Horse & Hound; 2 July 2020

  • In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday, 2 July, don’t miss our “Pony Club special” including priceless ponies, plus top riders reflect on their Pony Club days and more. In this week’s “Vet clinic” we look at helping persistent skin irritation in horses over the summer months, and in “All in a day’s work” we talk to stunt rider Anna Warnecke. Showjumping makes a return in this week’s report pages, plus we have racing action from The Curragh and Newcastle, and check out the main contenders in this weekend’s Oaks and Derby being held behind closed doors at Epsom. We also explore hound judging abroad and why it is an invaluable experience, plus enjoy our nostalgic long-read feature “Legends of the sport” as we look at the stellar career of brilliant show rider Robert Oliver and much more.
