Spruce Meadows cancels Masters show jumping event because of COVID-19

Spruce Meadows has cancelled its marquee Masters show jumping tournament scheduled for September because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The equestrian and soccer facility in Calgary had already called off its summer competitive season that features four tournaments over five weeks starting June 4.

 

The Masters was scheduled for September 9-13. Spruce Meadows planned to offer $6 million in prize money in 2020.

 

The tournament season draws almost half a million spectators annually to watch the top horses and riders in the world.

 

Spruce Meadows, founded by Ron and Margaret Southern, opened in 1975 and continues to be run by the family. The facility features 160 hectares of indoor and outdoor riding terrain, stables and convention space.
