In episode 34, British Olympic medal-winning dressage rider Laura Tomlinson talks to H&H dressage editor Polly Bryan about juggling family life with being a top sportswoman, among other topics.

“I think it’s too easy to focus on the life you might have had before you had kids, but I think you have to focus on finding strategies and on the things you can do, rather than on what you can no longer do once you’ve had children” – Laura Tomlinson on how she powers on mentally, even though she has three children to think about too

H&H podcast host Pippa Roome is joined by H&H news editor Eleanor Jones and news writer Becky Murray to discuss Brexit, rare breeds that are in danger and pony deaths on the New Forest’s roads.

“Drivers need to think of the 40mph speed limit as a limit and not a target” – Becky Murray on horse deaths on New Forest roads

In this week’s advice section we hear from horse trainer Jason Webb, who specialises in starting your horses and retraining those with problems. Jason talks about anxiety in horses and suggests, if your horse is feeling worried, why that might be the case.

“Horses can become anxious through contact, so if you’re holding onto your horse too tightly, they will feel claustrophobic and trapped” – Jason Webb
