Today (Thursday 31 October) is your final chance to send in stories for inclusion for our reader issue (out on 19 December), as the deadline is midnight tonight.

This is your opportunity to feature in H&H and we’re looking for your submissions in categories such as personal firsts, beating the odds, new horse diaries and picture of the year.

Free subscriptions and at home photoshoots are on offer for the best entries.

In addition, our readers will be choosing our cover star for this issue by voting for their “horse for the year”.

Visit www.horseandhound.co.uk/readerissue2013 for how to vote and send in your story — but hurry, the deadline is midnight tonight.
