September / October 2016 Issue
This issue started at the Longines Royal International Horse Show at Hickstead where day after day we watched local riders crowned as national champions. The following few weeks were just as busy with fantastic shows and amazing results, and just as we were about to go to print Nick Skelton and Big Star won Individual Gold at the Olympic Games in Rio.
Kent, Sussex and Hampshire all have wonderful sandy beaches which are perfect for riding on. We have been sent some stunning pictures by readers of their favourite beaches for riding. We hope the article will inspire you to have ago or even be tempted to try riding somewhere new.
