November 11, 2013 - Horse & Country TV, the specialist international equestrian sports and lifestyle network, is pleased to announce it will produce a number of exclusive shows with the renowned Swedish horse artiste, Tobbe Larsson.
Tobbe will feature in his own episodes of H&C TV’s Yard Talk and Masterclass series, which will premiere in early December. Later, H&C TV will follow Tobbe to Dubai, where he will be filmed working with local riders and their horses, both at the races and in the showjumping arena.
Tobbe Larsson is a household name in Sweden and many parts of the world through his tours with the show Apassionata, his hugely popular TV shows as well as his clinics. The last clinic was held in Borås, Sweden, with a sold-out show and an audience of 2,000 guests.
Tobbe is the latest equestrian star to join the line-up of talent on H&C TV that includes Monty Roberts, Pat and Linda Parelli and Carl Hester.
Speaking of the new relationship, Tobbe Larsson said: “It’s exciting to work with a new equestrian channel, which is exactly what Sweden has been waiting for. I’m also looking forward to the opportunity to have access to H&C TV’s established international network, in the UK, Ireland and the Netherlands, to promote our way of working with horses here in Sweden to the wider world.”
Head of Programming for H&C TV, Jonathan Rippon, said: “It’s an honour for H&C TV to work with an established TV star such as Tobbe. Tobbe represents an exceptional talent, not only in his way with horses, but also by virtue of his natural and engaging on-screen persona. We hope to be able to bring our audience more of Tobbe’s tips and insights as our channel develops.”
Horse & Country TV began service in Com Hem’s new Tivo Large and Tivo Extra Large packages, and à la carte, on October 31.
