Welcome to Calgary Saddlery, thank you for taking to time to let us introduce ourselves.
Lets start with a little background on Calgary Saddlery...
We began operating in May 2018 with our mobile unit travelling to horse shows across BC & Alberta. We spent a fabulous summer soaking up all the shows and bringing great products directly to our clientele. In the works during this time was our storefront location which opened later that year in November.
We now operate out of a cute little building in the Bearspaw, Calgary area and share our building with some Remax offices. Our mobile trailer continues to travel to horse shows across BC & Alberta.
Are you hosting a clinic, show or event you might like the trailer to be set up at? Please contact us and let us know what you've planning, we would love to join whenever possible.
What do we do...
We are proud to offer Calgary, the surrounding area and the whole world actually (via shipping) an avenue to shop for a wide range of quality English riding tack and apparel, along with higher end consignment pieces. The consignment is a unique side to our business and one we just adore. It's exciting to receive your previously loved tack & apparel and help it find new homes. Restricting the consignment pieces we accept to just higher end, allows us to get top dollar for your items and move them quickly. We live in an increasingly mobile world and we're proud to feature your consignment pieces for online re-sale so they can be enjoyed by a global audience.
Moving toward the new inventory we carry; we focus on stocking brands that we feel provide exceptional quality for price, along with providing products that aren't readily available elsewhere. We stock our shelves with the mentality that our pieces are an investment to last a life time. We seek out the best fabrics and work with brands that stand behind the quality of their products.
Who's behind the brand...
That's me, I'm Sophie! Originally from Vancouver Island, I moved out to Calgary, Alberta in 2013 as a recent graduate of UVic with a business degree. I have been riding for as long as I can remember, starting my show career in the Arabian breed circuit and sleeping in goose neck of the horse trailer to make the showing affordable. After we relocated for high school I found myself at a hunter/jumper barn and fell in love with the adrenaline of jumping. Spending time with the horses, flat work and dressage movements remain a very important part of my riding, thanks to my foundation in the sport. I still manage to ride a few horses a week and am fortunate to have a variety of horses to ride, while not currently owning my own.
Calgary Saddlery is now my full time passion and love child, with the help of my fabulous business partner, and a few wonderful gals that allow me to have a few days off every week and keep two locations operational through the summer.
Welcome to Calgary Saddlery & thank you so much for supporting our local tack shop!
