Whether you are a novice or more experienced rider, hacking out is one of the most pleasurable ways of spending time in the saddle. From tacking up to cooling down, this book is an essential guide to happy hacking on- and off-road.
Karen Bush first hacked out at the age of twelve. She enjoyed it so much she went on to become a qualified riding isntructor, building on her own experiences or riding to ensure that her clients' rides were exciting but safe. She has brought on young horses and worked at a holiday and trekking centre. Stephen Jenkinson returned to riding in his thirties. As an independent access consultant and Fellow of the Institute of Public Rights of Way and Access Management, he has in-depth knowledge of riders' rights and responsibilities, while work as a pet behaviour counsellor has given him insight into the bond between horse and rider.
