Martha Terry

Features editor

A graduate from Cambridge University, Martha initially joined H&H as magazine assistant back in 2003, moving on to become eventing editor. She has worn many hats within the magazine since then, both freelance as a writer, and within the editorial team, where she is now features editor. She has also written features on equestrian and rural matters for publications such as Country Life, The Field, The Times, The Spectator and The Telegraph, and has covered everything from an exclusive on Tamarillo’s clone to reporting at the European Championships.

Born and raised in East Anglia, Martha has ridden since she was eight, initially with the Essex & Suffolk branch of the Pony Club and going on to event up to intermediate level. However, she currently has much less ambitious targets with her 18-year-old event mare, Fizz, and Irish Sports Horse who has bred two lovely foals now out on the eventing circuit.

Martha is also mad-keen on dogs of all shapes and sizes (but particularly springer spaniels) though with no competitive ambitions in this sphere whatsoever. After growing up with assorted liver and white springers, she enjoyed 14 years with two rescue dogs, one a street dog from Gambia who was abandoned at three weeks old. Now, her constant companion, whether by her feet at her desk or walking cross-country courses, is Fidget, an extremely energetic and habitually muddy black and white springer.
