CORONAVIRUS AND HOOFBEATS
The Hoofbeats Team have made the decision to put the coming June July printed magazine into 'hibernation' and produce a digital version of the magazine.

What's more, we will be making it available to all horse owners FREE so we can continue to deliver informative and engaging articles to those who are staying home while the virus runs its course.

How does this affect subscribers?
Please be assured that your current or new print subscription will just be put on 'hold' and will resume when the situation changes.

To support Hoofbeats in its endeavour to continue to bring more content to horse owners please consider subscribing to our app (1, 3 or 6 issues) or the printed magazine. A big thanks to those who have already shown their support for our small business.

Stay safe, enjoy reding the April May issue and we look forward to connecting with you digitally. See you online.
