Horse & Hound; 25 November 2021

  • This week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday 25 November, is our advent calendar front cover, which will bring you a daily delight from 1 December right through until Christmas. Also inside our festive advent issue are some special recipes for our equine friends and a fun feature on how equestrians cope with the festivities. This week’s H&H Interview is with young event rider Felicity Collins, while in Vet Clinic we examine the digital flexor tendon sheath and our Legend of the Sport focus features Dawn Run, the Gold Cup and Champion Hurdle hero.  In addition, we bring you action from the world of showjumping, showing, racing, point-to-point and dressage, plus a range of hunting features, including our report from the Melton Hunt Club ride.
