In the Spring issue of Horse we are focussing on creating a partnership with our horse, making their learning experiences positive and improving their manners.

Equine behaviourist Justine Harrison tells us how horses learn and then looks at the pros and cons of methods used by owners and trainers.

We also have some schooling secrets from dressage rider Michelle Parkyn to calm a spooky horse.

And 20 tips to get those perfect manners on the floor too.
