Saskatoon Prairieland Park Corporation applauds the Saskatchewan Horse Federation for its initiative to provide education to the horse community on issues that affect all horse owners.
With respect the news release dated March 15, 2016 we would expect extensive discussions to take place over the next year that would include all industry partners, clubs, associations, event organizers, etc.
At this time, and for the 2016 calendar year we will not be making any change to the status of the Prairieland Park Ag Centre and will not institute mandatory testing for EIA.
We will continue to work with our clients to ensure that their events are a success, their exhibitors satisfied and the utmost attention to safety will be our priority.
We would encourage all horse owners to attend the Equi-sessions that will be offered by the Saskatchewan Horse Federation.

Gardenscape was established in 1990 and has evolved into one of western Canada’s premier backyard lifestyle and horticulture shows promoting, educating, inspiring and celebrating all aspects of horticulture and backyard living… In 1990 the show had a handful of booths in the Jubilee Building and grew in a few short years to fill the 40,000 square foot hall. As Prairieland Park grew so did the show and now Gardenscape has in excess of 400 booths and has expanded into 4 halls with a total of 120,000 square feet of trade show and exhibit space.
Some of the successes of Gardenscape are attributed to the strict show criteria. Maintaining this focus over the years has been a challenge at times but the rewards have made it worthwhile. Show patrons and exhibitors have come to appreciate the industry focused exhibits and displays and have endorsed this mandate with increases in both show attendance and exhibitors over the years.
Gardenscape is an excellent example of Prairieland’s commitment to support industry and has provided an opportunity for the industry to come together annually to market and educate the community on products and services.
In 2015, we were very pleased to welcome Saskatchewan Blue Cross as the official title sponsor of Gardenscape (Saskatchewan Blue Cross Gardenscape) for the next three years.
