The May issue of Horse&Rider is out now, and it’s finally gear guide time!

Taking centre stage in our riding section is Piggy March with the first of her series of expert know-how on stepping your horse up a level. In the first feature Piggy shares her top tips for getting your horse in peak condition. Joining her is fellow eventer, Pippa Funnell, with the second instalment of her guide to perfecting your contact. If that wasn’t enough, dressage rider Hannah Esberger-Hancock helps with improving your position and let’s not spend all our time with all four legs on the ground – get jumping with our guide to gridwork exercises.

With the summer months on the horizon, we get to grips with allergies, what causes them and how to manage them with help from vet, Deidre Carson. Pair this with our A-Z of all things flies and you’ll have the warmer months well in-hand. Ever wanted to try jumping your horse on the lunge? Fizz Marshall’s here to help you master your technique and reap the benefits. And do you know what your horse sees as he’s approaching a jump? We shed some light on equine eyesight and how it could affect your riding mindset.

It's show season and we’ve got you covered with a vet’s guide to poor performance. Plus, inspire envy in the showring with the perfect plaits after reading our top tips and get ready for summer adventures with our guide to travelling your horse. If your mind’s more on feeding, then how about checking out the science behind feeding a good doer with our expert nutritionist.
