The popular Red Hills Horse Trials, which took place last month at Tallahassee, FL, will be broadcast on Comcast Sports Southeast (CSS) television next week. The 60-minute program, which features dressage, cross-country and show jumping, can be seen in 11 Southeast states on April 25 at 10 p.m. and April 26 at 3:30 p.m.

The show, which was produced by Charles Belvin and hosted by local TV personality, Anna Johnson, with color commentary by eventing expert, Roger Haller, will also be aired in five slots daily for 10 days in April and on May 1 on Comcast 16 in the Tallahassee region. In addition, plans are being made to air the show on WCTV (CBS affiliate); WCOT (City of Tallahassee Channel) and with HorseTV.

Organizers Sallie Ausley and Sylvia Ochs are delighted to have attracted TV coverage of the event for the third year, which speaks to the increasing success of the show that was enjoyed by record crowds in excess of 40,000 at the Eleanor Klapp-Phipps Park, March 11-13.

Approximately eight million viewers in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Arizona, Kentucky, Virginia, West Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee watch Comcast Sports Southeast.
