People have been riding horses for millenia, making them one of our closest animal companions. That is why you will probably know somebody who is an equestrian or horse lover. They may ride horses or perhaps they like to care for them on the ground. Either way, horses are very important to them and take up part of their life.

If this is the case, it would be really nice to recognise your friend or family member's love of horses with a gift that tailored to this passion. There are loads of other people out there who also love horses and have created some beautiful gifts for those like them. All of the gifts on this list have been selected by equestrians for use by equestrians so you can guarantee that they will be loved by those you give them to.

Grooming Kit


One of the negatives of horse riding is that you must spend a lot on getting all of the kit you need to look after your horse properly.
