Well, here it is, our December/January issue and the very last for 2017! It’s been another action-packed year and the first half of the new show season has certainly lived up to that. We’ve got 38 pages of coverage from just a few of the shows that have run across the country over the last few months - from A&P shows to Dressage Championships to the multi-disciplined spectacle of Equidays in October. Featuring on this issue's cover is the inspiring Harriet Redmond, who just 12 months ago suffered a life-changing accident. But, through her power of positivity, she was back out competing her beloved horses only a few months later. We have several interviews and stories featuring riders, trainers and breeders involved in a range of disciplines. Our training section starting on page 62 is filled with great tips, tricks and ideas from the experts, and our health section includes an in-depth look at equine back pain with Dr Ronan Costello, along with a guide to balancing your diet around your own lifestyle. This edition we’re also proud to bring you our very first “SaleCircuit”, showcasing some of the lovely horses out there on the market. As we head to Christmas and the start of another year, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank everyone involved in Show Circuit magazine - our advertisers, contributors and, of course, our loyal readers. I hope you’ve enjoyed every issue of Show Circuit this year and on behalf of the team, I wish you a safe and happy festive season.
