August 17, 2007 — Geographic restraints will no longer keep horse sport fans from enjoying the Hampton Classic, the Capital Challenge or the Washington International horse shows. Using today’s streaming video technology, Equestriansport.tv is bringing the show to fans. Visit www.equestriansport.tv to see the action in several rings.
The three events will be broadcast daily, providing real-time viewing to fans of the equestrian world who can’t get to the locations. Streaming video is the newest addition to the coverage of the horse shows available on the web. Five years ago the management of Capital Challenge redesigned their web site to publish written coverage, daily photos, and searchable results. This year’s streaming video will give the opportunity to an unlimited number of equestrians to enjoy the show.
Capital Challenge and Equestrian Sport TV rolled out the first live free video coverage of an American event on September 30, 2006. Word traveled quickly and two days later there were over 4,000 people who watched the video stream. Since then, coverage of the Upperville Horse Show, the Beacon Hill Show Jumping Classic and several other archived events have been added to the site.
Equestrian Sport TV is a collaborative project by Oliver Kennedy, Brooks Moore and Jon Kassel.
