Your Guide to Watching the Carolina International Live Stream

This time next week we’ll be Live with the first of four days of coverage from the Carolina International on EQSports.Net!

Posted by EQSportsNet on Wednesday, March 16, 2016

EN readers are in for a treat over the next four days as EQSportsNet will be live streaming coverage from Carolina International with commentary from Karen O’Connor and Charlotte Skinner-Robson. All phases of the hotly contested CIC3* will be streamed, as well as show jumping and cross country for the CIC2*.

We’ve been receiving questions on how to watch the live steam, so Helen Murray of EQSportsNet kindly put together a guide to get you started. It is free to watch all of the live event coverage. If you want to watch on demand after the event, you need a Full Access subscription for $25 per month. All Full Access subscribers can also request videos of their individual rides at no extra cost.
