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.

You cannot go wrong when one takes in Spruce Meadows. The grounds, the horses, the customer service, to help one get around the grounds is amazing. Flowers, and wonderful show grounds. The Only thing I would change is the catering -

This facility is very large. We went the day of a press event which was the day before a big jumping tournament. We just strolled around the grounds and enjoyed the set up of the tents and seeing the courses and the different competition grounds....More

I just went to watch "The Masters" competition last Saturday at Spruce Meadows. I hadn't been to an event there in a few years, so I was really looking forward to going. And I wasn't disappointed. Spruce Meadows is a world class, friendly, hospitable venue....More

Beautiful setting, lots to do and see for all age groups, great shops and food from various countries and of course the beautiful horses and talented riders. Entry fee was $5 and parking was free. Grounds and facilities are super clean and easy to navigate.

Tons to do and see for the whole family. I would recommend going on a weekend when there is a large tournament because that's when there is the most going on. Where else can you watch world-class athletes compete, check out a dog agility show,...More

There is always something fun going on at Spruce Meadows, but the best events are the equestrian shows. This is a first-class venue for the international events and competitors it attracts. Whether in a private sponsor's box, or out on the lush lawns, there's not...More

If you get an opportunity to enjoy a first class operation, do it! This vision that Ron and Margaret Southern created is what we all can enjoy today.
