A BHS Guide to the Olympics

23 July 2021

After a year’s wait, tonight we finally get to watch the opening ceremonies of the delayed 2020 Tokyo Olympics. To help you plan your viewing for the games, we have a quick guide to all things equestrian

The equestrian events run throughout the games, starting with the dressage team and individual competitions, followed by eventing, and then the jumping events taking us right up to the penultimate day of the games.

And if that’s not enough equestrian sport for you, the Paralympics start on Tuesday 23 August, with equestrian events running from Wednesday 24 August to Monday 31 August.

Keep an eye on our website and social media channels over the next few weeks for a range of Olympic- and Paralympic-related features and news
