As we look out of the window of Your Horse Towers, we can’t deny it, there’s a miserable day staring right back at us. It’s autumn – there we said it. But no need to feel glum. We’ve had a glorious summer with our horses, and even though winter can be a pain, there’s lots you can do to make it a more pleasurable few months. And that includes reading Your Horse magazine of course. We make it our mission to bring you fun, advice, inspiration and the best horsey gear every month, and the November issue is no different. Here’s what you can look forward to this month. Grab that cup of tea and dive in.

Your Horse Live 2018 is now just around the corner (well that’s how it feels!) Find out what’s in store for visitors with our YHL preview – lots to tempt you here.  

Our Hack 1000 miles campaign is constantly growing in numbers and many of our challengers are nearing the 1000-mile mark as we head towards the end of 2018. This month, the Your Horse team headed off to the Burghley Sponsored Ride on the Sunday of Burghley Horse Trials. We chatted to many of the lovely folk signed up to our challenge who were taking part.

We talk to Dragon’s Den Deborah Meaden about all things horses.

In our Your Horse Challenges this month, we delve into the world of team chasing. It gives you the ultimate adrenalin rush and even if you decide not to give it a go, it’s a fantastic sport to be a spectator at. Choose your team and roar them on.
