Horse & Hound; 8 February 2024

We also investigate how important lower-leg position is and whether stirrup length and physique play a part, plus we put puissance specialist Mr Blue Sky UK in the spotlight. Plus, in this week’s Vet Clinic pages, we look into how to best treat hoof abscesses. We have exclusive columns from William Funnell and Stuart Hollings for showjumping and showing aficionados. This week’s reports pages cover showjumping, dressage, racing and point-to-pointing for sport fans to enjoy. In our hunting pages, we spend a day with the Stonehall Harriers in Co Limerick, plus we feature hound breeder and long-serving master of the New Forest, Sir Newton Rycroft.
