In just under a month, Spruce Meadows will welcome some of the sport's top international show jumpers for its 46th season of show jumping. Following closure in 2020, and a modified season in 2021, plans to have a full FEI tournament season complete with fans, special features, entertainment, shopping and media access have been set.
"We are excited to welcome back the riders and horses from around the world and all of our fans for a full season of international show jumping." - Linda Southern-Heathcott (President & CEO, Spruce Meadows).
Spruce Meadows will host a total of 6 weeks of FEI show jumping between June - September, including a small tour (CSI2*/3*) and a big tour (CSI5*) each week (with the exception of the 'Founders Classic'). The International Ring will welcome more riders than ever as it will be active for 5 weeks - a first time in Spruce Meadows history of competition.
In addition to the sport, a variety of specials features and entertainment will be onsite to keep guests engaged for a full day experience. During the 'National' CSI5*/2* presented by Rolex (June 16-19), Spruce Meadows will salute First Responders. Through the generous support of Cenovus, the Salute to First Responders displays will be showcased throughout the grounds including the 40ft Stair Climb tower, part of the FireFit Regional Competition taking place during the tournament.
Canada Day celebrations will take place during the 'Pan American' CSI5*/2* presented by Rolex and will include family friendly activities that compliment the top international show jumping going on in the International Ring.
The 'North American' CSI5*/2* Tournament will Salute the Military, thanks to the continued support of ATCO. Displays of impressive machinery and equipment will be visible around the grounds. During this time fans will also enjoy the Lord Strathcona's Horse (Royal Canadians) Musical Ride.
There will be two exciting weeks of international show jumping at Spruce Meadows this September. The 'Continental' CSI5*/2*, presented by Rolex taking place September 1-4 and the 'Masters' CSIO5*/3* taking place September 7-11. Both will feature some of the top horse and rider combinations from around the world stepping through the iconic Spruce Meadows clock tower.
