Editor’sWelcome wea


Finally the weather seems to be turning towards something resembling spring and we arecelebrating with the very first issue of our new style magazine,


Central Hors Horse


News What’sOn. Our main reason for the change is to make our brilliant show diary available to all horse owners, free! The diary has something for everyone; events for the competitive rider,clinics, training, sales, social events and morefor those who arenot. We’ve retained the essential flavour of the magazine by keeping many of our most


popular features. Thereare some changes; for instance our events coverage during the busy summer will appear first online at www.centralhorsenews. co.uk The pick of these reports will then be featured in printed review editions during the autumn and winter. Pick up your magazine from equestrian retailers, or guarantee your copy with ap&p subscription, which offers additional benefits including automatic entry into our giveways, and agreat free gift. See the special offer on this page. Enjoy the issue –and don’t forget to apply for the fabulous sponsorship programme offered by Kikon; what an amazing opportunity for up and coming riders! See page 6for details. Barbara
