Plan where to watch

Plan where to watch, find your way around the course using the high resolution satellite imagery, then stand at a jump and listen to the commentary on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, as you would an audio tour in an art gallery. If you hear that horse and rider have had a problem at a jump, they can click on the map to see the jump from different angles and learn why it might have happened. Or check the fence analysis after the comptetition and look at the jumps that caused problems.

  • Tap a jump on the map
  • Swipe through jumps
  • Swipe through photos and videos
  • Double tap to view full screen (rotate the screen to portrait/landscape as you wish before expanding to full screen)
