To buy good gifts for an equestrian is hard, especially if you’re not a horse lover yourself.  There are many very good websites out there that will give you plenty of ideas, but it’s not a quick project.  Most equestrians will appreciate the fact that you have thought about their horse or what it wears (rather than themselves) so saddle pads, horse treats, new brushes, could go down better than gloves, belts, or socks.  Not putting those things in the shade, however, as yard work and riding can often mean huge wear and tear on these items.

If your budget is bigger than average, and you know the size of your giftee and their horse, then riding boots, hats and show jackets can be very well received; and rugs, ropes and headcollars, or specialised stirrups can make an equestrian very happy indeed.

One of the most imaginative of gifts for a horse lover are products from the Horseshoe Hearts & Gifts collection.  The Horseshoe Fairy Door is entirely unique in that it’s made from an Egg Bar shoe, with two clenches for old fashioned hinges, and the top of a clench for the door knob.  It even has its own tiny good-luck horseshoe as the knocker. You simply attach it to the bottom of a favourite tree in the garden for instant magic.  

For those that love al fresco dining and entertaining, this bottle and wine glass holder can’t be overlooked – imagine impressing your friends with this masterpiece! Horseshoe Hearts and Gifts actually hand-make beautiful, rustic gifts and homeware items, forged from real horseshoes.  They can personalise gifts by using your own horse shoes come can be engraved too, making it all the more special.
