About the Show
Created by the Irish data scientists Sam Watson & Diarm Byrne, and hosted by the sparkling, up-and-coming voice on eventing, Nicole Brown, the Eventing Podcast is a light-hearted look at what the stats are telling us before and after the major international events. Jenni Autry adds the US razzmatazz and picks the winners.
Episodes are concise, sporadically uploaded, and have everything from in-depth dressage scoring reviews to pop-quizzes on rider’s lives. It IS for people who like showing off with one-line pieces of eventing trivia. It probably isn’t for the easily offended.
About the Hosts
Nicole Brown is a well-known controller and commentator at BE National events and in 2016, broke into international eventing commentary with the Event Rider Masters series and then with the BBC at Burghley. Nicole is a self-confessed eventing nerd and when not working, she sits in a corner working out top 10 percentages.
Sam Watson is an Irish international event rider who has studied maths, statistics and databases for nearly 15 years. In December 2014, he founded EquiRatings with long-time friend Diarm Byrne and turned his love of numbers and horses into an award-winning business. When he is not on a horse, or deep in database coding, he practices impressions of riders.
Diarm Byrne is a former lawyer who joined forces with Sam in 2014 having spent years listening to him preparing the numbers on horses and riders. In 2015, he was shortlisted as ‘Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur’. When he isn’t running the EquiRatings offices, he is thinking about Liverpool. Or cats.
Jenni Autry is the managing editor of Eventing Nation. When she is not working on the latest eventing scoop at EN, or digging for EquiRatings or working with Phillip Dutton (busy lady), she is riding Mia/taking photos of Mia/thinking about Mia, her OTTB mare. She loves her cats and Josh equally.
