In this issue, Dutton:

- coaches riders on straightness, connection and forward riding.
- stresses the importance of having clear goals for every ride and understanding that everything you do on your horse is training in some way.
PLUS, A. Kent Allen, DVM, explains that medication and management can slow the progression of arthritis and help maintain your horse’s comfort so he’s able to perform.
