They didn't show the Shetland Derby, for a start, which is, of course, one of my favourite parts; nor any of the evening events. This was because Sky bought all the showing rights to Olympia, and were showing it on sports channels; therefore were not interested in putting on anything but the actual showjumping, puissance, etc. As it is the highlight of my christmas I was very disappointed.

There is just not enough horse events on the TV. Considering the amount of money we owners put into the equine buisness, farriers, vets, dentist, feed merchants, shows etc you would think as a sport we could have some decent TV coverage of more events. Not just the odd cross country or show jumping.
