Horse & Hound is the oldest equestrian weekly magazine of the United Kingdom.[2] Its first edition was published in 1884. The magazine contains horse industry news, reports from equestrian events, veterinary advice about caring for horses, and horses for sale. Fox hunting has always been an important topic for the magazine, as are the sports of eventing, dressage, show jumping, horse racing, showing, carriage driving and endurance riding. The magazine includes commentaries from top riders and trainers including event rider William Fox-Pitt, top eventing trainer Captain Mark Phillips, top show jumper William Funnell and Olympic dressage rider and trainer Carl Hester, among others. Its current Content Director is Sarah Jenkins, who replaced the magazine's first female editor, Lucy Higginson, in July 2014.

Among the major annual equestrian events reported by Horse & Hound are Badminton Horse Trials, Burghley Horse Trials, The Horse of the Year Show and the Olympia London International Horse Show.

The magazine is published by Time Inc UK. The latest copy reaches shops every Thursday, while press day is Monday. The magazine's office is at Pinehurst II in Farnborough (formerly the Blue Fin Building/Kings Reach Tower in central London).
