Olympic Equestrian Games: TV Schedule!



It is extremely frustrating having to wait and watch in order to learn when the Equestrian Games will be featured on TV. The previous Summer Olympics had sparse coverage as far as I was concerned.

However I was lucky enough to find an extended schedule posted on the Internet. Some of the channels have not been announced, and if anyone reading this can leave a comment with the missing information, it would be highly appreciated.

Here is the schedule for those folks who are chomping at the bit to watch. You can set your DVR recorders in a few days, in order not to miss any of the events.

Thank you, Thank you. I so appreciate having this schedule. I won't have to wait and wonder when I can see the equestrian this time. I just love all the events and have missed most of them over the years bacause I guess the networks think they are boring. They couldn't be more wrong. Thanks again. Julia

Fan-tas-tic! Thanks a million for this Jo. Up til now there was very little coverage of dressage. Most coverage being just a taste of cross country with the majority being focused on the stadium jumping. Margie
