The Magazine Issues

October 2022 Issue

October Horse&Rider magazine is out now!

Headline star of our riding section is Olympic eventer Laura Collett with the first instalment in her three-part to get your horse thinking and channel his energy in the right direction. This month, she shares a great polework exercise that asks plenty of questions. Continuing the polework theme, dressage rider and trainer Tania Grantham shares her second creative layout – the diamonds. Boasting benefits including accuracy, straightness, engagement and more, you won’t want to miss it. Also starring in this issue is eventer Sasha Hargreaves, whose simple gridwork layout provides the perfect framework for an inexperienced horse as well as an excellent challenge for one who’s more established. Plus, Paralympic dressage star Sir Lee Pearson shares all you need to know about lateral work. We also speak to Olympic eventer Tom McEwen and get the inside scoop on riding, training and the stars in his stables.

We hate to say it, but the evenings are now starting to draw in. H&R shares our best advice to make the transition from summer to winter routine stress free. We also speak to mindset and confidence coach, Alison Buttery, about the secrets to competing confidently, which means not only will you end your season on a high, but you may even find the motivation boost you need to keep your toe in the competition arena through the autumn months and into winter, too.

Facing a rugging dilemma? We ask your questions to a selection of the industry’s experts. Wondering how you can upgrade your horse’s stable before he starts extending his time spent inside? Not only have we put together a selection of products to try to enrich his indoor environment, but we’ve also put together all the advice you need to ensure his stable is a healthy place as well as a happy one. Plus, one horsey product that’s never worth the compromise is a solid winter coat, so we’ve put a selection of jackets to the test and chose the overall best performer, plus the best value for money – just in time for autumn.

If that wasn’t enough, we’ve got 23 opportunities for you to win some awesome prizes this month. With six Horseware turnout rugs up for grabs, as well as breeches, wet weather gear and some winter comforts you won’t want to be without, what’s stopping you from entering?

All this and so much more in the October issue of Horse&Rider – on sale now!
