TV schedule

If you can't be here in person for the Longines Royal International Horse Show, you can still enjoy the action from the comfort of your sofa. 

The Longines Royal International Horse Show

Three days of showjumping from the Longines Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead will be broadcast live on Sky Sports. The action will be shown live on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoon, with coverage produced by top sporting broadcaster IMG. Alongside the televised coverage there will be extensive livestreaming online covering all the action in the International Arena. 

The competition in Hickstead’s famous International Arena gets underway on Wednesday 26 July, with all the action livestreamed via a single camera on Hickstead.TV. Streaming will continue on Thursday with the first international showjumping classes of the show, the Bunn Leisure Vase and the Bunn Leisure Trophy. In the afternoon, the hugely popular MS Amlin Eventers’ Challenge takes place, where some of the world’s best event riders tackle a course of cross-country fences within the main arena.

Friday is a very special day, when Hickstead plays host to the FEI Nations Cup™ of Great Britain presented by Longines. Television viewers in the UK and Ireland can watch live on Sky Sports, while online coverage of the FEI Nations Cup will be available to FEITV subscribers only.

Over the weekend, showjumping highlights include two of the best-known classes in the sport – the Queen Elizabeth II Cup and the €200,000 Longines King George V Gold Cup. These classes, along with Saturday’s Bunn Leisure Salver and British Speed Classic, will be shown as multicamera broadcasts on both and FEI TV (free to view). Sky Sports will also broadcast live from the show on both Saturday (Sky Sports Arena Red Button) and Sunday afternoon (Sky Sports Action).

For the first time ever, Hickstead.TV will be showing a full-scale broadcast, including commentary, of both the British Horse Society Supreme Ridden Horse Championship and the De La Hey Family Supreme Pony Championship.
