Christmas is over and the weather is grim, but Horse & Country TV has got some great new shows in 2018 to brighten your day.

Olympia Horse Show

To keep that festive feeling going a little bit longer we are bringing Olympia Horse Show into your home on New Year’s Day, with Olympia 2017: Puissance (8pm), followed by Olympia 2017: Grand Prix (9pm). What better way to recover from the night before?

Daisy Dines with Nick Skelton

Brand new for 2018 is an exciting news series called Daisy Dines With… which sees Daisy Bunn, director of Hickstead, interview her famous friends. The first programme features Olympic gold medalist Nick Skelton, and we can’t wait to find out what they talk about.

Another new programme to look forward to is Equus Worldwide: India which takes viewers to Rajasthan, to find out more about Marwari horses. This rare breed is known for their distinctive ears, which turn inward at the tip.
