The MARS EQUESTRIAN Bromont Three-Day Event kicked off today with the first horse inspection at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park in the picturesque rolling hills of Bromont, Quebec.

115 CCI horses representing six countries presented their horse to the Ground Jury and FEI veterinary delegate this afternoon for inspection. Just two horses were held and all passed on reinspection in the CCI divisions.

Dressage begins Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. with Shelby Brost (CAN) and Bo Brown in the CCI2*-L U25 section and Colleen Loach (CAN) and Foreign Quality in the CCI3*-L. Ride times are available online at this link.

Entrance to the event is free for spectators and show jumping on Sunday will be live streamed through Bromont's Facebook page.

Derek di Grazia of Carmel Valley, California, FEI cross-country course designer at Bromont since 2009, will set a challenging track with the help of Canadian course builder Jay Hambly and his team, utilizing the spectacular hills and natural water features Bromont has to offer. Sue Ockendon, the event organizer, spares no expense to bring in the best to officiate from around the world to provide each and every rider a true evaluation of their abilities.

This is the second stop on the USEF/USET Foundation North American Futures Team Challenge. The Team Challenge was announced during the 2018 USEA Annual Meeting & Convention last December as part of U.S. eventing’s strategic plan, spearheaded by Erik Duvander, U.S. Eventing High Performance Director. The new program looks to create a “culture of competitiveness” and provide a more clearly defined pathway for eventing athletes in the United States.
