Shopping for ladies can be… challenging. Shopping for horse ladies, well that is a whole other story. I’ve dug through countless websites to collect some of my favorite gift suggestions for that special horse-loving lady in your life. Whether you are shopping for a friend, a sister, a coach or a significant other, you can’t go wrong if it has to do with her best friend: her horse.
1) Let Her Rock Her Equestrian Style Every Day
I adore equestrian inspired details and love to toss them in my wardrobe every chance I get. This leather and metal snaffle bit necklace is a must-have for any lady who loves fashion and horses. What makes it even more neat is you can personalize the bracelet to fit the style of hte person you are shopping for thanks to a variety of leather and finish options. You can order this bracelet for $49.95 from ideana on Etsy.
2) A Little Laughter
Okay so this gift may not be appropriate for EVERYONE, but if you have a snarky equestrian in your life then you know they would love this coffee mug. The price-point (you can’t beat $14.99 for a customized present) makes it perfect for a quick gift for the barn staff or even a stocking stuffer for the one you love. So stir up a little laughter this holiday season and purchase this mug from the Ultimate Gifts Shop on Etsy.
3) Give the Gift of Personalization and Practicality
If your budget is a little more flexible this Christmas season, I highly suggest purchasing an item that will stand the test of time. The latest and greatest in show apparel will eventually fade out of style, but you can’t go wrong by investing in a quality cooler customized to your equestrian’s taste. Triple Crown has tons of options, but their Delmar Sports Cooler is the most affordable starting at $179.00. Practical and personal, what more could you ask for?
JN TIP: If you don’t know what size or colors to order, reach out to her trainer or barn friends to help you customize this blanket just right!
4) Cute and Functional Apparel
These SSG gloves are a great gift idea for the lady who does self-care board or keeps her horses at home. The mornings are bitter cold in the Midwest when I am out tossing hay, and these gloves are a total lifesaver! Tey are super stylish, they make a great work glove and you can ride in them as well! And at the $25 price range make these a great stocking stuffer or simple gift for the shopper on a budget.
5) Portable Power
If you like the idea of a super practical gift, then you will love this suggestion! Between filming our rounds to connecting with our trainers, equestrians use their phones a lot! It can be super tough at horse shows to find an available plug-in that isn’t all the way in Timbuktu which makes this Anker PowerCore power pack the PERFECT gift idea for an avid competitor. I have tried countless portable battery options for my phone and this is the only one I have been 100% satisfied with. It is super small, so it doesn’t take up too much room in my ring bag, and it charges lightning fast. Plus it holds a TON of battery life. I can usually get three full charges out of this thing before having to plug it in.
6) Fashionably Timeless
Hi my name is Meagan and I’m a purse-aholic. If there is one thing I have just as much of as I do horse stuff, its bags. My husband is constantly telling me to weed out my collection, but I just can’t let them go. If the lady in your life sounds like me, then I promise you she will LOVE this adorable crossbody bag by Tucker Tweed. Seriously the construction is so luxe. This is a premiere product tailored for the hunter jumper crowd which makes it such a great gift option. This is a bit more of an investment piece (the crossbody bag runs around $210 while other options can go up from there), but it is truly a stunning gift that will last for a lifetime.
7) Nameplates on Everything
I have said it in a past gift guide and I will say it again: equestrians like nameplates on everything! So why not capitalize on that and purchase an item we will use everyday? This traditional leather belt by EndlessEtcEngraving on Etsy is a perfect staple piece for the hunter jumpers wardrobe.
JN tip: If you don’t know what size belt the person you are shopping for wears, just snag one out of their closet and give it a measure to get the sizing right!
8) A Gift We All Need
A good ring bag is a necessity for the competitive equestrian and this one by Grand Prix checks off all the necessary boxes. Helmet storage? Check. Plenty of pockets? Check. A place to put your crop? (which doesn’t fit anywhere else, by the way). Check. This backpack keeps all of your ringside necessities perfectly organized, making it a great gift for someone who spends a lot of time on the show circuit.
So get out there and get to shopping! Keep an eye out for the rest of our gift guides all season long. If you have a product that you love and think would make a great addition to our gift guides, leave us a comment and let us know!
