Horse and Country (H&C) is an equestrian sports digital media company.


H&C was on satellite television on Sky channel 184 in the United Kingdom (UK) and is also available on Amazon Prime Video in UK & Germany and on Roku, as well as via web and mobile apps. It launched on Virgin Media Channel 298 on 21 July 2018.[1] H&C launched to cable TV viewers in the Netherlands in June 2012.[2] In June 2013 H&C launched in Sweden.[3] In February 2015, H&C launched in Australia on Fetch TV.[4] H&C launched in the US and Canada in May 2018 on Roku.[5] H&C formed a partnership with Digital Cornucopia to enter Spain, Portugal, and Latin America in 2018.[6]

Removal from Sky

In December 2019, H&C announced they would be closing on Sky channel 184. The move means that as of 31 January 2020, H&C will be available to view through H&C's online services, apps and other 3rd party distributors.[7] It continued to be available on Virgin Media in Ireland and the UK until it was removed on 20 July 2020.

Partnering with EQ Sports Net

In January 2020, H&C announced its acquisition of the dominant US equestrian streaming provider, EQ Sports Net (EQSN). In addition to live sports programming, EQSN subscribers will now also have access to H&C TV's library. H&C TV covers the Rolex Grand Slam of Showjumping, the Longines Lumühlen Horse Trials, and the London International Horse Show from Olympia.[8]

Programming & production

In 2012, H&C commissioned the series Getting to Greenwich, an 8-part series profiling rider contenders for London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics. H&C also commissioned Dean Dibsdall: Model Farrier, a single film about the winner of E4's Playing It Straight 2012. H&C produced in-house "Carl and Charlotte: Dressage Superstars" a 2-part series about top British Dressage riders, Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin. In 2016, H&C acquired the syndicated series Walks Around Britain, featuring seasons one & two. Season three was released on the platform just one year later, back in May 2017.[9]

2010 restructuring

In October 2010, Horse & Country TV was placed into administration by Chairman Heather Killen, who called in a £400,000 preferential loan on her own company, the day before a dismissal claim by former Managing Director Nick Ludlow was due to be heard in court. Mr. Ludlow had been fired by Ms. Killen just seven days after she finalized a successful takeover deal for the television channel, and had claimed that his 47% stake was watered down to just 16% in a share issue in November 2009. The move forced Mr. Ludlow to drop his legal action and caused investors in the channel to write off £200,000 following the collapse. Within months, Ms. Killen had relaunched the company as H&C TV. The new firm secured a global rights deal to highlights from the Badminton trials, ending a 50-year exclusive arrangement with the BBC to cover the event.[10][11][12]
