Bromont, Quebec, June 30, 2011 - Less than a month before the start of competitions, the organizing committee for the International Bromont is more confident than ever that the 2011 edition held July 20th to 24th and July 27th to 31st, promises to be outstanding.
The registration period officially ends on July 8th and organizers are delighted that a number of participants have already confirmed their presence. Last year's two time champion Yann Candele, who won both the World Cup BonjourQuébec.com and the Grand Prix, will be part of the 2011 field. International Bromont is proud to see talented riders such as Jonathan Asselin and Nick Dello Joio also returning this summer.
"We are very happy with the entries for the 2011 edition", confirmed the show manager, Roger Deslauriers, adding, "news travelled not only about the quality of the new footing but also about the many improvements made to the site since last year."
Organizers also recognize that the USEF certification of a number of hunter classes has influenced the participation in that division. "This certification is done for the riders," said Deslauriers, "Obviously, it is positive for us to see that riders appreciate this initiative."
With the USEF certification of three new and exciting classes in the jumper division (Royal Canin Challenge, Hunting competitions, and Hit and Hurry) and renovated facilities, International Bromont is ready for an unprecedented edition and invites riders at large to register rapidly. Stall reservations close this Friday July 1st, while registrations officially end Friday, July 8th, 2011.
International Bromont, a leader in Hunter/Jumper events, offers two weeks of competitions from July 20th to 24th and July 27th to 31st 2011 and, as for the last 36 years, this event will take place in the Eastern Townships region of Quebec, a short distance from the Vermont border. It is the biggest horseshow in Eastern Canada with total prize money of over $400,000 and one of five major Canadian events on the World Cup circuit.
