I really like Horses Illustrated- it does have some Western things in it, but a lot of it's English. It's veryyy helpful & has a lot info! Plus posters.

Ride more, worry less.

Practical Horseman is the best magazine that is geared specifically towards English riders.

I like Dressage Today :3 but then again, im bias because I do Dressage, LOL

They don't have JUST huge upper level Dressage-y stuff in it. They have a lot of lower level stuff too, like articles on the importance of flexing your horse, counter canter, circles 101, posting effectively, etc.

I had no idea about the Practical Horseman, i always figured that was a Western Rider magazine, LOL.

Horse illustrated is good for a lot of the basic stuff too, so im glad you have it =) Horse and Rider is also good with basics, but they feature western as well ^_^

I would get Young Rider if you are youngish and new to riding. I've been riding 9 years and I'm 15 and I find Horse Illustrated mostly geared to riders who own their own horses, where as Young Rider is geared toward newer riders.

Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

Thanks everyone :)

Equuestriaan I wish I was a youngish rider. My daughter use to get Young Rider she really enjoyed it. Heck I even read some of the articles. :) I have been riding Western for longer then I want to share :) but I feel like a newborn baby when it comes to English. :) I was taking lessons and loved every minute of it but with my Trainer moving to a new place that only has an outdoor at this time we are at the mercy of the weather. So I have been reading everything about English I can get my hands on while wanting for better weater to hurry up and get here.
