Horse & Country to show extensive coverage of LeMieux Nationals

The LeMieux National Dressage Championships will feature in a one-hour special coming soon to Horse & Country TV, Sky Channel 253. Additionally, all of the tests from the Horse Health Grand Prix Freestyle and the LeMieux Grand Prix will be available in full and on-demand on H&C Play, H&C’s online and app-based service.

The one-hour programme will feature highlights of the Grand Prix Freestyle as well as the Salute to the British Olympic medallists with Fiona Bigwood, Charlotte Dujardin, Carl Hester and Spencer Wilton all in attendance. There will also be interviews and behind the scenes action, all presented by H&C’s Jenny Rudall. The premiere is at 9pm on Sunday 25 September and the broadcast sponsors are LeMieux and Equipe. The programme will also be broadcast on H&C’s local channels in The Netherlands, Sweden, Australia and Germany, showcasing British dressage talent to a wider international audience.

And for those who want all the dressage they can get, all of the tests from the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle will be available exclusively in H&C Play, Horse & Country TV’s online subscription service where viewers can watch the live channel online and via apps. Play subscribers also have access to 10-day catch-up and on-demand content. 

Commenting on the coverage, Jason Brautigam, Chief Executive of British Dressage said: “We are delighted that Horse & Country are confirmed as media partners for our National Championships once again. We are currently enjoying four days of top class dressage action at Stoneleigh, showcasing the best of British talent, so it will be fantastic to share some of the highlights with our supporters and enthusiasts who were unable to attend, as well as bring the Nationals to a whole new audience.”

H&C’s Managing Director Richard Burdett added: “We know from our viewers just how strong the demand is for more dressage on television. We’re delighted to be working so closely with British Dressage to increase coverage and raise the profile of the sport both at home and internationally.”
