Badminton Review DVD 2014 Was £12.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99
Eighty three combinations from fourteen Nations contested the 2014 running of the Mitsubishi Motors Badminton Horse Trials with five previous winners in the line-up. The main talking point was new course designer Giseppe Della Chiesa's cross country test which had "big" written all over it. Most riders and pundits were very complimentary after walking it as innovation had been well balanced with tradition to provide a very imposing but fair test. However after overnight rain two jumping efforts were taken out leaving thirty numbered fences and forty one jumping efforts but few could have foreseen how influencial the cross country would be on the final outcome as wind rain and testing underfoot conditions all played their part in adding to the fearsome jumping test . Comprehensive cross country coverage is sandwiched between the best of the dressage and an extraordinary showjumping finale that made this a Badminton that will be talked about for many years to come.
With 3rd placed Harry Meade in the expert commentator's chair this 2 hour programme is a comprehensive review of this thrilling event and a must for all eventing enthusiasts.

Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games 2014 Normandy Dressage Was £28.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99 All 3 competitions are covered in detail with 50 minutes of each devoted to the Team Competition (Grand Prix) and the Individual titles in the Grand Prix Special and the Kür.
In the Team Competition Germany's all round performance proved too much for the British and Dutch teams, even though British Dressage wonders Valegro and Charlotte Dujardin hauled the team up to second, just ahead of the Dutch, with a test that was the best on every one of the 7 judge's scorecards and she then went on to dominate the Grand Prix Special and the Kür to hold every possible title at the same time in International dressage.

Burghley Horse Trials 2013 Was £16.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99 This year's big question centred on how 67 partnerships from 11 countries would manage the newly designed 'Start and Finish' of Captain Mark Phillips' cross country test: in particular the intensity of the first five minutes. In the dressage phase it was Jonathan 'Jock' Paget and Clifton Promise who set the pace, with Ingrid Klimke with FRH Butts Abraxxas on their Burghley debut attracting less than 40 penalty points. William Fox-Pitt in fourth place, led the British challenge on his 2011 Burghley Champion Parkland Hawk. The final day brought early disappointment for Jonathan Paget having to withdraw but with one showjumping fence in hand over both Andrew Nicholson and William Fox-Pitt, the overnight leaders still had the chance to emulate Ginny Leng and Master Craftsman, the last horse and rider partnership 24 years earlier in 1989 to win both Badminton and Burghley in the same season.

FEI World Cup Jumping 2012 Was £21.99 now £4.99 Price: £4.99 For the first time in 25 years an American rider triumphed in the Rolex FEI World Cup final as 52 year old Rich Fellers riding the 16yr old Irish bred Flexible, the oldest and smallest horse in the competition, won this prestigious title. This amazing combination forced a jump off with the Swiss rider Steve Guerdat riding the scopey Nino Des Buissonnets after three horses tied going into the fourth and final leg. Flexibles winning clear round on that final afternoon drew a standing ovation from the appreciative Dutch crowd who knew they had witnessed something special.
Flexible is described by Fellers as a family pet and has twice come back from serious injury proving that certain jumpers get better with age; the longevity of the partnership also proved crucial in such a pressurised finale.
