Your Horse is a monthly magazine which, if you saved each issue, would become a useful reference guide to all things related to horse care and riding.
While some equestrian magazines are interesting because they are very news based, I view Your Horse as being the 'how to' of the horse magazines with lots to read for all levels of enthusiast, whether an owner or someone who goes riding regularly and wants to gain some extra knowledge.
The features in the magazine tend to be seasonal, dealing with the kind of subjects that may appeal to a horse-lover at any given time, for example, preparing your horse for the show season in spring and about additional feeding in the winter. There are lots of places where readers have their questions answered by experts and I have often found myself flicking through the pages of a back copy because I've vaguely remembered reading something about an issue I'm been facing with my own horse.
I have owned horses for many years and while I sometimes read the articles and think 'new presentation - same old idea, there is often something new, whether a theory, product or veterinary breakthrough which I have never heard about before, which is good to keep up with the times and sometimes pick up a few tips that make modern horse care a bit easier on time and your pocket.
What I really like about this magazine is that although it is glossy and has the usual scenic pictures and degree of advertising, there is still so much genuine content to read - not many flimsy fillers here! A good magazine worth buying and saving for future reference for anyone interested in the day-to-day care and riding of horses and ponies.
Your horse is an imformative magazines for all levels of riders. It often contains articles about dressage, jumping and other disiplines such as vaulting. Although published monthly it is packed with information to read throughout the month. It has a horse/pony for sale section, web guide and holiday and insurance section. Your horse often contains free pull-out or special features such as coping with winter and caring for old horses. There are lots of competitions and giveaways every month with easy questions to anwser. your horse is also good for none horse-owners as they have intersting articles on how the horses body works and things you can do in riding lessons. your horse doesn't feature a lot about breeds or about other equine activities. It should include more articles about different breeds, military horses, police horses etc. Not including articles like this means that your horse is more for the adult rider and appeals more to the serious rider/competitors of this world.
Your Horse Magazine is published once a month and is basically packed full of info about riding, caring for horses, land management, plus things like herbal remedies and horse whispering techniques. The magazine also has a "Letters" and a section where people as questions section which I find very interesting and useful (the extra good point ive found about the asking questions section is that it is all catagorized - eg. riding queries, veterinary, herbal remedies, legal queries, to name but a few.) In addition to this there is quite often a section on "Best Buys" which from month to month covers things like "best riding boots" "best new zealand rugs" etc. Other parts of the magazine include the horses for sale, loan, work for rides, searching for your lost horses, etc. But there is not too many of them advertised (incase you're not looking!) The best point about Your Horse in my opinion (apart from it simply being the best equine magazine around!) is the fact that its useful for the non-horse owners like myself (unfortunately im not a horse owner.....yet!!) Definately worth a look!
This has to be the best horse related magazine on the shelves. It has been established now for some years and the experience shows through. Every month there are practical tips depending on the time of year and also articles on the best buys around. Speaking as a horse owner, this magazine offers help and advice which can be used to your advantage and not just pie in the sky advice which is out of most peoples reach. All the special offers are competively priced and I have taken advantage of a great many of them. There always seem to be articles which you can relate to your own personal situations and I just cannot rate this magazine enough. The experience of the writers and editors (all horse owners) shines through.
