Horse & Hound; 30 June 2022

  • The cover of this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday 30 June, features Shane Breen piloting Can Ya Makan to his first win in the Hickstead Derby (credit Peter Nixon). Inside you can read our expert analysis of all the action at Hickstead, alongside a full complement of competition reports from eventing to showjumping, showing to dressage. This issue also has a special focus on equestrian life in Scotland, including the most beautiful places to ride, how top riders based in Scotland make it work, and a quick catch-up with Scottish hero Scott Brash, as well as properties currently on the market in the country. This week’s exclusive columns are from Mark Phillips, Nina Barbour and Kerry Wainwright, while we chat to Anna Hall, the new CEO of polo’s governing body, in the H&H interview. Hunting fans won’t want to miss our preview of The Festival of Hunting and the Vet Clinic looks at the causes of sweet itch and how to manage the condition. If you want to sit down and enjoy a longer read, then turn to p62 to enjoy our latest Legends of the Sport feature – the diminutive dual Grand National winner, Tiger Roll.
