The year’s seven-fixture Premier Leagues series continues tomorrow at the popular Lancashire venue of Myerscough College, which is hosting 26 classes across six days (30 April – 05 May 2021). Although taking place behind closed doors, Horse & Country TV will be live streaming so you can be a part of the action from the comfort of home.

Producers of the next generation get the show underway on Friday with the BD Young Pony and BD International Young Horse qualifiers followed by, on Saturday, BD Seven Year Old and Shearwater Young Horse Championship first rounds.

Sunday and Monday both boast a brace of bumper Small Tour classes – the Fairfax Saddles Prix St Georges and Saracen Horse Feeds Intermediate I, plus an Andrews Bowen Advanced Medium each day. Then Tuesday is the day for dancing, with no less than four freestyle classes - Advanced Medium, Prix St Georges, Inter I and Grand Prix, plus the HAYGAIN Intermediate II.

The six-day show concludes on Wednesday with one of the highlights - the LeMieux Grand Prix. Starting at 10:30 the 20-strong class boasts a high class field of entrants who'll be vying for a coveted spot at the LeMieux National Championships in September.

To name just a few - Becky Moody and Famke PF who’ve shown much promise in the handful of Grand Prix starts the mare has had so far, GP Freestyle winners at Keysoe last week - Jess Dunn and LG Alicante Valley, Emile Faurie and Shilo, fresh from a Grand Prix win at Hunters and a horse he thinks an awful lot of, and Amy Woodhead with Mount St John Kom Fairytale who won at Vale View High Profile last year.

While government restrictions currently mean no spectators, you can still watch the action as Horse & Country will be on hand to livestream via H&C + membership – you can subscribe to watch – it’s just £5.99 per month and you can cancel at any time.
