It’s not just grassroots riders that get nervous – in this issue one of the most popular winners of the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials of recent times, Pippa Funnell, explains the struggle, pain and self-doubt behind her extraordinary victory in 2019.

Having the right mindset is crucial for success and by using some simple techniques you’ll be able to really give your riding the attention it needs. We share the strategy to help you train your brain.

Also in this month’s issue, our new polework series will inspire you to push your boundaries and feel a real difference in your equine partner.

We discuss fitting the best one for you and your four-legged friend with the aim to have a horse who is happy, comfortable and willing when being ridden.
