HOW TO PICK GREAT GIFTS FOR HORSE LOVERS

If you're a horse lover the ultimate gift you want is a horse or a pony even if you already have one or a few. But since you can’t always give a horse or pony to the horse lover in your life we have tons of different gift options. Whether the person you are shopping for is just a horse lover, an equestrian, a horse owner or a combination of these there are plenty of horse lover gifts for all events.


While the list up top has my personal favorites, there are plenty more gift options for a horse lover below, which also makes this a great resource if you are putting together a list of gift ideas you are wanting for your birthday, Christmas, Hanukkah, or any other holiday in which gifts are exchanged.

There is also a section on my favorite online discount riding apparel and used tack stores where you can find great savings!  

There are a ton of different ways to categorize gifts for horse lovers. You could come up with personalized gifts, inexpensive gifts, gifts for horse lovers who ride, gifts for horse lovers that own horses, etc. But I think the best way to divide up gifts for horse lovers is first into two main categories; personalized horse gifts and non-personalized gifts.

Personalized or customizable gifts for horse lovers have many pros and cons but let's look at the two main pros and cons.

Pros:

  • These gifts tend to be very thoughtful and therefore meaningful
  • You can give an unique or uncommon gift

 Cons:

  • They can be very specific and therefore hard to use if the situation changes*
  • Gifts that have been personalized or customized can be more expensive

 *What do I mean by if the situation changes in the cons section? Well, if you buy your horsecrazy friend, child, coworker, or whoever a gift with their horse’s name on it for example and they end up selling that horse they may not want that name on the gift anymore.  

From those categories, you can look at specific gifts for horse lovers, equestrians, and horse owners. The reason you need to separate horse lovers, equestrians, and horse owners is because someone who loves horses but doesn’t ride does not need the same gifts as someone who does ride. Likewise, the person who rides horses may not own one and therefore not need some of the care items a horse owner would need.  

Once you know what category the horse person you are buying a gift for belongs to you can better select a gift. If you have an idea of what you want to get the individual or yourself already feel free to click through to our horse jewelry, horse posters and pictures, horse bedding, riding helmets, horse collectibles, horse magazines, and horse books. But if you want more inspiration keep scrolling to see the lists of personalized and non personalized gifts I have put together for horse lovers, equestrians, and horse owners.

non-personalized horse gifts for horse lovers, equestrians, and horse owners

Non Personalized gifts:

Pros: 

  • These gifts tend to have lower prices compared to personalized or customized gifts
  • They don’t have anything on them that would make them ‘old’
  • You have more vendor options to buy from

Cons:

  • They may not be as meaningful or seem as thoughtful
  • May not seem as expensive or high-end
What non-personalized horse gifts make great gifts for horse lovers?

HORSE COLLECTIBLES

Breyer model horses, Trail of the Painted Ponies, Horse Whispers (new!) and Lenox horse collectibles make great gifts for girls who love ponies and horses. Not only are these collectibles beautiful but the creators have also often made these collectibles with certain memories behind them. This provides a deeper meaning to the horse collectibles that makes them great gifts for horse lovers. I have three horse collectibles that were given to me as gifts and they are something I will treasure forever.

HORSE POSTERS AND PICTURES

Don't you just love beautiful pictures of horses? Me too! I have so many horse posters in my room my mom says I am running out of space...but you can never have too many.  Horse posters have a huge range of options from just beautiful horses running across fields to horses on the beach with inspirational words. I have even put some of my favorite horse posters in frames. With all the options out there you are sure to find the perfect poster for your space!

See gorgeous horse posters here!

HORSE BEDDINGS

I never want to be separated from horses which is why I love horse-themed bedding.  Being able to sleep under a pretty comforter with horses on it always makes going to bed easier.  After all, how could you not have sweet dreams when you are surrounded by ponies and horses as you sleep! Plus pony-themed bedding comes in all different types of materials just like any other bedding so you can find something super comfy to sleep in.  I like to look for ones made from good quality cotton, polyester and other materials that are safe.

Pony bedding will surely brighten up a room. Check it out!

HORSE JEWELRY

Not only do I love horse jewelry because of how it reminds me of my favorite animal but also because it is a great conversation piece. When you wear equine jewelry people notice and start talking about your favorite thing - horses and ponies!

HORSE RIDING HELMETS

Ever since I have been riding horses, I’ve worn a riding helmet. My parents have always been adamant about it, and I’m glad they were because I have had my shares of falls.  There is a funny saying in the horse world that you aren’t a true rider until you have fallen off. Unfortunately, falls tend to be unpredictable and even the safest horse can spook. So to keep yourself protected it is best to wear a helmet. Anything can happen, and it’s better safe than sorry. Luckily for us there are a ton of fun cool helmets for every price range to choose from nowadays.

What about non-personalized gifts for horse owners?

HORSE TACK

HORSE BLANKETS

GROOMING SUPPLIES

STABLE SUPPLIES OR BARN SUPPLIES

Stable Supplies or Barn Supplies (such as Buckets, Pitchforks, Stall Guards, Fly Spray)

HORSE TOYS

Horse Toys (literally toys for horses)

TRAINING ITEMS

Training Items (such as Long Lines, Lunge Whip, Lunge Line)

BARN DECOR

Barn Décor (such as Signs, Organizers, Figurines)

In my opinion, the lower cost of non-personalized goods is a huge upside. Plus, the individual you give the gift to can always get an item personalized with something like embroidery if they want it. Additionally, savings on non-personalized gifts are even bigger when you shop used or overstock horse items, equestrian apparel, and more. Some of my favorite sellers of used or discounted horse tack/equestrian apparel are The Tried Equestrian, Tack Tack Room, We Heart Horses, and The Tack Hack.

DISCOUNT AND USED HORSE TACK, EQUESTRIAN APPAREL, AND BARN ITEMS

Tried Equestrian has perhaps the smallest inventory of all the other sites. Many of the categories on the website have very few to no items for sale. However, they really cater to high end items so when they do have items they tend to be very nice. Additionally, they tend to have really good equestrian apparel items and they tend to keep these items in stock.

Tack Tack Room has perhaps the widest range of inventory of all the websites, most likely because it is individuals listing items. This means that if you are looking for a more specialty item this will probably be the place you will find it. That being said, there is usually only one of whatever item is being sold so you have to pick items up quickly. But because it is individual, sellers prices tend to be better.  

We Heart Horses tends to have lower cost items for sale compared to The Tried Equestrian and The Tack Hack. However, they also tend to have less of the higher end/name brand equestrian items compared to The Tried Equestrian and The Tack Hack. I also find their inventory to not be as comprehensive overall compared to all the other secondhand/discount horse tack and equestrian apparel sites.   

The Tack Hack tends to offer really good deals on their website and they usually have a big selection to choose from. This company also focuses on higher end items and brands. While there are not many specialty items on the website, the company does appear to buy somewhat in bulk because you can often buy multiples of an item. Overall, this is probably my favorite equestrian discount website. 

I have only bought stuff from The Tack Hack and Tack Tack Room and I have only sold items through Tack Tack Room. However, my experiences with both of these companies were great.

If you are in the U.S. and need riding clothes/boots but can’t afford them, The Rider’s Closet gives away items for free. You will have to fill out a form to send in and they often have limited stock so you might have to wait a while. But still, to get nice riding clothing for free, that is definitely worth the wait.
