The International Bromont: the best is yet to come!

Bromont, July 28th – As the second week of the International Bromont starts today, the best is yet to come. The final weekend, July 30th to August 1st, promises to be electrifying.

The main events of the International Bromont forecast a very exciting weekend: starting on Friday, the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park will beat to the tempo of National and International level competitions.

Friday July 30th, the Open Jumper 1.50m, an FEI sanctioned event, will warm up the ring before the CET (Canadian Equestrian Team) Medal, a national competition presented by Burkman Capital.

The weekend events, however, are the attention getters: Saturday July 31st will host the VIA Rail Double Slalom, a thrilling event. The Double Slalom is composed of two parallel courses where riders race each other. It is an elimination battle where time and precision are essential to get to the next round.

After that event, VIA Rail and the International Bromont will randomly draw ten train trips worth $500 each, among the day’s visitors.

Again on the Saturday, the Modified Grand Prix at 3h30 will allow our best riders to compete on a course similar to the Grand Prix for young horses.

Sunday August 1st will culminate with the Hunter Classic, an elimination event both on the flat and over fence, where all non professionals will compete. As a Hunter class, the Classic will showcase hythm and elegance from both riders and horses.

Without a doubt, the star of the International Bromont will be the Grand Prix on Sunday afternoon August 1st. This event, at 1.60 meters, will be a qualifier for both the World Equestrian Games in Kentucky at the end of September and the European Championships of 2011 in Madrid.

The second week of the International Bromont, from July 28th to August 1st 2010, will feature some of the most important and popular events of the competition. Celebrating its thirty-fifth edition, the International Bromont is the most important horseshow in Eastern Canada.
