Having seen first-hand the difference remedial farriery can make, our feature with master farrier Ben Benson is a truly fascinating read. With advances in products and technology, it’s amazing what farriers can do to keep our horses happy, comfortable and sound.

Carrying on with the innovation theme, the equestrian world really seems to be catching up and we’ve covered this in a number of articles in our gear section this month, such as our buyer’s guide to trailers, and the growing number of designs available for stirrups with your comfort and safety in mind.

To gauge your opinion, we asked you on our Facebook page which stirrups you use and why. There was a great response and some of you really have had your riding lives transformed by a particular pair. Find out more about the most popular choices inside this issue.
