If you have a horse lover to buy for this Christmas there are hundreds of gift ideas to choose from.
Practical presents to aid in their chosen pursuit, interesting books to learn new ideas from or unrelated items such as diaries and pencil sets decorated with pony pictures – the list goes on.
Here are a few of the best bargains around:
1) Magic horse bath towel. This pretty patterned bath towel has a spotty pink design with a picture of two horses in the centre. Not only that but it comes in a surprisingly small package – when you soak it in water for the first time it grows to its actual size. Children who love horses and surprises will delight in this magical pony present.
2) Horse-Opoly board game. A new twist on the classic property purchasing game. The rules are the same as in the original version but the whole game has a horsey theme. The playing pieces are all different types of horse and players battle it out to purchase the biggest and best stables in order to win the game.
3) Horse backpack. For younger pony enthusiasts, you can’t go wrong with a fluffy horse backpack. Its adorable design lets it double as a soft bedtime friend and during the day lets everyone know just how horse-mad the recipient really is.
4) Riding gear. Having all the proper clothing to go horse-riding in is a must but can end up being quite pricey if you don’t know where to shop. Get your loved ones some classic dressage gear on equestrianclearance.com so they can really look the part without you or them having to break the bank.
5) Adopt a horse. For a gift that keeps on giving all year, why not adopt a horse or pony on behalf of your loved one? For a set fee every month you can set your chosen recipient up as a ‘foster parent’ for a horse, pony or donkey living in a rescue sanctuary. These animals have been saved from mistreatment and need financial aid to allow them to live out the rest of their lives in peace and safety. For as little as £12.50 for the full year your recipient will receive monthly updates on their horse, including photographs and personalised letters. They will also be issued an open invitation to visit the sanctuary in person at any point during the adoption period.
