Leading international equestrian sports network Horse & Country (H&C) today announced details of extensive and exclusive multi-year partnerships with two of the world’s 5-Star three-day events; The Adelaide Equestrian Festival and The Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials.

The Adelaide Equestrian Festival is Australia’s premier equestrian sports event. It’s

the only 5-Star held in Australia, the only one held in Asia Pacific, and the only one

held in a city centre, offering a truly unique viewing experience. In 2024 it runs from

April 18th to April 21st and members of H&C’s streaming service, H&C+, will be able

to watch exclusive coverage of all the action from all three phases with commentary

from H&C favourite Spencer Sturmey.

In addition to the 5-Star, Adelaide also runs 3-Star and 4-Star events which will also

be live-streamed on H&C+. Viewers will be able to enjoy the Cross Country and

Showjumping from the 3-Star, and every phase of the 4-Star. There’s also more

eventing from Australia to enjoy later in the year including the Melbourne

International and The Sydney International.

The Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials runs from June 13th to June 16th this year and

is Germany’s premier three-day event. As with Adelaide, H&C will cover all three

phases with Spencer Sturmey again providing the English commentary. German

viewers can look forward to local language commentary from Dirk Alexander Lude, a

well-known voice to German fans of horse sport.

There’s an additional treat from Luhmühlen with full coverage of the 4-Star event

which runs in tandem with the 5-Star and is the official German Eventing

Championship. Overall, there’ll be an extra edge to Luhmühlen in 2024 as it’s the

final 5-Star before the Paris Olympics and the last opportunity to check out the form


In addition to the 5-Stars, H&C+ members can look forward to a feast of eventing in

2024 starting with the UK season curtain raiser at Thoresby, with Aston le Walls,

Burnham Market, Chatsworth, Belsay, Bramham, Hartpury, and Blenheim to follow.

Annual membership of H&C+ is only A$124.99 as a one-off payment, or there’s an

option to pay in 12 monthly instalments of A$14.99. And non-members who wish to

watch can choose H&C’s Freestyle option and buy a pass for each event for just


Commenting for H&C, Director of Content Jonathan Rippon said, “I am delighted to

announce our exclusive live coverage of these hugely prestigious events, two of only

seven 5-Stars in the world. We’ve developed great relationships with both

organisations over the last few years and these new multi-year partnerships are

further proof of H&C’s position as the Home of Eventing.”

For Adelaide, Festival Director Kirsty Withers said, “One of our festival's unique

strengths lies in the challenge of hosting three disciplines in the heart of a major city.

The breathtaking parklands surrounding the Adelaide CBD provide an unparalleled

backdrop, making this event truly one-of-a-kind. We feel blessed to have access to

such a remarkable venue and take immense pride in presenting it to a global

audience via Horse & Country for all equine enthusiasts to enjoy.”

For Luhmühlen, Event Organiser Julia Otto said, “We are delighted to continue

working with Horse & Country as our streaming partner. This partnership is already

well established and very familiar to eventing fans around the world. It is of huge

benefit to the Longines Luhmühlen Horse Trials that Horse & Country will stream the

sport coverage internationally, as this is key to both our sponsorship partners and

fans, especially if they aren’t able to attend in person.”

To watch all H&C’s live eventing coverage, make sure you are signed up to

H&C+. Members can watch online or with H&C’s mobile apps, as well as on Roku,

Apple TV, Android TV, and Amazon Fire. Both H&C+ members and Freestyle pass
