Horse & Hound; 11 April 2019

In this week’s Horse & Hound magazine, out on Thursday 11 April 2019, don’t miss part two of our ‘Sport horse breeding special’, we meet legendary dressage stallion, Fidertanz, plus we visit Shane Breen’s Hickstead stud and much more. We also have full analysis, pictures and comment from the Winter Dressage Championships and the Grand National, plus in this week’s ‘H&H interview’ we talk to top New Zealand eventer Andrew Nicholson. In ‘Vet clinic’ we look into vision problems in veteran horses, and read reports from across the disciplines including dressage and showjumping action from the World Cup Final and much more.
