In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, out on Thursday 17 August 2017, don’t miss our 13-page preview on the forthcoming European Championships — we take a look at the ones to keep an eye on in the eventing, dressage, showjumping and para-dressage plus how to watch it and we outline the prospects for the Brits. We also speak to riders who have taken the DIY plunge and designed their own yards, plus Lucinda Green reveals her inspiration. Read all the showing and showjumping action from the Dublin Horse Show and in this week’s ‘Vet clinic’ we investigate whether horses can come back from “slipped hock” injuries, plus much more.
