Brandon McAuslan looks at reducing risk, and how we keep our horses sane and healthy when we cannot ride them. Kate McLaughlin talks about what this means for us all as horse owners. "There are no shortcuts to any place worth going." I love this quote from Ben Longwell, and in this issue, Ben talks about 'Shortcuts' and why they won't get you to where you want to be. Hopefully, you caught our live webinar with Ben, if not you can watch the replay here!
We benefit from Al Dunning's 50-year career with the first in a new series of articles called ‘Making of a Champion’. Ben Longwell breaks down why the correct training and handling when it comes to our horse's feet, is essential for their education, and our safety. Joe Midgley explains why understanding reach is key to your horse's education.
In other news, I am excited to be working on ‘Horsemanship Hour Live’. Horsemanship Hour Live is a free online event that you can watch from the comfort of your sofa. Each episode will cover a different topic, with expert guests. Our second episode is on the 15th of April, and my first guest is Phillipa Christie.
