The World Equestrian Games in Canada
The FEI Bureau just voted unanimously to award the 2018 World Equestrian Games to Bromont/Montreal, which beat out Lexington, Ky., the only other contender and host of the 2010 Games. Bromont/Montreal will become the second host city outside Europe in the history of the Games. It originally looked like the Games would automatically be awarded to Bromont, as the remaining bid countries had all withdrawn their applications by January 2013. But the FEI reopened the bid process in July 2013 due to concerns that Bromont would not be able to secure the financial support necessary to host the Games. Lexington joined the bid process last October.
