Equestrian fans from around the world will be able to follow all the action from this summer’s European championships, thanks to Horse & Country TV.
Specialist equestrian television channel H&C will be providing comprehensive coverage of the FEI European Championships, with online reports and videos during the competition, and extensive TV highlights shown soon after each event.
The action gets underway in Aachen, Germany from 11-23rd of August with the FEI European Jumping and Dressage championships, then moves to Blair Castle in Scotland for the much-anticipated FEI European Eventing Championships. The Horse & Country reporting team will be present at both events, ensuring fans of equestrian sport can access all the latest news and results.
Horse & Country’s web team will also be producing reports about all of the other European championships, including Para-dressage and vaulting.
The Horse & Country website, which attracts more than 2.5 million visitors a year, is hosting a dedicated Europeans minisite that will deliver up to the minute news, reports, opinion pieces, blogs, interviews, video clips, images and social media updates throughout the championships.
“We have provided full online coverage of major equestrian events since the launch of our equestrian news website back in 2010, and an increasing number of visitors now rely on our website for detailed reports from many of the biggest UK events, including Badminton, Burghley, Hickstead, HOYS and Olympia,” says Horse & Country’s Managing Director Richard Burdett. “As well as our expert reports from these events, we have also led the way in terms of producing extensive video interviews with the sport’s leading names, something that has been hugely popular with our viewers.”

Viewers in the UK and Ireland can also watch highlights of the action via Sky 253 and the H&C Play app, which allows subscribers to watch on their laptop, tablet, smart phone or PC.
The coverage begins on Friday 21 August with highlights of the team dressage competition, and will continue with the Grand Prix Special and Freestyle dressage, the team and individual showjumping and the eventing competition. In total, we’ll be showing six hours of top class equestrian sport.
