'Horsemanship' is my favourite horsey magazine, and it's perfect for people who spend a lot of time thinking about horses (like me!). They take a broad view of horsemanship that encompasses care and philosophy, work and play, one that doesn't limit itself to horses - they also cover other equines and of course humans; after all we are the ones who are more able to change, experiment and develop. PLUS they ship worldwide! 

There are many magazines about horses, but this magazine goes into more depth across more topics. They give our contributors the space they need to really explore and explain their topics and that makes the magazine a special source of practical information for understanding equines and the many ways we can relate to them and understand the world from their point of view. Produced and edited by two wonderful "unashamed horse geeks" and if you love to read, think and talk about horses, you're going to love it! Highly recommended
