In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, out on Thursday 5 March, we bring you the eventing special, guest edited by Oliver Townend. Oliver looks at some issues in modern-day eventing, including what type of horse is best suited to current events, and we ask how can the sport attract more owners? Plus we bring you the full Cheltenham Festival previews, from an interview with Willie Mullins to a full form guide. We also ask whether colic could be a matter of geography. You can also enjoy all the news and reports, including hunting from the Taunton Vale and Old Berks and much more.
