Overview

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.

Inexpensive and a great way to spend the day with the family! Even if you don't know anything about horses or jumping, the owners go that extra mile. A must see when you are in Calgary. Tickets are often free for general admission!

Went to Spruce Meadows for their annual Christmas craft sales. While very crowded and busy it was fun to get out to see the stunning grounds.

Spruce Meadows is a world class equine facility. You will see the best of the best. Large crowds at events, but reasonable entry fees and well-organized to handle the volume.

Each has excellent caliber of International horses. Masters is the most busy - and harder to get hotels. one is during the Calgary Stampede so that is busy. The Nations Cup is my favorite
