Here at EN, we’ve long been big followers and fans of Black cowboy and cowgirl culture – and now that Queen Bey has well and truly catapulted it into the mainstream conscious, we’re thrilled that that’s giving the work of photographer Ivan McClellan some well-deserved attention, too. He’s one of the foremost documenters of the culture, with work that carries us from the thrill and ferocity of the rodeo ring to the quiet of the stables, where woman and horse meet as equals. Fair warning: you’ll lose yourself for hours in his back catalogue of extraordinary work. But it’s well worth it.

Here’s how she found the experience of attending her first workshop.

How old is the oldest horse you know? A friend of mine has still got her childhood Pony Club partner, who’s now 32 years old and thriving – but New Years Eve has him beat. He might just be the oldest ex-racehorse in the world right now at 38 years old – and he’s still happily cantering around his field, which is either a testament to his great care or that ineffable Thoroughbred spirit, or a bit of both. Meet him here.

The spring grass is coming through, and that’s an exciting, heartening moment after a long winter. But for your horse, whose diet hinges so much on forage – which includes grazing – it can lead to a few different digestive wobbles. Here’s a primer on how spring grass could impact your horse, and what to do about it.

Occasionally, I just want to indulge in a trip down memory lane – and the FEI’s Horses of History series is such a great way to do that. Join me in reminiscing about Pippa Funnell’s brilliant Supreme Rock:
