Bromont, Quebec – The Bromont CCI3* Three Day Event, The Todd Sandler Challenge, will welcome VOLVO as its title sponsor for the international equestrian event taking place June 7 to 10, 2012, in Bromont, Quebec.
The 26th edition of the Volvo Bromont CCI3* Three Day Event, The Todd Sandler Challenge, will be used as a final preparatory event for both U.S. and Canadian Olympic Eventing Team hopefuls, and will attract the biggest names in the sport from around the world.
“We are pleased to strengthen the existing relationship we have with the Bromont CCI for 2012,” said Brad Painter, national marketing manager, Volvo Cars of Canada. “We look forward to an exciting event, and wish all the athletes the best of luck in the competition.”
Considered one of the most prestigious three day events in North America, and offering the highest level of eventing competition in Canada, athletes will compete for up to $25,000 in prize money and awards offered by the generous sponsors of the Volvo CCI3* Bromont Three Day Event. In addition to Volvo, Beaulieu Canada, one of the largest distributors and manufacturers of wall-to-wall carpet in Canada, will be a presenting sponsor at this year’s event.
Appropriately, the Volvo Bromont CCI3* Three Day Event is held at the picturesque Bromont Olympic Horse Park, site of equestrian events for the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. Often described as the triathlon of equestrian sport, eventing features three separate phases of competition. The opening phase, dressage, will be held in Bromont Olympic Park’s multi-million upgraded stadium on Thursday and Friday, June 7 and 8. The thrilling and spectator-friendly cross-country phase takes place Saturday, June 9, as horses and riders gallop around the course designed by Derek Di Grazia, negotiating natural obstacles at great speed. The Bromont CCI*** Three Day Event concludes on Sunday with the show jumping phase, which will ultimately determine the overall winners.
Organizers are expecting over 150 horses to compete in the CCI3*, CIC3*, CCI2*, CCI*, and CCIYJ* divisions at this year’s event. For more information on the Volvo Bromont CCI3* Three Day Event, please visit www.bromontcci.com.
