Gift Ideas for Horse Lovers

Aug 1, 2008
If you have a horse lover in your family, there is a perfect gift out there for her. Here are some gift ideas sure to please anyone who shoes horses, rides them, or just adores the animals in general.

Some horse lovers don't have any direct involvement with the sport or animals. This means that items such as horse key chains, T-shirts and mugs might be most appropriate. You name it, and someone has put the image of a horse on it. If none of the novelty items fit the personality of the recipient, consider giving a book related to horses, or the DVD of a movie featuring horses, such as Seabiscut or National Velvet. A documentary relating to horses or horse racing might be appropriate as well.

You can also go "high end" with your horse-themed gift. Do a simple online search for artistic horse figures. Breyer Collectibles and Montana Silversmiths have quality horse statues and collectibles. You can also give figurines from Painted Ponies and Peter Stone Horses. Horse lovers often love this type of artistic gift, which reflects their hobby.

If you are giving your gift during Christmastime, give your horse gift a holiday twist. There are pony shaped holiday lights, horse tree ornaments, wreaths made of horse treats and a variety of other holiday-inspired horse gifts.

If your gift's recipient is involved in riding horses, it's a good idea to do some research and find out what style of riding they are involved in. There's a big difference between trail riding equipment and competition riding. Once you find out what kind of riding they are involved in, it will be easy to select a gift. Visit the local tack shop or online supply store to select something that is appropriate for her preferred style of riding.

There are many options available if the gift recipient has her own horse. A horse owner will welcome a personalized gift with his or her horse's name on it. For example, a monogrammed halter would be a terrific gift for a horse owner, as well as an engraved nameplate for the horse's stall. They will also enjoy gifts that they can use with their horse, such as grooming equipment and stall toys.

When all else fails, gift cards are much appreciated. You can get gift cards from most tack and feed stores and saddle shops. If there isn't one nearby, then you can buy a gift card from an online store that has equine equipment. This way you can give a flexible gift that shows that you took the time to think about the recipient's hobby.

Buying for a horse lover is quite simple when you open your eyes to see all the possibilities available. Whether you want to spend a little or a lot on a horse gift, there are a lot of options. So the next time you have a horse lover on your gift list, you'll know exactly what type of gift to go for.
