The world’s elite are gearing up for the next leg of the Event Rider Masters at St James’s Place Barbury Horse Trials – and you can watch all the action LIVE on Horse & Country (7-8 July).
World number one
We are streaming all three phases of the CIC3* Event Riders Masters (ERM), which looks to be the most competitive leg in the series yet.
There is an incredible nine former ERM winners entered, including world number one and two, Oliver Townend and Gemma Tattersall.
There are also some big names fighting for a first ERM victory. Ones to watch are Sir Mark Todd, William Fox-Pitt and on-form Jonelle Price – who has won both Badminton and Luhmuhlen in the past couple of months.
Martyn Johnson, event director of St James’s Place Barbury, said: “I’m delighted with the entries, which include CCI4* winners, CCI3* winners and lots of contenders for the World Equestrian Games in September (WEG). Several leading nations are using Barbury as a WEG trial, which is a great compliment to the event.”
With so many top riders vying for the top spot, this is one event you don’t want to miss. Horse & Country is streaming the competition – from start to finish – so you won’t have to.
We are also showing highlights from Barbury in Event Rider Masters 2018: Barbury Castle on 16 July at 9pm.
If all that isn’t enough, we are taking you behind the scenes in Rudall’s Round-Up on 16 July at 7.30pm. Jenny will bring you exclusive footage of all the fun and fabulous activities that go on alongside the eventing.
She will also be catching up with some of the riders, such as up-and-coming talent Flora Harris who rides for Vardags Equestrian.
Rudall’s Round-Up is sponsored by family law firm Vardags, whose founder Ayesha Vardag is a passionate rider and owner.
