Horse & Hound; 9 June 2022

  • This week’s Horse & Hound magazine, on sale Thursday 9 June, features our Derby special report, which includes a review of the action from both days of the famous meeting. We also bring you an exclusive interview with dressage multi-medallist Carl Hester to find out what keeps him motivated and we also reveal nostalgic vets’ tales from days or yore. Also inside, we have our regular favourite features, including a Vet Clinic that looks at how horses’ vision differs to humans – and how an understanding of this can help our relationship with them and joint performance, as well as a full complement of competition reports from eventing to showjumping, showing to dressage, and pointing to hunting for readers to enjoy.
