Smart Grooming Journal

Whilst a set of perfect plaits or a beautifully cut showing jacket won’t win rosettes, turning out your horse and yourself to the highest standard is an important part of creating the right picture. Attention to detail at any level of competition is paramount, whether it’s a neatly shaped tail at just the right length or a set of quarter marks that compliments your horse’s quarters perfectly.

Here you will find tips and tricks in the art of turnout, with excerpts written by top showing producer, Katie Jerram-Hunnable.
