Cross-country morning has dawned early and bright here at Bromont International. It’s a beautiful day here in Quebec — the horses will appreciate the cool breeze, and everyone will enjoy the sunshine.

I love cross-country morning. There’s an almost tangible sense of anticipation in the air. As I write, the riders are all getting their game faces on in the barns or heading out on course to have a last-minute talk with a worrisome fence.

I headed over to the barn with my camera to spy on everyone’s preparations. Here’s a glimpse behind the scenes:

The CCI1* has jumped wrapped up and the CCI3* is set to kick off here in a few moments. Allez Concours Complet!
