The Horse & Hound Podcast: episode one – Lucinda Green | Vet advice: overweight horses | News round-up

  • Welcome to the launch of The Horse & Hound Podcast, our exciting new audio service available every Thursday for subscribers to our H&H Plus service, for which a free trial is available. Each week the podcast will be a hosted by a member of the H&H editorial team and include an interview with a top name and a panel discussion about the topics of the moment, plus expert advice from equine vet Ricky Farr MRCVS.

    We kick off this first episode of The Horse & Hound Podcast, hosted by magazine editor Pippa Roome, by speaking to eventing royalty Lucinda Green. Lucinda – as eloquent and amusing as ever – shares some strong views on her hopes and fears for the sport and how it has changed for the better and worse, including some amusing anecdotes along the way.

    In this week’s panel discussion, our news editor Eleanor Jones and senior news writer Lucy Elder discuss the challenges associated with the return of equestrian sport at all levels, and we also hear from Ricky, who discusses the issue of horses’ weight, and why owners need to be completely honest with themselves about it for their animals’ wellbeing.

    Editor-in-Chief Sarah Jenkins says: “We are so happy to have launched our podcast, the perfect compliment to Horse & Hound’s magazine and website, as an added benefit for H&H Plus subscribers. I hope listeners enjoy their visits behind the scenes at H&H Virtual Towers, hearing insight from the team as well as access to our heroes and Ricky’s top rate veterinary advice. Do let us know your thoughts.”
