Founded in 1901, Riley & McCormick was providing Calgary Alberta district residents with the finest of harness, saddles and Western wear before the province of Alberta was incorporated in 1905. Riley & McCormick has been present at every Calgary Stampede since 1912. Not just interested in supplying equipment for the animals at "The Greatest Show on Earth", Eneas McCormick was one of those concerned enough to be a founder of the Cowboy Protective Association for the financial benefit of injured rodeo competitors.
History has passed by the doors of Riley & McCormick stores - pioneer missionary Father Lacombe for supplies for his orphanage; military saddles ordered for the Russian Cavalry in W.W.I; Edward, Prince of Wales, to equip his huge EP ranch; decades of entries in the Calgary Stampede Parade, a presentation cowboy outfit for Prince Charles - all part of Western Canadian pioneering and pride in Canada.
The grandchildren of Eneas McCormick still continue to provide traditional expertise and high quality goods and services. Riley & McCormick is a part of Calgary, part of the Canadian West - Calgary´s Original Western Store since 1901.
