One of the most exciting parts of this show is the $172,800 USD International Bromont CSI 3*-W, which is the first class of the 2016–2017 Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping North American League. The NAL series includes 14 prestigious events in the U.S., Canada and Mexico and offer qualifiers for the Longines FEI World Cup™ Jumping Final, set for March 27–April 4, 2017, at the CenturyLink Center in Omaha, Nebraska. 

Bromont, proud to welcome riders

Quebec riders will represent a large portion of the field during the two weeks of the event next July. To date, David Arcand, Laurie Bucci, François Lamontagne and Josée Turcotte, to name a few, will participate in the two weeks of competition. Many Canadians, including Lindsay Bradshaw, Keean White, Erynn Ballard, Jill Henselwood and Mac Cone will also compete. Mario Deslauriers and his daughter Lucy will also take part in the competition.

Mexico and Colombia have already entered riders for the CSI2*, July 20 to 24, 2016, including Fernando Martinez (MEX), Claudia Ballesteros (MEX), Carlos Ramirez (COL) and Juan Manuel Gallego (COL).

American riders Leslie Howard and Andrew Welles have also registered for the CSI3*-W, July 27 to 31, 2016.

Stay the course

"The competition world has changed a lot over the last 5 years, and with the arrival of new competitions, we, the organizers, have to go the extra mile and offer athletes top-notch facilities, a warm welcome and a smooth and efficient organization. It is a challenge for all organizers as we have to continually better ourselves" remarked Roger Deslauriers, the show manager. "We are touched that riders chose Bromont to compete: the venue is unique and magnificent and riders' participation allows us to continue our improvements. We maintain our objectives: in the end we will have new outdoor rings along Gale Road, new stables, as well as an indoor arena."

In 2016, we have invested for a new footing in the international and national rings, as well as in the warm-up rings. As for the hunter rings, although they cannot be moved for 2016, a mix of sand and fibre was added to improve the existing footing. Moreover, the temporary stables will be installed in a way that will provide wider aisles.
