The Royal Windsor Horse Show started today, and we’ve got the full lowdown on watching the event and knowing who to look for.
Kent Farrington, Laura Kraut, Jessica Springsteen, Lauren Hough, Eric Lamaze and Tiffany Foster represent the North American contingent, and they’ll be facing a slew of formidable foes in top UK riders, French Olympic veterans, and more.
Live streaming will be available via the Royal Windsor Horse Show website. Live streaming was a successful addition to the Show in 2016 and will once again show the majority of the action taking place in the Castle Arena across the five days of competition.
The newly upgraded CSI5* Show Jumping and CDI4* Dressage will be among the world-class International highlights available to view live, as will many of the best Showing classes and the ever-popular displays, including the Musical Drive of the King’s Troop RHA, the Musical Ride of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment, the Shetland Pony Grand National, and the DAKS Pony Club Mounted Games.
Streaming will start with National Show Jumping at 7.15am on Wednesday 10 May, with a host of Britain’s best riders taking to the arena over the course of the morning, including crowd favorites Ben Maher, Laura Renwick and Tim Stockdale.
Also among the highlights available online will be the recently announced retirement of double Olympic gold medal winning duo, Nick Skelton and Big Star, scheduled to take place on 5.05 pm local time on Sunday 14 May (12:05 EST). The ceremony is set to be an emotional occasion, as the pair bow out in style in front of Her Majesty The Queen.
