The good thing about horse lovers, like most other enthusiasts or hobby hounds, is that there is almost always something they need or want when it comes to gifts that are related to their particular interest. While some love to have horses, others just enjoy a horse’s beauty from afar and through the things with which they decorate their homes. Here are some horse theme gift ideas for both kinds of horse lovers that might help you make a decision when picking out a special horse gift for your equine aficionado.
Riding lessons – This is a fantastic gift for someone who loves horses but hasn’t had much experience with them or who lives in the city and doesn’t have much access or availability to horses.
Saddle – Given, a saddle might not be the most exciting of gifts for a horse lover, but for someone who spends a lot of time riding, it might come in handy and be a very useful gift.
Riding gear – Your horse lover might really appreciate some new riding clothes. Riding gear might be just what they were looking for. You might even want to consider getting them a new pair of boots!
Grooming products – No, this gift isn’t for the person that’s actually receiving the gift, it’s for the horse! If your gift recipient has horses, grooming products could be the perfect horse gift for them.
Accessories – There are all sorts of different items a horse lover might need for their horses. Consider a nice blanket, sheet, or maybe even some boots or a fly mask.
A painting – If your horse lover isn’t exactly the hands on kind of person, they might enjoy a nice horse themed painting or print to enjoy in their living room or den.
Statue – If a painting isn’t the right route to go for a pleasant horse themed decoration, consider a statue as a gift for your horse fanatic.
Book(s) – A good book about having, raising, training, or breeding horses or a horse story like Black Beauty or The Black Stallion could be the perfect gift for someone that is really into horses.
DVDs – If your horse lover isn’t a big reader, another gift option might be a DVD about similar subjects.
Horse sitting – This is one of the more unique gift options for someone who actually owns a horse or horses. Horses can be a lot of work, and take a ton of time and effort to care for them if you are doing it yourself. If you are experienced in caring for these beautiful creatures, offer to fill in for your horse lover, giving them a bit of a break. No matter how much they might love their horses, a little vacation now and then could be greatly appreciated.
