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.

They have a huge selection of products and the layout is great. Can get very busy so is difficult to navigate especially if you are taking a family and have a stroller. Love the free shuttle from the c train station.

If you get a chance to experience the horse jumping, it is worth the experience to see horses and riders from all around the world. It's a first class experience.

Especially great if the weather is not too cold to enjoy the many kiosks, as well as the larger buildings. Made a 2nd trip just to walk the grounds and see the many km of lights.
