please please stop mucking up the showjumping. The 6 bar competition went to adverts before it had finished. Your coverage is rarely on time

This is a message to the producers of the Olympia Show Jumping programmes on Eurosport. Would you please see that it gets to the right person. Whilst I am very happy with the amount of coverage of this show, except for the delayed showing of the World Cup qualifier I find some aspects extremely amateurish. The incident that has prompted me to comment and has left me very angry is the showing of the 6-bar competition on Saturday night. This competition was almost at an end and was reaching a nail biting climax with the last rider to go when suddenly it was cut short and went to the adverts. After the adverts Olympia were preparing for the next competition, The Ivy Stakes. The end of the 6-bar was missed out completely. This has left your viewers completely non-plussed and very frustrated. On top of this your commentators had announced earler in the week that the World Cup Qualifier would not be shown until a later date. Unbelievably one of your commentators gave away the winner of this competition and also information on how some of the other competitors had fared. This is so amateurish and would not happen with the BBC or ITV. At least they give warning before announcing football results on the news scheduled before the highlights programme. Eurosport need to pull their socks up!!
Coverage is not good this year! Way to many advert breaks and all at the wrong time. As mentioned above, the Six Bar competition went to adverts before it finished so we didn't even get to see who won and in the Christmas Masters, one of the rounds went to adverts and we missed seeing Scott Brash take on the fences. Not impressed. Please cut the ads, and cover Olympia more!! We want to watch the whole competitor, not bits & bobs of it.
I really shouldn't have to go online to find out if the last competitor cleared the course or not. Do u not have any control about when u go to ad break?! Another 30 seconds would have been enough. Ridiculous, never seen such bad programming in my life. Sort it out please.
