Horse & Country to Livestream Major Jumping Classes From Longines International Jumping La Baule
Lexington, Ky. – Horse & Country (H&C), the leading international equestrian sports network, will offer extensive and exclusive live coverage from the upcoming Longines International Jumping La Baule on its streaming service, H&C+. The stream will be available worldwide from June 10-13, 2021, excluding France.
Viewers will be able to watch a total of 15 classes across the CSI 1* and CSIO 5* events, including the prestigious Derby Région des Pays de la Loire on the afternoon of June 12. The Derby is the only class of its kind to take place within a CSIO 5* event. With its natural fences set against the backdrop of the spectacular grass arena of the François André Stadium, the Derby sets challenges reminiscent of the cross-country phase in eventing, as well as a traditional show jumping course.
