Valentine’s Day Gifts for Horse Lovers

Looking for a gift for the equestrian in your life? Here are 14 ideas to get you started.


Heart Horses
To the non-equine obsessed, horse people may seem like a tough bunch to buy for. Any gift-giving holiday could incite panic as many riders are not the typical flowers-and-fancy-clothes sort—but buying something to knock their socks off shouldn’t be hard (or cost you an arm and a leg).

So, if you’re looking for something for your favorite horsey friend, for your horse-loving sweetie or if you’re the horse person and would like to drop some hints, here are some great ideas for Valentine’s Day gifts.

    1. Personalized Pendant
      This classy, ¾-inch pendant can be custom designed to look like your favorite equine love. Personalized gifts garner extra points!
    2. Customized Correspondence
      Personalize your thoughts with an equestrian flair! This 10-pack of monogrammed cards even lets you choose a custom color choice for your initials.
    3. Tasty Treats
      Your favorite steed would love to get a little something sweet for Valentine’s Day. With a variety of offerings, one is sure to lead the way to your horse’s heart. Try Paddock Cakes or Charleigh’s Cookies (or make your own!)
    4. Coral Colored Wellies
      Many horse people are anxiously awaiting the arrival of spring, but there’s nothing quite like bright pink Wellies to make a grey, February day seem a bit more bearable.
    5. Sweets for the Sweet
      Chocolates are always in season, and they’re even better if they’re horse-themed!
    6. 14 Hands Wine
      Set the stage for a lovely dinner with a uniquely named wine. Available in Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Moscato, there’s something for every wine lover in your life.
    7. Horsey Handbags
      Show your passion for horses even when you’re not at the barn with an awesome equine-themed handbag. Handmade in a variety of patterns and shapes, PonyUP! bags benefit retired and rescued horses in need.
    8. Custom Stall Plaques
      A beautiful stall plaque is always much appreciated, but many horse owners won’t spend the money one themselves. Available in every material from wood to plastic and with the ability to include custom graphics, it’s one gift that’s sure to be popular for years to come.
    9. Personalized Phone Case
      Many people have their phones on them 24/7, so what better way to be reminded of your horse than to see him each time you answer a call or text?
    10. Browbands with Bling
      Make the equine love of your life feel even more special with a made-for-him browband to highlight his sweet face.
    11. Special Spurs
      Up the “wow” factor when your Valentine rides into the show pen with a pair of custom spurs. Your choice of rowel, finish, engraved button color and initial font.
    12. Custom Crops
      Ensure that your horse-loving friend never loses her riding crop again! With choices of color, thickness, length and flex, the perfect crop is attainable!
    13. Nicker Stickers
      Show the world that your barn buddy is a horse lover even when she’s not hauling a trailer with a custom window sticker. With everything from breed and discipline to custom-made decals, there’s something for every horse lover in your life.
    14. Picture Frames
      Last but not least, every horse person has hundreds of pictures of ponies on their smart phone and tablet. Encourage them to print some out and display them with a unique equine frame.

No matter what you get your sweetie or your barn buddy (both two- or four-legged) for Valentine’s Day, it’s sure to be a hit as you took the time to appreciate their equestrian endeavors.

  1. Cushion, or how arena horse footing receives a shock, is crucial for creating top sports performance in dressage competitions. When the sand, additives, and other ground materials are too compact, the horse plants its entire weight during the landing and loading phases. No cushion reverses upward shock in support of the dressage horse, creating room for injury.
