I have been buying this magazine on and off for years now but it is only in the last four months when I have actually had my own horse that I have felt I have actually got the most out of this magazine. That is not to say that if you don't own a horse then there is nothing for you but that most of the product reviews, riding articles etc are only really relevant or you can only get to practice them if you either have your own horse, or if you ride somewhere where you can have a significant input in what you can practice.
In each magazine there will be sections on riding, horsecare, equipment, health as well answers to readers problems and a horse for sale section. The overall philosophy of the magazine does seem to promote the wellbeing of the horse, including working with the horse not simply forcing the horse to behave in a certain way by using tools and gadgets. There have however been a few comments within the articles which I have questioned such as saying a young horse is 'misbehaving' when it simply doesn't understand what is being asked of it.
I have subscribed to this magazine and look forward to receiving it each month - I keep all the old copies so that I can refer to them as and when necessary. I would definitely recommend this magazine and it is one of the best on the market.
I always used to suscribe to this magazine but I have stopped the subscibtion as I have found this magazine has in my opinion become rather repitive. However, as I have been reading this for the last ten years this could be the reason!
Your Horse is a monthly magazine and retials at £3.80, alternativally you can obtain a subsription. The price for this varies as do the incentives for taking this option I perasonally would contact them directly if you are interested in this.
The magazine covers all aspects of horemanship, and is broken down into
News and stuff, Riding and Husbandry, plus a section on Horses available for sale and fun competions.
The back of the magazine is also a directory of products and services. I have in the past found this a usefull service and have purchased electric fencing via a advert in this section.
I would throughly recomend this magazine for the first time Horse owner or someone who is starting out in the Horse world. However, if like myself you have been around Horses for years then you probably would not gain a lot from the magazine. There are some useful pointers and new research information which I find interesting. I find now I tend to look at the cover or the topics page to see whether I would be interested in buying this magazine, although the competions are fun.
Your horse magazine is in my opinion one of the best readable horse magazines about. They dont care if you have your own horse or if you are young or old, they just encourage you to do things safely and correctly. They give you the facts and then leave it up to you to make your choice. They review equipment from what you as a human would need or want to what the horse needs or you want for them. They offer every opportunity to win various prizes and to take part in various training events. they are not biased to any discipline, which I do find some magazines are. Me, personnaly being slightly older, findit actually encourages people like me to take part in local shows if I want. They stress that age is no barrier and never to old to do things for the first time. They quite often have pics and articles in there which feature ordinary peoples acheivements whether big or small. They say that if you want do showing of any discipline, thats fine go ahead and offer advice, but if you just want to a happy hacker, again thats fine do it and be proud of it, they still offer advice. If you have problems with your horse or your riding they offer advice generally in easy to understand english. I have been buying this magazine for a few years now and I always learn something from it, I have even heard peoplr a lot more experienced with horse than I am say the same thing, so it is obviously reaching a varied skill market and caters for both the experienced and not so experienced.
This magazine is the god of all horse magazines. It's youtr bible, its your friend :)
When I was a Kid i'd always buy Horse and Pony magazine. Now I am not a kid I buy Your Horse. It's cheap at £3.60 per month and its full of everything you need to know.
It's got letters from readers, Q&A's for health problem, feeding, riding, legal matters, products. New product reveiws, great articles on riding, feeding and any other matters.
You can enter some great competitions for some brill prizes too! I won a bag on Dengie Horse feed once I was so happy just to win a prize, saldy my horse didn't eat Dengie nor did my friends, so I donated it to HorseWorld :).
The magazine is aimed at all riders any age. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or an expert. There's always new things to learn. You'll never stop learning.
You can also subscribe to this magazine for an amount per month. And get a fab free gift. I subscribed and got a free Numnah, in the pst i have also got a grooming kit, haynet and a rug.
A fanastic magazine for teh horse community..
I've been buying this magazine for many, many years now. I even used to buy "Your Horse"'s sister magazine, "Horse & Pony". I simply adore Your Horse! This magazine is very, very useful to anyone interested in horses, whether you are lucky enough to own one or not (like me!...everyone saw "awwww"!) It gives plenty of helpful hints and tips to everyone from the novice to the more experienced horse rider/owner. It has articles covereing real life stories, along with hints/tips style pages. It comes out monthly, and each month you'll be sure to find loads of new information in the magazine to keep your grey matter working efficiently! One helpful thing often featured in the magazine is "illustrated guide to...." sections, each month (or most months) they will have a different topic. Past one's have included simple things such as cleaning a saddle, other months it will be braiding the main and tail, etc. However, no matter what topic it is on you're sure to learn something new! Each month it has a special section aimed at one particular subject e.g. feeding, riding tips, rugging, clipping, veterinary aspects etc. which are useful to keep and look back on every now and then (put it this way, i've got about 200 issue's of this magazine stored in my wardrobe!) Each month you'll get up to date features, such as the foot & mouth crisis, it gives hints and tips about where to ride, where not to ride, how/what to do if you live near a suspected farm, the best way to clean the horses hooves before and after a ride to help minimise any spread of infection, etc. It also contains great offers such as riding holidays and equestrian equipment, along with many, many competitions each month. In the back of the magazine it has a section for Horses For Sale/Loan and a section for people to find any previous history on there horse
s which can be very useful if you have bought an older horse and wish to find out about its background or you sold your horse a while back and want to find out how it is doing these days, etc. Also featured in this section is "Pen Pals" and "Work for Rides". In the adverts after the "Horses for sale" type adverts we also get holidays, courses, websites, mail order catalgoues, etc. advertising in the back. There are only two [slight] disadvantages with this magazine, and that is: (a) the magazine tends to cater for horse owners, e.g. the competitions offer a "Free saddle and feed for a year". Thats great isnt it?! Well yes - but what would a non-horse owner do with a years supply of horse food and a saddle?! Sell it I suppose! (b) this magazine is too readable! You can't put it down! (not a good thing when you've got revision and homework to be doing!) All in all, a 10 out of 10 from me though!
I used to buy it alot. I say used to, I don't so much anymore. Not because I don't like it but I have a different life with new interests and in London there is no so much call for horse knowledge! I thought the magazine was excellent though. I never had the chance to own my own horse, but I worked with them for a few years and used this magazine for valuble research and information. It's full of interesting facts and guides to help you in your problems with riding and horse care. It's easy to read and another magazine I would often keep for reference. I'm aware of the magazine having a facelift recently. I'm sure its just made an excellent magazine even better. I read it for interest but it is a good read and guide for horse owners everywhere.
This magazine is very useful to anyone interested in horses. It gives helpful hints to everyone from the novice to the more experienced horse owner. It has great advice sections with very good illustrated guides. Being a horse owner myself I buy this magazine every month for helpful hints and tips. Each month it has a special section aimed at one particular subject eg. feeding, riding tips, clipping etc. which is very useful to keep and look back on for reference in the future. It also contains great offers such as riding holidays and equestrian equiptment via mail order which I find great. In the back of the magazine it has a section for Horses For Sale/Loan and a section for people to find any previous history on there horses which can be very useful if you have bought an older horse and wish to find out about its backgroundetc. I would reccomend this magazine to any horse enthusiast and consider it very good value for money.......
