It is with great disappointment the Bromont Organizing Committee announces the cancellation of the MARS Bromont CCI planned for June 2 to 6, 2021.

For the past six month, 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.

With vaccination rates across North America continuing to increase, the Bromont Organizing Committee is looking forward to hosting the FEI Eventing Nations Cup Bromont and Bromont CCI-S Three Day Event the weekend of August 13th to 15th at the iconic venue, Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park, site of the equestrian events of the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. We will continue to cooperate fully with the appropriate government bodies to ensure these events operate safely and follow all COVID guidelines.

For those riders who have yet to experience competition at Bromont, you’re in for a treat. Derek Di Grazia of Carmel Valley, California, FEI cross-country course designer at Bromont since 2009 and the course designer for the Tokyo Olympic Games, 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.

The Bromont Horse Trials are made possible in part through a contribution from Sport Canada. The Bromont organizing committee also wishes to thank the Government of Quebec, and the City of Bromont for their support.
