‘Take two’ at the International Bromont

François Lamontagne - International Bromont 2011
Bromont, July 27th, 2011 – The International Bromont enters its second week of competition eager to raise the bar even higher.

“The number of visitors we had today (Wednesday July 27), bode well for the success of the second week,” contends show manager Roger Deslauriers. “We saw a lot of traffic for a week day, and are expecting to welcome a lot of spectators for our weekend line-up”, further explains the man who has been the show’s lifeline since the beginning.

Today’s classes may not count in the world ranking of participants; however, they still allow them to accumulate points towards the Champion and Champion Reserve titles in each division, from 1m to 1m40.

Riders participating at the international level are still busy, as a number of them have different horses entered in this week’s classes, as is the case for François Lamontagne, today’s winner of the 1m25 event.

High level riders will have to pass the jog test once again on Thursday, in anticipation of the FEI events of the weekend, namely the 1m50 on Friday July 29th and the Grand Prix on the closing Sunday July 31st. Riders in both events are eligible to win points towards their Fédération Équestre Internationale’s rankings. 

The International Bromont: more than just horses
The International Bromont is also the place to visit the co-op members of the ‘Marché du Terroir’, for the last weekend, while young and old can discover the equine world at the Equus Pocus tent.

The International Bromont, with its novel attractions and revised programming, is eagerly awaiting visitors for two weeks of unequalled competitions in Quebec.

International Bromont, the bar is high! This 36th edition will take place at the Bromont Equestrian Olympic Park. $10 per person and free for children under 12. For more information: www.internationalbromont.org.
