NileGuide Expert Says:
Not a lot of people know how big of a deal Spruce Meadows really is, so you can still see world-class show jumping, and a ton of other entertainment, without the crowds and prices that usually go with popular sporting events.
- Spruce Meadows, a peaceful venue just south of Calgary's city limits, is home to some of the world's most famous show-jumping events each year. The staff at Spruce Meadows welcomes some of the most talented and famous show jumpers to the four major competitions each year. But Spruce Meadows offers more than just the seasonal competition – with an equestrian fair, various horse shows, a cultural exhibition and more, all located in the picturesque countryside; it's a great place to bring the family when you're in town.
