Show Director, Simon Brooks-Ward said: “We are delighted to be able to extend the reach of the action taking place at The London International Horse Show 2022 beyond the spectators onsite at ExCeL London. Being able to broadcast some of the most popular classes on the BBC, providing free-to-view coverage across the UK, is invaluable to the Show and the wider sport as a whole. We are expecting the competition to be better than ever, providing viewers with exceptional entertainment from wherever they are in the world.”
