This is a new section of the website: many a long year since I’ve added one of those. This one is going to be a record of Pony Magazine and Riding – much though I’d love to include others, like Horse & Hound, I am slightly handicapped by the fact I don’t have any, and am a bit daunted by the idea of starting a collection of something like H&H which is a weekly. And of which there are thousands.

But for the moment, this will be a record of Pony Magazine. It was started in 1949 – alas I don’t have copies of those first ones – and still continues today. The magazine was started by David Murphy and Lieut-Col Charles Hope. Hope had been responsible for the children’s section of Riding, and saw a gap in the market for a horsy magazine exclusively for children. History has proved him right: Riding folded in the March 2000, but Pony is still going strong today. I’m going to list the magazines for which I have pictures. You can assume that if there’s no picture, I would dearly love to have one, so if you can help, let me know (please, no pictures taken at an angle. Nice straight sides.)
