Attention non-horsey spouses, friends, and family members out there: Are you in panic mode – what to get the horse lover in your life?!?!
Not only does it seem that they have it all (there are more leather, brass, silver whatcha-ma-call-its in their tack room than you have clothes in your closet!) but the horse world is a completely foreign and frankly frightening place, right?!
Well never fear, my friends. We’d like to help you find something unique and thoughtful to show that special someone (and their horse!) that while you may not truly ever understand how they claim to love the smell of horse poop (really?!) you DO love them.
Why we like this: You can personalize it with their name, their horse’s name, or barn/ranch name. It’s simple, classic, and works for any riding discipline. It’s an affordable, unique item, and it even looks great stacked if you can’t choose a favorite name!
Why we like this:This necklace is so pretty, and it says “horse lover” while not being too over the top or ridiculously cliche. It shows just the right amount of classic and contemporary, by taking a quintessential piece of equipment and making it a quintessential fashion statement.
For the down-right practical, a Hand-Painted Boot Jack, $24.95:
Why we like this: The hand-painted design puts the “fun” in function! Every barn, back door, mudroom, and car should have one. If the equestrian in your life is hard to shop for, sticking to basic essentials and putting them together in a new feed bucket is always a good go-to.
Why we like this: Just because we love horses doesn’t mean we want everything we own to have rinestones and horseshoes on it! 4 Adorable sayings will let your horse lover show off pride for their sport, while lookin’ sleek and sporty. Like your horse lover, these ergonomic bottles are built tough! Perfect for bard life, the trail, and everywhere in between!
Why we like this: These are so sweet-smelling and soft, we may or may not have tried them ourselves! Good thing they are all natural! 🙂 Always a favorite with my herd, you can never go wrong with a jar of horse cookies. ‘Nuf said!
Why we like this: Simply, this stuff is amazing! It does wonders for a tangley mane and tail and should be an essential in every equestrians tack room if it’s not already. Available in two sizes to meet every budget, I vote bigger is better! A great addition to a stocking or gift basket.
Why we like this: What little girl didn’t wish for a Pegasus pony with pink hair?! Now the young one in your life – or the young at heart – can have just that! While this isn’t for everybody, it’s just unique and unexpected enough to make a fun holiday gift! Great for use in play-day shows and parades too.
Why we like this: Mainly, these technical gloves by SSG look so stinkin’ cool! However, one can never have too many gloves. You are bound to forget them, and they suffer lots of wear and tear. These are tough for a light-weight glove, and what I personally ride in most of the time. If the look isn’t for you, check out the link anyway for lots of other quality SSG gloves in the same price range.
Why we like this: It’s a nice, personal and classic detail. This attaches to the back of the saddle, and is also available in a western style (although this link is only for the english style). The equestrian in your life will surely be touched by your thoughtful creativity. Most use their name, but consider a fun nick-name, or their horse’s name if he’s a life-long, or only horse.
Why we like this: Oh Com’on! How cute is that?! For the other love of their life, this makes a great gift. They will know you thought of something just for them! This jacket is tough, comfy, oh-so cute, and proudly worn by my boxer girl, Stella. Yes, even big dogs get cold! 😉
