With Kentucky and Badminton in the rearview mirror, I’ve just about dragged myself out of my mid-spring post-event hibernation — and now I’m ready to relive all the action. Luckily for me, and for you, today’s the day that NBC will be airing its Land Rover Kentucky highlights program, which hits the airwaves at 2.30 p.m. Eastern time. Obviously, all of us want to experience the thrills of THAT win all over again, but you can also consider tuning in an act of giving back to the sport: every single one of us who switches over to NBC to watch will give those viewer numbers a boost, and if we can show the powers-that-be in broadcasting that eventing’s got a robust fanbase, it gives us a foothold for future broadcasting opportunities, which would be great news.
You can also rewatch the action in full from both the CCI4*-S and CCI5* (and, actually, those CSI3* showjumping classes on Friday and Saturday night!) via USEF Network/ClipMyHorse.TV. There’ll be further chances to catch horse sport on mainstream TV, too: the highlights program will also air on CNBC on Saturday, May 27 at 12.00 p.m. EST. Tune in and feel it all, all over again!
