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.

We visited last week to see the Christmas Lights. It really was a magical drive around the place. Did not stop other than to take a few phogographs but the cafe was open.

We attended the Spruce Meadows Christmas Market a couple of weeks ago and had so much fun. We loved the one of a kind gifts that we purchased for friends and family. We also enjoyed the Christmas entertainment, it really put us in the Christmas mood. We will attend again next year. So much fun!
