Practical Gift Ideas for Equestrians

While I always appreciate a beautiful piece of jewelry or a unique decor item, I have to admit that what I really excited about are practical gifts for equestrians.

There’s nothing more satisfying than giving a gift that will be used on a daily basis, or something that will make life with horses easier and perhaps, more comfortable.

These ideas are perfect for any non-horse people (ie. spouses!) that aren’t comfortable picking out tack or equipment for the rider in their life. Here is a list of my favorite practical gift ideas for equestrians:

Quality Outerwear

Even when my horses are boarded at a cozy, heated barns I still end up regularly venturing into the cold and/or muck. And when they’re kept outdoors that’s just a given!

No matter what your climate every rider will appreciate quality gloves, boots and coats.

My favorites are these SSG Winter Rancher Gloves, any Mountain Horse Riding Boots, and Ariat coats (I’ve been drooling over the H2O Cold Series Waterproof Jacket).

As much as I love a quiet, interruption-free afternoon at the barn I always keep my phone with me.

Not only is it convenient, especially when you have kids or a busy schedule, but I feel much more secure knowing I could call for help if needed.

I like this Smart Phone Armband,which keeps my phone with me while I ride, and not attached to my horse or saddle!

Boot Care Kit

Despite the huge amount of money I’ve spent on riding boots, I’m ashamed to say they are often neglected. At best they usually get a quick wipe down, and it’s starting to take its toll.

To get show ring ready a care kit is perfect for maintain (or restore) leather boots. This handy Boot Care Kit contains everything you need.
