Tracking-up is a paper-copy periodical co-published by me and my friend, classical trainer and author, Anne Wilson, and is specially for people who prefer hard copies of their reading material rather than reading on-screen. It is for everyone, at any level of experience, who rides or cares for horses or ponies. There is a basic Tracking-up website at

If you want something different, absorbing, enlightening and thought-provoking, you will love Tracking-up. It covers riding and schooling; classical equitation; care and management; veterinary and equine science; and behaviour, psychology and learning. Other topics include the latest research and developments, comment and opinion (so prepare to write in), in-depth reviews of important books and DVDs, conference reports, and more besides.

Tracking-up concentrates on horses and everything relating to their well-being rather than on horse-world personalities and politics, unless they affect equine welfare. It is independent of advertisement income, free from the influence of any controlling organisation or company and is not profit-led - in fact, it is a voluntary, non-profit concern.


Tracking-up is available quarterly by post as single copies (£5.17) or a year's subscription of four issues (£18.70) including postage in the UK. Therefore, it pays to subscribe as subscribers get a discount, also a free help service and discounts on our books. To buy a copy or subscribe, just clearly print your name, address and 'TUGW' on the back of your cheque for the relevant amount and send it to Tracking-up, 50 Marsh House Lane, Darwen, Lancashire, BB3 3JB, and your first copy will arrive soon.

Overseas readers are most welcome. If you live outside the UK, email, putting 'TUGW' in the subject bar, and Anne will email back to you full information on where to send your sterling bank draft (sorry, no sterling Eurocheques due to high bank charges to us), plus surface or air mail prices to your part of the world.

We look forward to welcoming you to Tracking-up and helping you to enjoy horses even more.
