Growing disquiet in the equestrian world as the editor of Horse & Hound is replaced with the magazine’s brand development editor who is said not to hunt
It is the bible of the hunting set, having faithfully reported on equestrian matters for 130 years.
But there is growing unrest over radical changes at Horse & Hound magazine which have seen its longstanding editor replaced with one who is said not to hunt.
Sarah Jenkins, the journal’s “brand development editor” has been promoted to run the title in place of Lucy Higginson, its editor for more than a decade.
The magazine’s publishers insists that Ms Jenkins, a former dressage editor of the publication who owns three horses, has an “in-depth knowledge of equestrianism” that makes her “ideal” for her new role.
However she is known among staff for a lack of hunting experience, generating fears that she would be unable to maintain the quality of the magazine.
Regardless of what people think, everyone at Emerald Fine Forage wishes her the best of luck in her new role.
