Horse & Hound; 7 January 2021

In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday, 7 January, we take a look at how to garner some inspiration this New Year, including how top riders deal with nerves to help you get the most out of your riding, plus a closer look on the day-to-day life of a sports psychologist. This week’s legends of the sport nostalgic feature looks back at the career of High And Mighty, the dun who won Badminton twice in a row and put Sheila Wilcox on the map. We also have an exclusive interview with working hunter specialist Katy Green and reports from showjumping shows across the country, plus a look back at the racing action from Sandown Park among much more.
