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.

Spruce Meadows is definitely a highlight of Christmas time. The grounds are decorated; the trees have lights, and there are fire pits outside to enjoy. The vendors are varied and include local Canadian fare. Delightful. Truly the Canadian version of the Christmas markets in Europe.

Fun international foods and shopping. Watching horse and rider skills, amazing! Bring your own picnic lunch if you want, sit on the grass in your own chair, relax in the sun.

I also tremendously enjoyed the variety of musical entertainments, food vendors, dog trials, and shopping areas. There were... More
