Horse & Country TV is pleased to announce a partnership with the MARS Great Meadow International (MARSGMI) to provide live and on-demand coverage of the 2020 event. The competition will be held at Great Meadow in The Plains, Virginia August 19 to 23 and will feature many of North America’s best eventing combinations.

Horse & Country TV will provide coverage of all three phases of the CCI4*-S and the show jumping and cross-country of the CCI3*-L, CCI3*-S, CCI2*-S, and Preliminary horse trials, with all covered rides available to watch on-demand in Horse & Country TV’s robust video library.

“We are extremely excited to build on the MARSGMI partnership that was forged last year with EQSportsNet and to add this prestigious competition to H&C’s already extensive library,” said Horse & Country TV’s David Qualls. “We look forward to showcasing many of North America’s top horses and riders with a television-quality production.”

"We are very pleased to have the Horse & Country team join us again this year to produce the live stream. They have been part of the MARSGMI family since 2019 and now, more than ever, it's important to have trusted partners at our side as we navigate the complicated COVID-19 climate,” said MARSGMI co-organizer and cross-country course designer David O’Connor. “With the options for viewing the event in person quite limited, we are relying on the ability to share the competition online. It'll be the next best thing to being there!"
