Based in Calgary, Canada, Spruce Meadows is the brainchild of the Southern family who built a Show Jumping complex at the foothills of the Alberta Rocky Mountains. It was in 1976 that the first Spruce Tournaments were held, with annual spectator attendances reaching over 50,000 by the end of the decade. Today, Spruce Meadows boasts one of the greatest outdoor equestrian venues in the world and offers an incredible experience for riders and fans alike. Spruce Meadows focuses on the organization and hosting of show jumping tournaments of unmatched quality for junior, amateur and professional athletes in a manner that reflects basic family values in a clean, green and welcoming environment that celebrates the horse and encourages the breeding and training of quality sport horses and the teaching and development of athletes.

This horse jumping venue is world class. It’s amazing. Can’t go wrong enjoying whatever event is going on. Fabulous. I’m not a horse freak but I can appreciate most things. This was easy to relax and like. Awesome time.

Endless vendors and entertainment. Indoor and outdoor exhibitors. Food vendors, reindeer, fire pits to warm you up. Dancers on stage to entertain. Mini train rides.

Had a great time, ample parking, shuttles to far away parking lots, classy facilities! The restaurant on site for the horse events are a bit high in price, but the dog event had a simple cart selling hot dogs and hamburgers if you got hungry.
