Equine Therapies for Wellbeing and Rehabilitation 

Following on from last issue where we looked at accessible and affordable products and technologies available for horse owners to maintain the well-being of their horse at home, we now look at some of the more specialised and sophisticated equipment - those that may require the assistance of an equine health professional and a bigger budget. 

Equestrian Fashion . . . Shirts

Riding shirts available today make the most of fabric technologies, with an extensive range of competition and riding shirt styles, colours, embellishments and brands available to choose from. Paralympian Sharon Jarvis, Show Horse competitor Chanele Hunter-Cooke, the Horseland Midland Team, Anna Johnson from Equestrian Evolution and Zoe Harrison from Hannoverian Riding Wear contribute their expertise on current trends in riding shirts and equestrian fashion. 

This Oct/Nov cover features Paralympian Sharon Jarvis who shares information on her riding wear at Tokyo in the feature on Equestrian Fashion; this issue focussing on shirts with styles to suit everybody. 

A bumper issue this time with the inclusion of the 2021 Stallion and Stud Directory in the magazine, we hope you enjoy going through the stallions and studs featured in the Directory,  which is also available online, and as usual this entire issue is available to read with the Hoofbeats app if that is a more convenient way to read your magazine.
