Bromont, July 27, 2012 – The FEI (Fédération Équestre Internationale) events, which will start tomorrow at International Bromont will include about thirty participants, notably Mario Deslauriers, Jonathan and Ben Asselin, Amy Millar, Leslie Howard as well as Nicolas Dello Joio, winner of the BonjourQué World Cup qualifier on July 22, 2012.

While last week’s number of participants in the FEI events at International Bromont fluctuated between 25 and 28, this week’s International events should count and additional 10 horse/rider teams. "`For fans of high level competitions, this is probably the nicest of the two weeks of the show." Indicated show manager, Roger Deslauriers. "We have essentially the same number of horses altogether, however, a higher number participate in the FEI events (than last week). With more competitors, the level of difficulty and the pressure tend to go up."

There will be two FEI events at International Bromont: the first, the Open Jumper 1m50 class on Friday July 27 starting at 3h30, while the second, the Grand Prix with fences at a maximum height of 1m60, will take place on Sunday July 29, starting at 2h30.

In addition to International classes, this weekend’s programme will include highlights such as the Hunter Derby, new this year, and the Modified Grand Prix, both on Saturday July 28, as well as many medal classes for Junior/Amateurs (Aubert Brillant, Jump Canada, François Ferland) on Sunday, and the not to be missed Royal Canin Challenge, on July 29.

International Bromont promises an unforgettable 2012 edition with five FEI events, the return of the Royal Canin Challenge on both Sundays, as well as its two new events. For more details on the programme, visit our Internet site at
