Bromont, Québec, Canada – August 5, 2019 – Daniel Coyle (IRL) ran away with first and second place during the $133,700 Grand Prix CSI 3* presented by the Gouvernement of Québec during the International Bromont held at the Bromont Olympic Equestrian Park on Sunday.
Michel Vaillancourt (FRA), course designer for the second week of competition at International Bromont, prepared a difficult course for the final Grand Prix of the 44th edition of the competition. Technical difficulties that were the most trouble for the participants included, a short approach at an angle to the second obstacle, a combination on a straight line towards the in-gate followed by a tight turn going to the sixth effort, as well as obstacle 11, which was preceded by a broken line and then followed by a short 90-degree turn.
