Horse & Country and British Eventing partner to live stream extensive free coverage of BE’s Winter Series 2022/23

Leading international equestrian sports network Horse & Country (H&C) and British Eventing (BE), the National Governing Body for the sport of Eventing in Great Britain, today announced the details of extensive live coverage of BE’s Winter Series. The partnership will deliver eventing fans 24 days of entirely free sports coverage in the build-up to next season. Viewers can watch the action on H&C’s streaming service, H&C+, and also on the BE website, britisheventing.com

This initiative will see a further increase in H&C’s already extensive eventing coverage and reflects both parties’ commitment to increasing the reach and awareness of British Eventing both at home in the UK and in key international markets.

The Winter Series comprises two competitions, Arena Eventing and the recently launched ACE (Anyone Can Event). Both formats are open to BE members and non-members alike and are designed to give Showjumping and Cross Country practice during the winter months so that riders start the new season with the best possible preparation.

H&C’s team will stream a total of 24 days of sport across both competitions including the finals which take place at Aston Le Walls (Arena Eventing, April 2nd) and Aintree (ACE, June 1st – 4th).

Viewers can enjoy full coverage from the main arena on the following dates:

On behalf of H&C, Director of Content Jonathan Rippon commented, “We’ve had a long and fruitful relationship with BE and we’re particularly proud of our reputation as the Home of Eventing. We know that many of our members are not only fans of the sport, but competitors too. Today’s announcement underpins our commitment to superserve the Eventing community from grass roots to 5* with more of the coverage they love.”

Helen West, Chief Executive of BE said “Both the Winter ACE and Arena Eventing series are proving extremely popular and we are delighted to partner with H&C to showcase them as a free-to-view live stream. It will be great to follow the series from the qualifiers through to their Championship Finals at the Aintree International Equestrian Centre and Aston le Walls respectively. We are extremely grateful to H&C for their support and look forward to bringing our Winter Series to a wider audience over the forthcoming months.”

To watch all H&C’s eventing coverage, make sure you are signed up to H&C+.  Membership is only £5.99 per month. And, with so much sport coming up, it’s a good time to consider annual membership for just £59.99.
