Horse & Hound; 31 March 2022

  • This week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday 31 March, is guest edited by William and Alice Fox-Pitt, who are pictured on the cover with William’s five-star rides for this spring: Little Fire, Grafennacht and Oratorio II. Taking control for one week only, William and Alice have tasked our features editor and contributors with creating those articles they most want to read and feel our subscribers will enjoy. Also inside we bring you our regular favourite features, including a Vet Clinic on how to spot the subtle signs in sport horses that could suggest a problem, plus Legends of the Chase and Hunter of a Lifetime for our hunting enthusiasts. We also have reports from the Harborough Ride and a day with the Middleburg in the USA, as well as a full compliment of competition reports from eventing to showjumping, showing to dressage, and racing to pointing for readers to enjoy.
