Rid­ing then and now

Your Horse (UK) - - Looking Back At Horsey History -

In 1996, il­lus­tra­tions were de rigueur in the mag­a­zine world — some­thing we still do, but not to this ex­tent. The rid­ing sec­tion was so big then that hav­ing one or two fea­tures il­lus­trated (right), rather than pho­tographed, helped to break it up and of­fer the reader a dif­fer­ent per­spec­tive. Now our rid­ing fea­tures are very trainer or celebrity rider led, tackle spe­cific train­ing tech­niques and is­sues, and the pho­tog­ra­phy is de­tailed and beau­ti­ful (be­low). Rid­ing, par­tic­u­larly over­com­ing con­fi­dence wob­bles, is a pop­u­lar topic. And there’s no sign of it wan­ing.
