Show Circuit Magazine is packed with informative articles for riders and horse owners. Our magazine is aimed at the dedicated equestrian, providing valuable training and inspiration for all disciplines. We produce an exciting mix of features, photo essays and regular columns, with a stylish and modern design.

Well, the 'lucky' country suddenly got very unlucky with the recent Delta COVID-19 outbreak. What a shame for some events that for the second year running, some cancellations ensued. One thing we can count on at the moment is that we cannot count on anything! Never was Groundhog Day more relevant than right now.

Now, after isolation and our second 'staycation', life is shifting back into high gear. As I write this, Auckland has yet to change from Level 4. My hope is that a renewed sense of optimism will prevail as we move towards a 'new normal'.

Our equestrian community is so fortunate in many ways. Some of us are so lucky to have the outdoors and our fur babies at our back door so that life is not impacted quite so much as for the rest of the country. But our hearts go out to the many who are struggling to find a way through this chaos. We are a resourceful bunch, and we collectively manage to reinvent ways to continue our pursuits and find creativity and satisfaction in a plethora of ways.

On top of COVID-19, adverse weather events have been experienced around the country. Our hearts broke watching the flooding in mid-Canterbury and West Auckland.  We were glad to hear the stories of people in our wonderful equestrian community supporting each other, and, at least in Kumeu, there appear to have been no horse fatalities.

On a brighter note, it is exciting to see so many of our equestrian riders leave for Europe to further their riding careers. We will watch them with keen interest to see how they get on.

Once again, we have another bumper issue for you. With our photographers unable to get into the field for our 'beyond the farm gate' interviews and events cancelled or rescheduled, we have focussed heavily on horse health in this issue. We hope you enjoy and hopefully learn from the variety of horse health articles.

I hope you enjoy this month’s magazine alongside the warmer weather we’ve been enjoying a sneak peek of.

From the team here, we hope you have a fabulous start to the season!

Until our next issue, happy riding. ❤️
