The Tack Collector

Consignment for Horse & Rider

Since 2006 The Tack Collector has maintained an inventory of 100% horse related consignment items providing a perfect shopping solution for horse enthusiasts.  Shoppers can look forward to an extensive selection of competitively priced tack, equipment, and clothing as well as our tag discount system; discounts are taken off the labeled price at checkout. No need to wait for special sale days! Consignors can be comfortable knowing that we provide the expertise to manage and sell items in our well organized 2500+ sq feet of space.


August 11th

Our shop availability is currently Tuesday-Saturday 11-5 for walk in Shopping and we can provide curbside pick up if preferred as well 🙂  Covid protocols are being followed throughout our shop with signage, hand sanitizer at each door, regular disinfecting of common areas and as per the City of Calgary’s August 1st By-law masks are required.

Most Items are sold either as a Final Sale (items not taken out on Trial or are very discounted are considered a Final Sale) or if you would like to verify first that they are appropriate they can be taken out on our 7 day trial (items outside of Canada are Final Sale Only) with a pre-authorized Credit Card or Cash (No Debit or e-transfer) for the full amount of the item(s) plus GST .

We also offer shipping and as we are 100% consignment we do not offer flat rate shipping and prefer to ship with Canada Post but other shipping providors are available at your request. The size of the packaging is reduced as much as we can as the cost of shipping is based on the size and weight of the item(s). The total cost of shipping and insurance (highly recommended to cover potential shipping damage as the item is under your full care and responsibility while in transit but it is not mandatory) are your responsibility to cover in both directions if anything needs to be returned from trial.  For items shipped within Canada our 7 day trial is available and it starts the day the item(s) arrives and is available for pick up at the Post Office, not the day it is picked up. For item(s) that  need to be returned to us, we must receive the tracking number before the close of the Trial Due Date (7th) day.   The shipping and insurance estimate is adjusted once it has been processed at the post office and is most often less than the online quote through the Canada Post website. 

Please provide us with either item SKU #’s and a brief description or a Product inquiry from the website to confirm availability and a postal code if you would like a shipping estimate 🙂 

 If you have any questions, decide to have anything shipped or use the curbside pick up please call us at 403-719-2154.  If you reach our voicemail (as we are not always able to answer the phone) please leave us a detailed message with your phone number and a good time to call you back at as soon as we are available 🙂 to discuss Trial or Final Sale terms and to provide your address and credit card information (we do not recommend sending over email/facebook/text). Thank you :

We are also now accepting CLEAN items in fair condition by advance appointment Tuesday – Saturday 1-4, bookings can be made through our appointment scheduler in the “Consigning” Tab.

Pricing is determined by several factors; the consignor, brand, age, condition and comparable new market prices in the local community.  The brand is an integral factor as price ranges between brands of similar items is very diverse.  For example; Antares  is priced higher than HDR, a Rambo blanket is more than a Shedrow, Animo is more than Horka, Ariat more than Dublin,  etc.

Every item is thoroughly checked with particular attention to the condition & defects before becoming available for sale. We do our very best to thoroughly detail all conditions and verify sizing but do not guarantee or warranty conditions or sizing.  Saddles are extensively safety checked prior to being consigned as well as prior to leaving on and upon return of each trial.

 Try before you buy – 7 Day Trials 

There are so many variables with how items fit that we often joke that it is like buying jeans at Costco, they do not necessarily fit the way they are stamped by the manufacturer!  We recommend using our 7 Day Trial to determine fit and suitability, item(s) are to be tried on for size only, not actual use. Exception: Saddles – can be ridden in but we have a very detailed Saddle Trial Agreement that must be completed before saddle(s) leave the shop.

The 7 Day Trial is available for most items; excluding Clearance Area Items which are final sale, with a pre-authorized Visa, MasterCard, Amex or Cash (not Debit) for the full amount of the item(s) on trial.  Payment by Debit for Trials – Maximum $500, 10% handling fee applies for items returned paid for on Debit.

Shipping is available; purchaser is responsible for shipping and insurance costs for both directions. We prefer to ship with Canada Post, other shippers are available at your request.

All Items are considered sold upon close of the trial date. We do not contact you to confirm, but work on the basis that if you keep it you like it! Extensions are available with notice prior to the end of the seven days. For items that are being shipped back, the tracking number must be received by us prior to the trial return date.   

All sales are final and all items are sold As-Is with no warranty.  All items are Sold on behalf of Consignors and we encourage all Non-clearance & Final Sale items to be taken on trial before purchasing to verify sizing and suitability. All items that are NOT taken out on Trial are Final Sale and Sold AS-IS with NO Warranty.  We do our very best to thoroughly detail all conditions and verify sizing but do not guarantee or warranty conditions or sizing.  No Returns on Saddles, Books/DVD’s, Motorized & Clearance items. Thank you for supporting our consignors and purchasing at The Tack Collector Ltd.

Payment Methods
