Entries are strong leading up to the exciting return of the MARS Bromont CCI that is taking place June 8-12 in rural Bromont, Quebec. Bromont is a popular destination for North American competitors who are eager to return to this 1976 Olympic Games venue just 90 minutes from Burlington, Vermont.

We are pleased to announce the recipients of the MARS Bromont Rising scholarship program. The brainchild of Bromont organizer, Sue Ockendon, and the late Steve Blauner, the program began in 2019.

Steve had a vision of supporting young eventers from the U.S. and Canada who were not yet under the radar of national U25 training programs. Riders competing at any level of FEI competition offered are eligible to apply.

The following athletes will receive $2,500 grants through the MARS Bromont Rising Program:

- Rory Frangos (FL-USA)
- Lulu Malinoski (PA-USA)
- Lea Adams-Blackmore (VA-USA)
- Emalee Bodimeade (ON-CAN)
- Sophie Miller (SC-USA)
- Alexa Gartenburg (PA-USA)
- Maddie Hale (KY-USA)
- Abby Dubrawski (MA-USA)
- Makayla Rydzik (ON-CAN)
- Sophie Click (WA-USA)

The following athletes have been invited to participate in lectures and course walks:

- Lea Kilpatrick (FL-USA)
- Emma Mchugh (QUE-CAN)

Cara Whitham of Stoney Creek, Ontario will again do the Centerline dressage workshop and other presentations along with course walks and coaching by New Zealand Olympian, Andrew Nicholson.

Bromont Rising chair Peter Gray is excited to be able to offer these scholarships again at the MARS Bromont CCI happening this June 8-12 and the Galway Downs International Three-Day Event which takes place November 2-6. “Through the generosity of MARS Equestrian, I am very pleased to be a part of this initiative to identify some of the countries up-and-coming emerging talent in the sport and to provide them with an amazing 3 days of education and team building.”
