Welcome to the April issue of Horsemanship Journal.


With Spring well and truly in the air, evenings are lighter and warmer days will be soon upon us, giving us no excuse not to shake off the winter cobwebs and spend time with our horses.

Anna Blake shares part one of her five-part series helping us ‘Build our Bubble’ with our equine partner. Regular author Helen O’Hanlon encourages us to spend some time putting pen to paper with her ‘Journaling for Success’ article. Ross Cooper explores the ‘Sacred Space’ created between humans and horses, and Freddy Steele explores if pain or behaviour are drivers behind how our horses interact with us.

Who could forget Riley’s journey? Hanna Walton brings us along for the ride with part two of her ‘Rehabbing Riley’ series.

Be sure to check out our Youtube Channel for exciting new content coming your way.


Stay safe and happy trails!
