Always dreamed of eventing abroad but don’t feel like dropping fat stacks on equine airfare? The Bromont CCI Three-Day Event is about the closest thing you can get to an authentic European three-day experience without stepping hoof off the continent.

The event is held in Quebec, an exotic Canadian province where everyone drowns their French fries in gravy and cheese curds.



Winding your way along Bromont’s back roads, it’s easy to pretend that you’re in some quaint mountain village in the Alps.


Sweet ride, Monsieur Chinch.

French is the sole official language of Quebec and is the first or second language of 95 percent of the population.


Le Chinchillerie?

Like many European countries, Canada has a universal healthcare system that is mostly free at point of use.


Which is to say, if you’re going to fall off a horse and get injured anywhere, Bromont is a pretty good place to do so.

Altogether, it may add up to a bit of culture shock for the average ‘Murican.


Too much?

Don’t worry, Chinch, your ketchup and fries will still be here when you get home.


That’s what I’m talking about.

The 2017 event is coming up fast, June 8-11, and the entry deadline has been extended through the end of the month, so get yours in today! For more information, visit the website here.

Bromont bound!
