In this issue

It's good to be able to include event reports once again in a year when so many have been cancelled. Amy Mundell was at the British Carriagedriving National Championships and has a full report. We also have reports from the BDS Essex & North London Show, the Attelage de Tradition at Euston Hall and the Bucks Counties Spectacular Show. Lester Dagge discovers more about the history of driving livery and etiquette with Savile Row's Henry Poole & Co. Bob Elliott explains why some traditions simply disappear, whilst others endure the test of time. In part two of our training feature with coach Sara Howe and scurry driver Chris Orchard, things are starting to pay off. We have sound advice for keeping hooves healthy – whether shod or un-shod. We take a look at some of the dedicated volunteers with the British Scurry and Trials Driving group. Emily Ham has all the latest news in Junior Spotlight and Carey Knox gives an hilarious insight into the road to becoming an equestrian commentator.
