EquestrianSport.tv is Bringing the Show To You
RELEASE: August 25, 2008
AUTHOR/ADMINISTRATOR: By Susan Benson
Once again, geographic restraints will no longer keep horse sport fans from enjoying the Capital Challenge or the Washington International horse shows. Using today’s streaming video technology, Equestriansport.tv
is bringing the show to you. Visit www.equestriansport.tv
and you will be face-to-face with the action in several rings. See the arena, the judges, the presenters, and of course, the horses and their riders. There is no longer a need to rely on a friend’s description; instead, see it for your self.
The 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. Six years ago the management of Capital Challenge redesigned their website 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 Saturday, September 30, 2006. Word traveled quickly and two days later there were over 4,000 people who watched the video stream. 60,000 viewers caught the action from the Capital Challenge In 2007 with 8,000 viewers at one time and in 2008, 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. Equestrian Sport TV brings multimedia coverage of horse sport to a worldwide audience by using the Internet to deliver real time and recorded content and avoid the geographic and time limitations of traditional broadcast media.
