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.

My children and I love walking the grounds when there are no special events going on. It is peaceful and expansive, the grounds are meticulously groomed. There is music playing and you can just relax and feel.the stresses of the day evaporate... We enjoy it, whether it be spring, summer, fall or winter.

The grounds are stunning - my 4 year old had a great time! $5 admission is well worth it. We have been to watch horse jumping and as well for the Christmas market.

I've been going to watch show jumping at Spruce Meadows for over 30 yrs. and am continually impressed with the yearly improvements to the venues. The attention to detail in every aspect, whether it be the manicured landscapes or the food and drink establishments, it never fails to impress.
