Project Description

1977

In a city and province built on horseback, Gail Greenough’s riding stands out.
Gail came to the sport of show jumping at the age of 11, riding at Calgary’s Spruce Meadows.
In 1986, Gail shocked the show jumping world, winning the individual gold medal at the world championships in Germany.
With her victory, she was the youngest person, the first woman, the first North American and the first Canadian to ever win the world championship.
