Horse & Hound; 20 May 2021

  • In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday, 20 May, we bring you our horses for sale special, which includes a look at when owners should make the decision to sell their horse, when buying a horse unseen works (and doesn’t work) and more. We also bring you an interview with five-star event rider Harry Meade, who has successfully returned to competition following a brain injury and more. You can also read veterinary advice on ensuring your bridle fits perfectly to help avoid pressure which might inhibit your horse’s performance. We also have reports from eventing, showing, dressage, point-to-pointing, racing, showjumping and team chasing both from the UK and abroad.
