In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, out on Thursday 22 March 2018, don’t miss our ‘Dressage special’ issue — we visit Carl Hester and Charlotte Dujardin at home, plus how to ride “long and low” and much more. Check out our full report from the Cheltenham Festival, including in-depth analysis from the big races, expert comments and pictures. In this week’s ‘Vet clinic’, we discuss moody mares and if it really is all down to hormones, plus don’t miss our snow gallery and many more interesting features. We also have reports from all the hunting, showjumping, dressage and showing action during the weekend.
