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.
