She has been commentating on horse sport since she retired from competing and has worked at numerous Olympics, including last year in Tokyo.

    John Kyle is a professional commentator who works year-round commentating on the Olympic equestrian disciplines. He has recently fronted the commentary for the livestreams from Burghley Horse Trials, as well as Badminton Horse Trials in May, and he has worked at the past three Olympic Games, as well as two Paralympics.
