Choosing a horse-related gift shows support for her.

You score big with your significant other when you buy a gift related to something they love. The present shows you know what she cares about. The gift doesn’t have to be expensive or for a special occasion. Gift-giving is an art that pays off. So here are some ideas for women who love horses.

Horse-related gifts can be something to make her life working around horses easier. Replace something old and worn out. Does she need a new engraved halter or lead rope for her horse? What about a saddle pad? The gift doesn’t have to be expensive to be appreciated.

Other good gift ideas include getting her something that she wouldn’t typically want to buy for herself. Has she mentioned a pair of boots she loves or riding pants but doesn’t feel comfortable spending money on herself?

Give her a gift that displays horses, something she can wear or carry with her displaying horses, a hoodie, or a mug. Buying a horse-related gift shows you care for and support her.


Kids that love horses also love boots.

For kids, boots are always a hit. Depending on your child’s age, Spirit-related toys are great. Our three-year-old granddaughter loves everything related to the kids’ show Spirit Riding Free and anything pink for her horse, like this leather halter.

Two of our grandchildren, ages six and four, like western wear, including spurs, boots, and cowboy hats.

Men who own horses typically appreciate useful presents

When it comes to gift-giving for a man, don’t go the conventional route of cologne or a wallet because it saves time and thought on your part.

Buy him something that shows you know what he likes and serves a particular purpose. Men typically don’t like things without a use unless some sentimental memory is attached.

Here are some ideas for the man in your life that is a horse lover: cowboy boots, saddlebags, or a new cowboy hat. Consider getting him an oilskin duster coat if you want to spend a little extra.

Buying a horse-related gift is a can’t miss for men that ride horses.

Boots make great gifts for horse lovers.

Boots need to be highly durable and comfortable. A quality pair of horseback riding boots can be a great gift that can last your horse lover for years and years. Click here to read our article on the best women’s boots for under $50.

FRYE Women’s Melissa Tab Tall Riding Boot

Frye is a high-quality boot maker. These are tall boots but don’t reach the knee. They are made with slick soles, which I like for riding, but are slippery for everyday walking.

Ariat Work Men’s Workhog Patriot Steel Toe

These are the boots I wear most often when working around the barn. The steel toes provide protection I’ve needed around horses but are still comfortable. They are not suitable for riding. My foot doesn’t pull out of the stirrup easily. Don’t buy these to use as everyday riding boots.

Gift ideas for anyone who loves horses.

If you can’t decide on anything, make a list of everything you think your equestrian may need or want and have put off buying for themselves. With your list in hand, go to brick-and-mortar stores.

Visit tack stores and talk to the salespeople. They are a great resource and can advise you and make product suggestions. Also, go to western clothing stores and check out the styles of boots available. If you still haven’t found the perfect gift, you can always buy a gift card.

Gift cards aren’t as personal as giving a gift, but they have their advantages. A gift card allows a person to choose precisely what they need.
