Just wanted to announce that RFD-TV will be showing 3 WEF classes. The first, the $80,000 Adequan Grand Prix, will be Thursday night Aug 23 at 10 pm. The second will be the FTI $500,000 Finale class on Monday Aug 27 at 8 pm. The third, the $150,000 Wellington Equestrian Realty Grand Prix, will be Aug 30 (Thurs) at 10 pm. It will be exciting as we are showing some of the best horses and riders from all around the world who competed this year at WEF. This is our first foray into this level of show jumping and we would love your support so we can do more in the future. Please excuse the magic of editing where we have the starter horn and the announcer's intro 3 seconds before the first jump. If we did real time we wouldn't have been able to show as many riders as we were able to. We tried to appeal to both the novice as well as the seasoned fan so hope everyone enjoys. We really want to commit to showing jumpers on TV but we need viewers to make this happen. Thank you.

Reason: left 'EST' off times list
Right now as we are a cable TV network there are no plans to put it on the internet unfortunately. Maybe we can change that. RFD-TV is available on every major cable and satelite network--just depends on your area and your cable package. You can always call your provider and request RFD. We do have quite of bit of equine programming.
We added RFD recently to our cable package so I could watch horsey programming. Most of it is the same-old-same-old stuff, Parelli, Cameron, etc. SO EXCITED to see some jumping on RFD. Definitely tuning in.
Thank you all who watched last night! I know there were a few bugs and I realize the music was awful --concession to producer. Apparently you can't have complete silence on a show--TV rule.
Monday's show is really good! Better than last night's. We really appreciate your support and if we have enough viewers we will do more. And we will do it better in the future. You can always PM me with suggestions! We want this to work for all of us as fans of show jumping.
The $500,000 FTI Finale will be shown tonight on RFD-TV at 8 pm EST. It turned out well and is a very exciting class anyway. Thank you all for your support!
The last show scheduled will be this Thursday at 10 pm EST and will be the $150,000 class. It also turned out well and is a fun watch.
