Wellington, FL – June 20, 2011 – Dressage specialist and six-time Olympian Robert Dover, host of the popular Dover’s World radio program, will devote an upcoming show to current issues in the hunter industry. Airing Tuesday, June 21, 2011, on WBZT (AM1230 in the Palm Beaches) at 6pm EST, the show will hunt for the most important hunter-related issues in the ever-changing world of equestrian sport.
From pony hunters to hunter derbies, the wide range of potential topics offers listeners a great chance to call in and voice their opinion. In addition, those who tune in Tuesday night will also have the chance to hear insightful commentary from knowledgeable panelists. Peter Pletcher, Kim Stewart, Richard Slocum, and another authority (TBA) will all lend their considerable expertise to the program.
Having already devoted shows to the jumper industry and eventing, Dover’s hunter-focused session will examine the future of hunters as well as their past. “The show will raise many questions about the direction in which the industry is going,” noted Dover. “Is the sport better or worse than it was in previous years?” The use of calming agents vs. other methods of controlling a horse’s behavior, the influence of derbies, evolving expectations of horses and riders – Dover says there is no limit to the discussions that will animate the airwaves Tuesday night.
A three-time World Champion Hunter Rider, Peter Pletcher will bring a wealth of hunter knowledge to Dover’s World on Tuesday. He has won championships at some of the nation’s most prestigious shows, including Devon, Harrisburg, and the Winter Equestrian Festival, among many notable others. Kim Stewart and Richard Slocum are also highly accomplished in the world of hunters, having guided many riders successfully through the discipline’s most elite levels. All panelists urge listeners to participate in this open, respectful dialogue Tuesday night.
This special hunter industry show of Dover’s World will kick off at 6pm EST and will air until 8pm. Listeners are invited to call-in by dialing 561-844-6167, or call toll-free from anywhere by dialing 1-800-889-0267.
