For the past six months, the Bromont Organizing Committee has worked in close collaboration with local, provincial and federal government agencies to ensure running the MARS Bromont CCI is safe for all participants. Unfortunately, the current state of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic would jeopardize this goal of guaranteed safety. It was therefore decided by the Public Health Agency of Canada, with full support from the Bromont Organizing Committee, that international travel should be restricted for this event, therefore necessitating its cancellation as per the FEI rules.
Lower entries due to Coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions and a bit of wet weather leading up to the Bromont CCI-S did nothing to hold back the enthusiasm for this competition. The weather held, autumn colors were stunning, and the competition was friendly between riders who were able to attend from across Ontario and Quebec.
Sue Ockendon, organizer of the MARS Bromont CCI Three-Day Event and the FEI Eventing Nations Cup announced today that the event has decided to consider dates further along the calendar. The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for Bromont to confirm that it would be possible for competitors to travel on August 15-18.
Bromont Horse Trials Inc, organizers of the MARS Equestrian Bromont CCI Three-Day Event scheduled for June 3 to 7 have announced the cancellation of this event for 2020. Little Bromont planned for June 13, the following weekend at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, is also not expected to run.
