Don't miss 'Daisy Dines With...' on H&C TV

Hickstead Director Daisy Bunn has been working on an exciting new television project over the winter… 

After the success of her long-running Hickstead blog for Horse & Country TV, the channel approached Daisy to host a new television series for them. But Daisy Dines With is an interview show with a difference! 

After the hit pilot with Olympic legend and Hickstead veteran Nick Skelton, Daisy returns with a full series. The first episode premieres at 8pm this Saturday (24 March), featuring none other than Hickstead’s own Shane Breen.

No other sport sees athletes competing at top-flight level from their teens all the way to their retirement. So much is written about every detail of their competitive and professional lives, but it is rare to get a glimpse into their home lives.

Born and bred in the equestrian world, Daisy has worked and lived alongside many of the top riders, and their friendships lend a unique, relaxed atmosphere to the interviews.

The riders invite Daisy into their homes, give her a quick tour of their yards and then cook her supper, sharing their favourite recipes. Although riders rarely get to spend much time in their own kitchens (since they spend much of their life on the road), the culinary results turn out to be surprisingly delicious. Each episode features surprise dinner party guests, many of them equestrian stars in their own right.

The series will feature interviews with top showjumpers Nick Skelton, Shane Breen and William Whitaker, as well as Olympic eventing star Tina Cook, dressage legend Carl Hester and winning husband and wife team, Pippa and William Funnell.

Watch Daisy Dines With at the following times:

  • Shane Breen – Saturday 24 March at 8pm
  • The Funnells - Saturday 31 March at 8pm
  • William Whitaker - Saturday 7 April at 8pm
  • Carl Hester - Saturday 14 April at 8pm
  • Tina Cook - Saturday 21 April at 8pm

H&C is available on Sky channel 253 and on Amazon Video
