This will allow more listeners to make The Horse & Hound Podcast an essential part of their week on Friday morning. We would love to hear your feedback on this week’s episode, so please do send your thoughts to email@example.com
In episode five, our dressage editor Polly Bryan chats to British grand prix dressage rider, trainer and H&H columnist Anna Ross about how she got into the sport from a non-horsey background, the best advice she’s learnt along the way, which of her horses she spent more time running after than riding when he was young and the horses she’s excited about right now.
“Never get back on for a third time — if you’ve already fallen off it twice, don’t go back for more…” – Anna Ross
Our podcast host H&H’s magazine editor Pippa Roome chats to our news editor Eleanor Jones and senior news writer Lucy Elder about this week’s top stories including the possible reinstatement of the European showjumping championships and what’s happening in equestrian sport closer to home.
“Holding a Europeans next year would give national federations the chance to give new combinations championship experience when there isn’t Olympic qualifications up for grabs” – Eleanor Jones
We also hear from equine vet Ricky Farr MRCVS of Farr & Pursey Equine, who this week is talking about the ways to treat different types gastric ulcers and when vets can use treatment options that are not licenced for horses.
“It’s really important that the oral drugs are given on an empty stomach – if you’re sticking it in the front end and it’s coming straight out the back end because you’ve fed it with food, that’s a really expensive mistake to make” – Ricky Farr, MRCVS
We hope you will enjoy it.
