Christmas day is almost here and shoppers everywhere are busy grabbing last minute gifts for their loved ones. If you are a horse owner and want to give hints to your family, or maybe you are looking for the perfect gift for someone else, check out our equestrian gift guide. With gifts from £5 to £50, we have all the stocking fillers you need to keep your horse lover happy this holiday.
If there is one thing that all horse owners need in their stockings this Christmas, it is a handwarmer. Gloves are great, but when filling up water buckets and facing the elements, fingers soon become frozen. Hand warmers are inexpensive, and reusable making them indispensable on the yard. This is one stocking filler they will use for many months to come.
From name plates to numnahs, bracelets to bottles, why not treat the pony-mad person in your world to a personalised gift this Christmas. We especially love the idea of uploading a photograph to create a canvas for their wall, so even when they aren’t at the yard they can see their favourite horse all day, every day.
If you want to keep riding this Christmas then you need to make sure that you are seen. Frosty starts and misty mornings can be an incredibly dangerous combination for riders, especially when people are zipping around visiting family. Treat your loved ones to hi-vis gear such as reflective strips for bridles, flashing lights on stirrups and neon vests with their names on.
There is nothing nicer than a warm cuppa when you arrive at the yard or get back from a hack. Some stable yards boast their own electricity supply, but if your horse lover doesn’t have that facility then an insulated flask will be their best friend. Look out for equine designs to make them smile, and flasks with handles can be super helpful too.
Want a multifunctional gift? Why not get a hoof pick that doubles as a bottle opener for the horse lover in your life. Once you have finished your chores on Christmas day this fun festive gift will be just the ticket to open a bottle or two!
