Rolex Tapes

Arlene Osborne asked me about how to get a copy of the Rolex tapes. I
figured someone else might be interested, so here goes. The tapes are
available from the Kentucky Educational Television Network. They have
copies of every year from 1982 through this year available. 1982 through
1988 cost $29.95; 1989 is $39.95; 1990 is $49.95; 1991 is $59.95; This
year's tape is $79.95. If you order all the tapes from 1982 through
1991, they give you the 1992 tape for free! Anyway, to order a tape,
call 1-800-354-9067 and tell them you want the "Kentucky: The Ultimate
Equestrian Event" tape for year x. Enjoy!

For those who don't want to spend the money, check with your local public
TV station.  Ours just showed this years Rolex yesterday afternoon.  It
was interesting but not nearly as much fun or as exciting as watching it
in person.  One thing I did notice, they showed the riders out of sequence.
And ***'s Leap looks much less impressive on TV than it does in person.
They do show Stephen Bradley's *** fall at the Leap very clearly, I
thought he had fallen on his neck but he got dropped right on his back.
Poor horse was really shook and shocky when they got him on his feet.
It is a neat tape to watch, though.
Ah, well, I'll be there next year.

Last fall, we had the members of our Combined Training Club call
the local Public TV station and they actually aired it because
of the viewer requests. Make sure you ask for the complete name of the
tape which includes the words "the ultimate equestrian experience" or something
like that. (see one of the earlier posts)

The full and formal title is "Kentucky: The Ultimate Equestrian Event".
Good luck with getting your local PBS stations to broadcast it. We
tried for years her in South Carolina to get SCETV to broadcast it
without any luck (we had a couple of hundred people call one year and
they didn't even bother to save it off of the satelite, nevermind
broadcast it !!!!!!) The really funny thing is, this year I got a copy by
having the communications center folks here at the university grab it
directly off of the satelite for me and they told me that it was South
Carolina who was doing to upload to the satelite !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Go figure!

p.s. I don't mean to discourage anyone ... it can't hurt to call and
     ask!
