Advertising on H&C

You want everyone to see your great new video ad.  With a top rate per 30-second spot of just £24 on H&C TV, you can play it enough times to ensure it's seen by the majority of our viewers. For the same investment as a full page in one of the leading equestrian magazines, you can run your ad six times a day on H&C for two weeks. More favourable pricing applies for higher levels of investment, to make your budget go even further.

Below you'll find our rates per 30-second spot at various levels of investment. For those of you who sell in international markets, we've included rates for our channels in The Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and Australia.

The structure of your campaign depends on your objectives. Two new clothing or footwear ranges to launch this year?  Run a heavyweight burst of advertising in the spring and again in the autumn. Customers renewing their insurance premiums all year round?  Why not opt for a lower weight "drip" campaign to remind your customers and prospects you're always there for them…

Whatever your needs, our team can advise and help you make the most effective use of your budget. We also have a roster of trusted production partners who can produce great ads at budget levels that make sense for the equestrian sector. So why not join all these great brands and many others besides and put the power of TV to work for your business?

Other Opportunities

There are many other ways to reach H&C's audience besides spot advertising. Here are some of the most popular.

Sponsorship

All our programmes are available for sponsorship. Sponsor international or national events to reach riders from a specific discipline, or if you want to associate your brand with expertise and excellence, our H&C Masterclass series could be the perfect opportunity.

We can produce your sponsorship credit in-house at no additional cost. Find out more in our separate Sponsorship brochure or talk to our team, who will point you in the right direction.

Product Placement

Research shows product placement boosts both awareness and consideration and that positive feelings towards the show can rub off on featured brands. In our Blue Chip All Star Academy series all of these brands took product placement positions and benefited not just from the show itself but also from the extensive publicity and promotion that made it one of H&C's most popular series ever.

Blue Chip, Albion, Point Two Air Jackets, Absorbine, Euro-star, One-k Helmets, Horze, Easibed, KBF99, Bucas

Vet Essentials: Laminitis

AFPs

Advertiser Funded Programmes are created to complement your own marketing communications. Whilst they can't feature product promotion, they're a great way to build awareness and link your brand to specific ideas. We've worked with the BEF on Grassroots Dreams, a show that helped drive their participation agenda. With Boehringer Ingelheim and Zoetis we produced Vet Essentials, featuring specific conditions that their products treat. Talk to our team if there's a type of programme you’d like to see on screen.

Digital

As many people as watch H&C on TV also visit our website and social media, or watch us online. H&C offers banner and MPU advertising, pre-roll video, website takeovers, newsletter placements and more besides.

WeatherBeeta's campaign integrated heavyweight TV with a full range of digital activity for maximum amplification.
