I don’t think it’s possible to take a bad shot of these two. Both of them showed their fire and desire to win the moment they entered the ring and the crowd felt it. From the very first jump the audience held their breath at the take-off and cheered with every landing. Aymen and Lamborghini won the CCI 2** at the International Bromont this past summer. I can hardly wait until next year.

You’re sitting in the back seat of a car, staring out at the mountainside. It’s early morning and life is crashing around you like a Martian dome hit by an asteroid.

You’re reviewing the road that lead to this particular disaster, wondering what you could’ve done differently.

You could’ve rented a car—if you wanted to play a fearsome game of Rollerball on 4 wheels. A mere 15 years ago it was easy

but now? There’s 2000 pounds of vehicle weaponry times a million flying past in streaks of red, silver, and the unusual color du jour chosen by car companies during any given year. Some days it looks like they took all their leftover paint, mixed it together and called it a palatable name like “wine” or “dark ruby” instead of what it really resembles: Bruise.

Why bother wasting time clearing one jump. Why not 2 at time!

Friday, June 20, 2014: Harnesses are oiled and rubbed to a leathery sheen. Buckles are polished to a glistening sparkle. Carriages are washed and hand-dried to gleaming perfection. Families dress in their finest raiment, throwing the scene in the heart of the Eastern Townships of Quebec back in time to a gentler age. The horses, alert, highly trained and beautifully groomed, patiently await the moments of glory to come… the Driving event at the Bromont Equestrian Park.

The CAI 2* is a three-day event combining dressage, marathon (cross country), and obstacles, and is a qualifier for North Americans for the World Championships. Events such as these keep the traditions and disciplines of the horse-and-carriage alive.

Jessica Phoenix of Uxbridge Ontario, riding A Little Romance, took the red ribbon at the CCI Three-Star Equestrian event in Bromont, Quebec this past Sunday.  The three-day event combines the disciplines of Dressage, Cross-Country, and Jumping; the best combined score wins!  For many, this event is also a qualifier for the World Championships and the next Olympics.  Riders from many countries converged on Bromont, considered one of the best equestrian facilities in the world, to compete.  Spectators were thrilled to watch the competition come down to the last rider, on the last day to decide the winner.
