I was first introduced to the magazine a few years ago by a friend, and since then it has become my alternative newspaper for everything horsey. The magazine includes news, features on famous riders, horses and events, information about the latest in veterinary knowledge and care, hunt, racing, dressage and other competition diaries, advertisements for everything from feed supplements to trailers, and of course the equine classifieds, which is usually my first port of call! At £2.30 per issue, it can be a bit pricey to buy every week, although they do offer a discount for subscriptions. I tend to buy it every other week, depending on what articles are ...

I purchase Horse & Hound every week without fail. I think that it is one of the best equestrian managazines out there and has lots of different aspects of the equestrian life. There are several different sections, each one very well written and interesting. First of all, in my opinion the front cover is very eye catching. It has an impressive picture of a beautiful horse each week, with the title really standing out in big, white, block letters. It has some information on the front of what is inside this week's issue, with quotes, free prizes and lots of helpful guides. It also shows the date and price in smaller writing. The first page you ... Read the complete review

Maybe I'm a little bit prejudiced against Horse and Hound because I am anti-hunting, or because I don't compete as I don't own my own horse. I rarely buy Horse and Hound unless I really want to read it; normally around the WEG (World Equestrian Games) or the Olympics. The tone of Horse and Hound can be at times, very elitist and the small text can be hard for people to read. The - somewhat few - articles tend to centre around getting your horse ready for top level competition and therefore are not useful for the casual rider, though they do make interesting reading. I also find Horse and Hound very expensive compared to other magazines with it being around ... Read the complete review

Horse and Hound is bought by Step dad every week as we have horses so we buy for the articles rather the hunting section. Horse and Hound comes out every week each Thursday and costs £2.40. There are reports on all the biggest equestrian events such as:- Racing Hunting Point-to-point Dressage Showjumping Showing and Eventing etc. They also have articles on new products and from major horse sportsmen. There are always letters and lots of horses for sale adverts and other adverts. My favourite part of the magazine is the large amount of adverts listed weekly. There are high end horses for sale and also lots of ... Read the complete review

I hardly read Horse & Hound Magazine. It's seems to be more aimed at the Aristocrat generation of the world. The Magazine is very opinionated an I do not find it coming across freindly at all. Compared the likes of Your Horse, where you can pick up all sorts of tips and hints. The magazine is user freindly for all walks of life who ride. Horse & Hound just doesn't have anything quite intesting to read half the time. Yeah it has all th results in but, I just get bored with the groveling patronising blurb really. My other horse mags are interesting, bright, colouful have loads of great things to look at like new products and they ... Read the complete review
