The Burghley coverage will kick-off EEP's enhanced web channel, home to a growing library of premium original equestrian multimedia content. Following the special Burghley live streaming, viewers will be able to purchase and download a series of highlight segments from the event.

"This coverage of Burghley gives equestrian sport a rich online media experience approaching those of other sports like golf and football," EEP President and Executive Producer Dana Voorhees said.

Other content available on the website includes virtual clinics and course walks, tips from the pros, exclusive interviews and event highlights. Although initially focusing primarily on eventing, EEP plans to expand the library to include content from a variety of English and Western disciplines.

Enthusiasts can also purchase DVD products from the online store, including a DVD of the 2006 Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, available later this year.
