Television and Horses

This is a page for info on the Cable and Commercial Television industry (including Statellite TV services) in regard to the equine industry.


The highlights of the 2006 World Equestrian Games held in early August, 2006 will be broadcast on NBC commercial TV on Sunday, September 24, 2006--start mid to late afternoon; check local listings.  Should start 3pm in Central Time Zone of North America.





Yearling sales started live on Horse Racing TV on cable.

See some of the top Thoroughbred prospects available in the U.S. live from Kentucky during the week of 9-11-06.




RFD-TV reruns the Eventing series by the Top U.S. team

Eventing in the U.S. is documented in several shows on a series on RFD-TV that follows the O'Connor eventing team through teaching, training, schooling at shows and showing at top Events in the U.S.

Very educational, instructive and including top video clips of all phases.

First aired in mid-2006.







Animal Planet is offering some interesting equine shows during the month of February, 2006.  A new series called Horsepower is going to track four junior riders in their quest to win the Maclay Medal Finals this fall.  Series Starts Wed. Feb. 1, 2006 at 8pm ET.

AP is additionally airing a Sporthorse Open Jumping competition on Wednesday, Feb. 8th at 8pm ET.

For those into aesthetic inspiration of horses, several noteables in the music industry share their feelings for horses and how they relate to their music, other artistic endeavors  and life generally on TrailMix on Sunday, January 29 at 8pm ET.  Check local listings for time.


NOTE: the Equitation series was very good, and worth a see.  Some of the graphics more appealing to "horse crazy" teens, however basic information very good, and shows the competition in a very fair light.

An excellent opportunity to see the top equitation riders in the United States "if you cannot make the show"!





The Rural network  is re-airing the Eventing series that features Gold Medalist David and Karen O’Conner and several of their students at major eventing competitions on the East Coast.

Dressage Unlimited continues their programming—last month included a special on the Oldenburg inspections for mares and foals at Woodbridge Farm.

Unfortunately, it seems that the USDF series is not continuing at this time.

However, RFD broadcast several western competitions in their entirety—including the 2005 National Cutting Horse Futurity finals the day after the actual date of competition from Fort Worth, Texas.

This complements an already excellent group of programs from trainers such as Parellis, C. Anderson,  Craig Cameron, Lynn Palm and others.

 One program that is very interesting in content is titled “Heroes”.    It features three-four very well-known and successful reining/working cow horse trainers that discuss their training methods and philosophies, then demonstrate their methods and thought processes during schooling similar horses.  Very informative.


The series continues to be informative and educational in all phases of equestrian activities.





ESPN, the cable TV's  flagship sports network, continues extensive Throroughbred racing coverage, the weekly "Wire-to-Wire" show that covers the weeks highlights of Thoroughbred and American Quarterhorse racing. The AQHA weekly series of "America's Horse" may be on in some areas, tho in my area, TVG is continuing this series, which used to be on ESPN.





TVG continues its nearly 24/7 live and taped broadcasts of racing from all over the world.  Includes some breed specific racing such as AQHA (quarterhorse), APHA (Paint) and Arabian.

Includes the current and "Classic" series of "America's Horse", the AQHA educational and informational series on the American Quarter Horse.
