Make a note in your diary – this week’s Horse & Hound (Thursday 23 February) is our unmissable show number.

With more than 200 pages, including extensive show listings from around the country, this bumper issue is your essential guide to the season.

We uncover what’s new for 2012 and reveal how and where you can get free training. There’s an exclusive at-home interview with showjumping star Shane Breen, a feature saluting the supergrooms of the horseworld and an informative look at the best horsey apps on the market.

On a lighter note, find out whether you can really save money by living on your lorry, why a top eventer throws his rosettes in the bin, plus we ask the burning question – have British riders gone soft?

All this plus more for the regular price of £2.60 means you can’t afford to miss next week’s Horse & Hound. And the digital version will be available to purchase online on Thursday in the Zinio Shop.
