Eventing fans will be able to enjoy increased television coverage throughout 2008, via the Sky channel Horse and Country TV.

The first event to be shown on the channel will be Burnham Market International, which is held on 28-30 March.

Also set to be filmed is Houghton International, the country’s newest international horse trials that runs from 22-23 May at Houghton Hall, North-west Norfolk.

The filming at these two events is part of Horse and Country TV’s plan to extend horse trials coverage over the next 12 months.

Nick Ludlow of Horse and Country TV said: “We are delighted to be covering Burnham Market International and to have Houghton International in the schedule.

“Eventing makes great viewing from the precision and elegance of the dressage arena to the accuracy of the show jumping ring and the fast excitement of cross country.”

Horse and Country TV is available on Sky Channel 280.
