Cross-country morning has dawned early and bright here at Bromont International. It’s going to be a beautiful day: a shade on the warm side with a high of 78 with a 10% chance of rain. 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 out with my camera to spy on everyone’s preparations — here are few photos:

The first rider of the day, Buck Davidson on Tiger Lion, just marched past on his way to cross-country warm-up…

…so I guess that’s my cue to head on out there. We’ll keep you posted… Allez Concours Complet!
