Equestrian Eventing With Bryant Gumbel: Don't Miss This!
While the Cross Country segment of Three Day Eventing competition is considered to be breathtakingly exciting, in my opinion it is a grueling and arduous test for a horse which I feel borders on insanity. Unlike the Stadium Jumping segment of this equine Triathalon, where imposing obstacles collapse easily, cross country jumping's "natural"appearing obstacles are dense and in most cases do not fall if impacted by a horse on course.
Bryant Gumbel's "Real Sports" edition for Tuesday, July 29, will feature a segment about the risks of equestrian Eventing.
Judging from past editions which Mr. Gumbel presented about the equine industry, I imagine that this will also be an in depth examination of the pit falls and dangers of the sport.
The program will be aired on HBO on at 10:00 PM ET on July 29. I can't wait to see what the show will cover.
Watch your schedules as "Real Sports" is repeated frequently throughout the week.
