Western Horse Cover Sean Coleman


I feel like the end of the year came around really quickly, after March through April seemed to go on forever the rest of the year has flown by. 

Given the year we have had we asked readers to let us know how the year has impacted them, you can find our reader stories in both Western Horse and Horsemanship Journal. 

Our regular authors round out the year with insightful articles that I'm sure you will find useful. Crissi McDonald talks about how consistency is the foundation of our relationship with our horses. Bella Barr regales how 'Purpose Driven Horsemanship' with Sean Coleman gave her a new understanding of the benefits of cow work. Brandon McAuslan hones in on sound, and what it means for our horses. And Ben Longwell explores how a horse's comfort zone when untested can lead to misconception.

Finally, I'd like to thank our authors, suppliers, advertisers and subscribers for your support in 2020.

All of the Western Horse UK team wish you a wonderful Christmas and a fantastic 2021.
