Every Horse & Hound reader can claim a free BSJA ticket, giving them the chance to enter an affiliated jumping competition, without becoming a fully paid-up member of the association, in the third Horse & Hound show special (4 March).

The issue is also packed with special features including interviews with up-and-coming event rider Bumble Thomas and dressage rider Wayne Channon and an investigation into why so many British-owned horses are being ridden by foreign competitors.

Horse & Hound also examines what constitutes a true “amateur”, asks if old-fashioned horsemanship is dying out in Britain, and what standards of veterinary care riders can expect to receive at competitions.

The final part of H&H’s essential show dates directory covers events taking place from August through to December, including contact telephone numbers, enabling competition riders to complete their plan for the rest of the 2004 season.

This bumper number also features all the regular news, reports and comments. Visit your local stockist today and ask for your copy of the final H&H show special to be put aside to ensure you don’t miss out.
