The Your Horse team was amazed at the response to our recent ‘Search for a cover star’ competition on our website. We were a little overwhelmed by the number of entries we received and the great photography skills you have! The winner of the ‘readers’ vote’ is on the cover of this issue, and the standard was so high that we’ll be using another one next month too.

Whether you’re riding at the moment or not, we’ve put together a few features to inspire you to do some in-hand work with your horse. It’s amazing what you can achieve by working your horse from the ground, and you’ll find that it has a positive impact on your ridden work too — see pages 34 and 49.

With plenty of lush grass around and a bit of sun on their backs, some horses can become a little tricky to catch at this time of year. It’s such a frustrating habit, but help is at hand. Our step-by-step guide on page 66 shows how, with some clever clicker training, your horse will come to you to be caught!

We understand with the current lockdown in place it may be more difficult to get hold of Your Horse magazine, that’s why every issue of Your Horse is available to buy online, either as a single issue or subscription, to get delivered to your door. We’re also still available on digital platforms.
