The eight finalists attended the programme’s premiere in Cheltenham, along with sponsors of the show, the H&C team, producer and TV presenter Lizzie Greenwood-Hughes and a number of special guests.

Last year’s winner Rhi Lee-Jones was also there to interview the contestants and find out more about their experience at the boot camp at Talland School of Equitation. We will post more videos here next week, so keep your eye out on Facebook and Twitter.
