Carl Hester: urgent rewrite of Brexit rules needed to avoid welfare problems in Calais *H&H Plus*

    Dressage, as of course you will know, is all about training. It is so exciting to see the breadth of opportunities available within BD for horses of all shapes and sizes – not only to strut their stuff in the arena, but to be trained correctly along the scales of training.
