Horse & Hound; 31 August 2017

  • In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, out on Thursday 31 August 2017, don’t miss our bumper issue from the European Championships in Gothenburg, including all the action from the dressage, showjumping and para dressage, analysis, expert comment and pictures. Plus, check out our ultimate Burghley guide — we detail each combination heading to the four-star, take a look at the dressage test and, if you’re heading to Burghley, don’t forget our course map. Read this week’s H&H interview with European eventing bronze medallist Nicola Wilson and in ‘Vet clinic’ we ask if horses respond to facial expressions. We also have reports from Scope Festival, the Pony Club championships, racing action from York Ebor and much more.
