Catch up with top equestrian action

  • Enthusiasts who missed recent top equestrian events including the Horse & Hound Olympia Dressage Gala, the British Open Show Jumping Championships and the Belfast International Horse Show, are being given another opportunity to enjoy these fantastic spectacles.

    A DVD of the grand prix kürs at Olympia, with action from combinations such as Emma Hindle with Wie Weltmeyer and Carl Hester on Escapado, has been released to help raised funds for the British Equestrian team’s trip to the Athens Olympics.

    The production includes optional commentary by top judge Stephen Clarke and £1 from every copy is being donated to the Athens fund. The DVD costs £13.95 (plus £2.95 for postage and packaging within the UK) and can be ordered online at www.grovetv.com

    An official video of last year’s Belfast Indoor International Horse Show is also now on sale. Featuring a selection of top class show jumping including the puissance, knockout, six-bar and international grand prix classes, as well as exciting displays by Jean-Francois Pignon, the Naprous stunt team and the Irish Shetland Grand National, this video will entertain all the family.

    The video costs £14.99 and is available from equestrian retailers and www.belfasthorseshow.com
