    Horse & Country will be streaming all three phases (dressage, cross-country and showjumping) from both sections, plus the CCI5* horse inspections, live on its website from Wednesday to Sunday.  The live stream will be available with English or German commentary. If you aren’t already signed-up to Horse & Country, either you can take out a 12-month subscription at £59.99 or £6.99 per month, or choose the pay per view/event pass option at £14.99, which gives you 30 days access to the event. While there is a seven-day free trial available, please note that this does NOT include access to live sport, so it cannot be used to watch Luhmühlen.

    German residents will be able to watch some of the cross-country and showjumping action on NDR television.

    How to watch Luhmühlen live with a VPN

    While it is not necessary to use a VPN to access Horse & Country’s live stream, if you would like to protect your online viewing from being monitored by third-parties, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) can help you do this. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t able to track what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

    There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as free 30-day ExpressVPN trial which offers a 100% risk-free money back guarantee. If you’re not happy with the service any time within the first 30-days, then you can cancel with no penalties at all.

    How to use a VPN

    Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

    1. Install the VPN of your choice. ExpressVPN is the one we recommend.

    2. Open up the VPN app and choose the location of the service you wish to access.

    3. Then head over to Horse & Country on your browser or device and enjoy the livestream.

    We recommend VPN services in the context of legal recreational uses. For example:

    1. Accessing a service from another country (subject to the terms and conditions of that service)
    2. Protecting your online security and strengthening your online privacy when abroad

    We do not support or condone the illegal or malicious use of VPN services. Consuming pirated content that is paid-for is neither endorsed nor approved by Future Publishing.
