Rio Olympics 2016 Equestrian coverage guide

The highly anticipated Rio 2016 Olympic games is nearly upon us, with 16 days of what promises to be a sensational showcase of sporting talent, from 205 different nations. The games will commence on Friday the 5th of August with a vibrant and electrifying opening ceremony, which will certainly exhilarate everybody’s taste buds for Olympic fever to take hold once again. The BBC will be broadcasting live every day on BBC1 and BBC 4, from 1pm to 3am as well as their being up to 24 live Olympic channels on the BBC sport website and BBC red button. The four-hour time difference from Rio to Britain means that a lot of the coverage will be continuing into the early hours of the morning, not something that particularly aligns with an equestrian lifestyle. The BBC1 morning show will provide a catch up show and BBC2 will replay last night’s coverage in full every morning. We have also compiled a schedule of the Rio 2016 Equestrian coverage, to ensure you don’t miss a hoof beat of the excitement.
