Tokyo Takeaways, Dutton’s Diaries and Torchbearer Campaign mark StreamHorseTV’s celebration of Tokyo Olympics Equestrian Action
StreamHorseTV will be celebrating the equestrian competition at the 2021 Tokyo Olympic Games through dedicated editorial programming aimed at building an enthusiastic community of digitally engaged fans around these games in the absence of spectators, while the athletes compete without family members by their sides. Tokyo Takeaways, Dutton’s Diaries, and our Torchbearer Campaign will serve the equine sports space by providing avenues of involvement, no matter your location.
Tokyo Takeways is an Olympics Debrief in conversation with Catie Staszak, Longines FEI Jumping World Cup commentator and CEO of Catie Staszak Media, providing insight and stories across the equine disciplines.
This pre-recorded video program features discussion on how the games are shaping up for the human and equine athletes in each equestrian category, as Staszak provides commentary on the show ring, and stories from the stable area. Find out who’s hitting or missing the mark by tuning into Tokyo Takeaways on StreamHorseTV.
Dutton’s Diaries is a series of audio diaries coming straight out of Tokyo, via none other than Team USA’s eldest member. Competing in his seventh Olympics, veteran eventer and multiple Olympic medalist Phillip Dutton takes us behind the scenes of the equestrian happenings on the ground, sharing his thoughts on the facilities, conditions, competition, the absence of spectators, and stories of his experience at these games. Catch all of Phillip’s updates by listening into Dutton’s Diaries on StreamHorseTV.
Natalie Mayrath of StreamHorseTV is grateful for the opportunity to engage our community of horse enthusiasts as our humans and horses compete on the world’s grandest stage, where history is made. “Now more than ever, we need fan engagement, and a place to feel like we are part of the action. Having Catie’s commentary as an expert – but also a cheering fan – and hearing Phillip’s voice directly from the ground, are both a privilege and a pleasure. We wish all of the equestrian competitors a safe, successful ride during these games, and hope we can make a difference by sparking conversation around their tremendous efforts,” she said.
