other sale items.

I actually bought my half shaps there a few years ago and they have been great for riding.

3.  Irvine’s

If Greenhawk is the closest Irvine’s is the furthest, but if you are in north Calgary area or Airdrie this is a great place.  Especially if you are in the western discipline.  They have a great selection of saddles and tack for the western rider.

My sister is a barrel racer and has spent some considerable time and money in this store.  I think she actually worked there at one point too.

One thing also is that they have streetwear for the more country folk.  I’m a non-country folk, but for all of you out there that are into that kinda thing, you can get your stuff there.  Skinny jeans prolly not tho.

Even though our facility is located in Okotoks this post is about tack stores in Calgary.  We visit a lot of tack and supply stores in Okotoks too…but that will be in a different post.

4.  Spruce Meadows

So as with lots of people that compete in the English world spruce meadows is a standard when it comes to jumping.  You know that thing you do when you ride a horse over a jump.

Many of our people at BHR ride at spruce and compete there.  They have an onsite shop, but be prepared to pay a little extra for things.  Their prices are definitely the highest in the city.

They also have an online version of their store, but it is un-secure so be careful giving them your personal information, you’re probably better off on Amazon anyway based on price, customer service and security.

5. The Horse Store

Also known as not the guitar store.  Just kidding.  But in naming their store these guys kept it really simple and easy to remember.  I remember their quality being pretty good though.

I haven’t been there in a while but I always found their stuff pretty good.  The selection was good and I enjoyed the store.  Especially because I used to live on the west side of the city so it was easy to get to.

You can let me know what their stuff is like now.  Give them a quick view online as well.

Well, that wraps up our tack stores in Calgary for now.  We will continue to update this list as we get more info.
