Annoyed with channel 4's coverage already :( Lee Pearson was next but one to go and they've gone to the cycling (fair enough as it's a medal chance), just hope we don't miss Lee's test. They need more channels, and a decent guide.

Bring back the BBC :(

Very frustrating, one test then more adverts :-(

What a lovely genuine horse, the beautiful grey with Jans from Norway (hope i got that right?)

I really want to see more of the riders. Understand it's not everyone's thing, so why isn't it available online like Beeb did for Olympics? Damn you Channel 4 telling me I'm in the wrong territory to see it. North London actually, not Northern Siberia.

The whole coverage of the Para Olympic is rubbish. More adverts than coverage.

it is like many things any para stuff is dealt with as second rate.

C4 just do not have the capabilities to do such a big event. I'm bored already and I was glued to my TV and Lap Top during the Olympics 2 weeks ago.

At least you had a reply, even if it is useless. They're still ignoring me.

Pretty annoyed - set Sky+ to do the session supposedly with dressage included (with judo) and surprise surprise no horse in sight - RUBBISH Channel 4! Just managed to watch the final competitor from Oz ...

:mad: Glad it's not just me, then...

Equestrian is scheduled on both C4 and More4 tomorrow, Friday, but I have little faith that is what will be delivered...!

the Official Olympics/Paralympics Results page is also 'playing up'

:cool:
I have posted the best links/info I can get
on both results and video/TV coverage
PLUS a link to the FEI page for all Paralympic DRESSAGE TESTS
on my Blog (link at bottom of this post)


let's hope it's less of a b*lls up tomorrow

:( (if all else fails the Olympic video links are still live at the moment - see Blog for details)

And BTW after 2 grade sessions completed...
  • not only is Lee leading Grade Ib
    but Natasha is also leading Grade II !!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you for all those links. I have watched quite abit of yesterday's reviews and no mention of dressage at all - although I MAY have missed a few seconds of the programmes ... ! Hope they start to take more notice when GB win medals!!!

I'm sorry, but I think the Channel 4 coverage has been pants all round, so far! There is too much talking and the coverage of events is so 'bitty' - you just get interested in something and it goes off! I did manage to catch Lee's performance, but that's about all!!

However, I think we were a bit spoilt by BBC's coverage, with the red button and all!!
