March 2023 Issue

The March issue of Horse&Rider is out now!

With the eventing season fast approaching, why not get ahead with your training and tackle some arena cross-country? Join Felicity Collins as she shares her top tips for riding different types of XC fences – from skinnies to corners and ditches to steps, you’ll be set up for success when the season gets underway. Help keep your horse super supple and feeling flexible with Nina Gill’s simple polework layout. With three different exercises to try, you’ll help boost his strength and power. Plus, Fizz Tickridge-Marshall is on hand to help you reach your horsey goals and reminds us that competing isn’t the be-all and end-all.

Kathryn Thakrar is back and this month she talks all things meditation and mindfulness – find out how improving your mindset can change your riding and relationship with your horse. Plus, she shows us yoga poses to help boost your mobility. Do you feel nervous at the thought of getting back in the saddle after a break? Certified mindset and confidence coach Alison Buttery shares her tips to help you reignite your passion for riding.

Dental checks are an important part of basic equine care and, this month, veterinary surgeon Freya Woods talks about what’s involved and common equine dental problems. Ever wondered what happens in the saddle fitting process? Join Master Saddle Fitter Andy Milner as he explains all and why it’s important to get your horse’s saddle checked on a regular basis.

With the relentless rain and sub-zero temperatures we’ve been subject to this winter, the waterproof chaps and trousers we tested were certainly put through their paces. Find out who came out on top on p116. From a year’s supply of Speedi- or Fibre-beet for your horse to a pair of Le Chameau wellies for you, we’ve got tonnes of fantastic prizes up for grabs. But you’ve got to be in it to win it ­– so, what are you waiting for?

All this and so much more in the March issue of Horse&Rider – out now!
