If you have a horse lover in your life, consider yourself lucky! Equestrians are the easiest people to shop for during the holidays. A perk of giving something to the rider in your life is that you are helping two creatures. The receiver is excited to get an item they will enjoy and the horse gets to use the gift as well. Here are just a few present ideas:
Tack attack! Shower your horse lover with a new saddle or bridle. Many equestrians have an affinity for beautiful tack (I know I do!). If you can talk to the receiver slyly, you might be able to find out what type of tack they need/want. You should make sure you find a way to figure out the horse’s size for the piece of equipment.
Custom Halters or Nameplates for Halters
There are leather workers that make custom halters. Many will use the colors you want and will include the animal’s name. This option can be a bit pricey. Alternatively, you can get a nameplate engraved at most local tack shops and put on a leather or nylon halter. This option is one of the best for those who keep their horse at a boarding barn. It is easy to mix up halters at big stables.
Grooming supplies are important when you own a horse. An owner may use these items every day so, eventually, they can become broken or worn out. If you get them a brush or hoof pick, they will think of you every time they use it.
Nothing makes a stable cozier that having nameplates on stall doors. There are many small business owners who make these signs. They can vary from having names painted on them, to having designs burned into them, to having important phone numbers written on them. So, get to shopping!
This concludes this holiday segment. Please continue to part two of the list for more ideas!
