2020 has been a wild ride and 2021 is thankfully on the horizon!  But you know what that means?  That means panic buying all of your holiday gifts this year (most likely online) and hoping they all make it in time for the holidays!  Who knows where we will be in another month and if many of us will be able to visit our families this year, but we can put some thought into our gifts this year and hope for the best.  Here are some of my personal favorite gift ideas for the horse lovers (and horses…and dogs) in your life!  Some even have Black Friday deals (check for bold type)!

Happy holidays and happy shopping!


Gifts for the Rider

Horse Ornaments (lots of breeds and disciplines to choose from).  What screams the holidays like an ornament!  Get your trainer, child or barn friend an ornament this year that represents their favorite breed or discipline!

Get that Lust-Worthy Custom Boot Look with Boot Crowns - Review

Bootcrowns – custom boots for a fraction of the price.  I love this clever design to give tall boots a little more sparkle.  If a loved one is looking for custom boots and your budget isn’t there, this is a wonderful option.

Vintage Floral Brushes – I love these beautiful brushes.  I know of more than a few little girls that would love to have these in their tack trunk!


Spirit Horse Designs Review

Spirithorse Designs – gorgeous horsehair jewelry designs.  Seriously, these are just SOOO pretty and well done.   Great gifts for those who have recently (or not so recently) lost loved ones…or those that just want to wear their love around on their arm. <3


Draft Plates

Draft Horse Plates – looking for someone that loves switching up their interior design choices all the time?  What simpler way than a few new (very cool) plates!  I’m lusting after these myself!

Company Spotlight: The Infused Equestrian

The Infused Equestrian – there are several items from this company that make great stocking stuffers, however I particularly recommend their roller balls.  The @ the In Gate rollerball is absolutely amazing and any horsey friends with any show (or hell…lesson) anxiety will appreciate this one.  There’s a coupon code for Black Friday right now as well giving 30% off!  Use code: MY INFUSED DAY.

Equestrian Wellness Essential Helmet Spray Review

Equestrian Wellness – the Stable to City Wipes and Essential Helmet Spray are excellent stocking stuffers for any barn friend (or trainer…or groom)!  These are two of my favorites.   There’s even an option to order these as a pair!  The Rider Aide is great too!

Horses Adored and Men Endured by Susan Friedland – every horsewoman you know will enjoy this.  Seriously funny and sentimental all at the same time.  Great book!  Get for your barn BBF!


Her Summer at Pemberley Sallianne Hines Review

Her Summer at Pemberley by Sallianne Hines – know some one that loves Jane Austen and horses?  Here you go.  This fun and easy read is a great one to take you out of your current reality and into gorgeous dresses, stately homes and rides through the English countryside with gorgeous men! Who doesn’t love that?


Favorite Books for Every Equestrian

Jane Savoie That Winning Feeling by Jane Savoie – or anything by Jane Savoie.  I don’t care what your discipline is, you can learn something here.  Excellent and easy to read book to help you get the most out of your equestrian (or non-equestrian) life.  Great gift for any horse person!


Favorite Books for Every Equestrian

Brain Training for Riders by Andrea Monsarrat Waldo – like the one above, a must read for all riders!  Seriously…if you haven’t read it…read it.  It will help you be a better rider and help you understand what other riders around you are going through that have different hangups than you.  Must read for any horse rider.


2020 Holiday Gift Guide from Decidedly Equestrian

Dressage Unscrambled by Bill Woods – okay…if your recipient isn’t into dressage…this probably isn’t going to be a great book.  But for dressage nerds and horse trainers out there…this is going to bring a LOT of laughs (and great insight).  Great book.
