    How to watch Bicton Horse Trials

    For those who can’t make it in person, all the action will be available to watch live via a dedicated Elite Eventing channel on Horse & Country’s streaming service, H&C+.

    The trot-up (Thursday 1 September) and dressage (Friday 2 September) will be free to view.

    The cross-country (Saturday 3 September) and the final trot-up and showjumping phases (Sunday 4 September) can be watched with a ‘Weekend Pass’, which are now available for £25, or for £20 for H&C+ members.

    All Weekend Pass holders will be able to watch all of the content on-demand for 90 days following the event.

    Horse & Country TV say: “Produced by the team behind the Event Rider Masters series, Elite Eventing offers a global first that creates a direct link between you the viewer, and the sport through the creation of the ‘Elite Eventing Premium’ prize fund.

    In the simplest of terms – for every sale of the Chedington Bicton Park 5* Live Stream Weekend Pass, over the initial 5,000 purchases, Elite Eventing donates £7.50 directly into the additional prize fund for the Top 10 Bicton 5*. Funds will also be available for the further development of the sport.”
