Organisers of the Alltech FEI European Jumping and Dressage Championships 2009 are set to launch a Championship radio station dedicated to the event.
Championship followers will be able to listen to live expert commentary for all of the dressage competition and some of the jumping competitions. In addition, the channel will be packed with live rider interviews, backstage stories and expert views of the championships.
Visitors to the event can purchase one of the special headsets from the radio or programme sellers in the showground for just £8 to last them the duration of the event. Alternatively, those who are unable to get to Windsor won’t miss out on any of the action, as they can listen to the station over the internet by visiting www.alltechfeiwindsoreuopeans.com
The commentary team for the jumping classes will be led by Steven Wilde. Steven is a regular presenter for Sky Sport, Eurosport and Horse and Country TV and a familiar voice on many show grounds around the country.
The classes that will be covered by the radio service are:
Friday 28th August Jumping Team Final and Individual 8.30am – 5pm
