Owner description: 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.

If you like horses, you'll love the shows here. Equal to any venue in the world in this regard.

Admission to the grounds is free, and often rush seating to the jumping events is available and inexpensive. The grounds are beautiful and full of green space and playgrounds for kids. During jumping events there are other displays available, and at Christmas they host a huge craft sale which is decorated and a lot of fun to attend.
