Global equestrian sports network Horse & Country (H&C) and international lifestyle magazine Equestrian Living have announced a content partnership that will see H&C produce video profiles to accompany and enhance Equestrian Living editorial. The first project under this new arrangement features world-renowned Argentinian polo player, and the face of Ralph Lauren Polo for 20 years, Nacho Figueras, and his close friend, architect Nacho Ramos.
Equestrian Living features personal tours inside amazing homes and barns. Readers get to meet some of the most exciting equestrians in the world as well as enjoy a compelling mix of fashion, the arts, design, style, and sport. Going forward, the partnership will see H&C produce video profiles to accompany articles in the magazine under the H&C programming brand, Barn Talk. Each Barn Talk episode will be available on Equestrian Living’s website, accompanying the feature, while an extended version will be available on demand to members of H&C’s streaming service, H&C+.
The first such video profile features Nacho Figueras and Nacho Ramos and focuses on their long-term friendship built around their shared passion for architecture, design, horses, and polo. The pair talk about how these common interests led to the creation of Figueras Design Group and how they intend to push the boundaries in equestrian living and architecture, a goal very much reflected in the beautiful home that Ramos designed for Figueras and his family, as well as in the breathtaking Figueras polo stable.
Jonathan Rippon, Director of Content for H&C said, “We are delighted to be working with the team at Equestrian Living. It’s part of our DNA at H&C to go beyond sport and bring our members real insight and access to the fascinating personalities that so define the equestrian world. Our partnership with Equestrian Living takes ‘behind the scenes’ to the next level.”
"At EQ Living, we deliver compelling, high-quality, design-focused content," said C. Wynn Medinger, publisher of Equestrian Living. "We are pleased to embark on this exciting new collaboration with Horse & Country. Enhancing our interviews and home and barn tours with video content will afford our readers an expanded and richer view of our featured equestrians.”

and H&C+ members can see the extended version in the Documentary section of the service.
