Headlining this month’s riding section is Olympic eventer Laura Collett. The final part of her series focuses on cross-country technique you can build from the arena – you’ll be acing skinnies, arrowheads, corners and bounces in no time, guaranteed. Sir Lee Pearson’s back, too, and he’s here to remind us that any horse of any size can become a dressage star, it’s just about picking the right exercises to help him shine! We also share with you a super-simple barrel jumping exercise that’s easy to set up but packs a punch when it comes to the benefits. Fizz Marshall shares her top tips for retraining ex-racehorses, and we discuss the perks of polework and why you need to add them to your autumn schooling regime.

Tracey Cole also shares her advice for setting yourself up to succeed – and highlights one major mind hack that might be holding you back. Plus, equine behaviourist Anna Haines explains how your horse learns, and the pros and cons of the different methods you might choose for training.
