April 2018 Issue - Mark Broadbent: Living the boyhood dream

In this issue

This month we have a comprehensive hoof care guide offering advice on how to improve and protect hooves. We continue our series, Bringing on Marco, with top British driver and trainer Anna Grayston. This month the focus is on lunging and long reining. We discover how the Old Guard, America’s oldest regiment and its horses play a vital part in the funerals honouring servicemen and women at the National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia. Susan Dunne catches up with Chester Weber – the face of US driving and the 15 times USEF Four in Hand Champion. Chester is looking ahead to the FEI World Equestrian Games and is hopeful of success on his home turf. Georgie Green pays a visit to Fenix Carriages in Devon and discovers how owner, Mark Broadbent, really is living his boyhood dream. Emily Ham meets up with members of the Dyfed Driving Club, set up nine years ago by Lester Dagge and with a reputation for being warm welcoming and willing to offer support to new members.
