1. Wooden Horse Heart Sign
A unique gift for horse lovers
A horse lover is a person who loves horses. The love he or she has for these animals is what defines him or her. As such, a wooden horse heart sign that proudly showcases this emotion would make a wonderful horse present. Not only is such a sign a thoughtful horse-themed gift, but it is also a graceful horse decoration idea.
You can also choose a metal heart and horse head wall art. If you are looking for a personalized horse gift for a person who is lucky enough to own a horse, you can buy a custom horse heart sign instead.
2. National Parks Pass
Horse riding gifts
Give them the gift of the great outdoors. Many national parks have horse trails. The national parks pass allows the driver of a vehicle, plus the passengers, park admittance to each national park all year. This is a great way to experience nature whether on horseback or not.
Many places offer tours on horseback such as the Jackson Hole horseback riding tour. They can explore the Tetons on horseback during this 90 minute journey. Longer tours are available as well.
For an unforgettable experience, send them on a Red Rock Canyon horseback ride and BBQ. They can explore the trails like the cowboys, experience the colorful desert sunset, and see the Vegas lights after dark. Afterwards they will feast on a good old fashioned BBQ dinner, just like in the old west. This captivating excursion provides the perfect break for those visiting the hustle and bustle of Vegas.
3. Etched Wine Glass
Horse gifts for adults
Whether celebrating their horse’s championship or just relaxing after a long day, these etched glasses provide added elegance for their wine.
For an unforgettable gift, give them a horseshoe wine rack to store their bottles.
Looking for a hostess gift for a horse lover? Choose a special bottle of vino along with a horse wine stopper. This gift will live on long after the wine is gone.
4. Customizable Horse Ranch Sign
A stylish gift for horse owners
Every lucky horse owner that has his very own horse ranch deserves to have a personalized horse ranch sign that will proudly display their name and showcase what their farm (and life) is all about. I bought one of those signs for my friend a few years ago and brought the proud and touched owner to tears with it. Therefore, I can guarantee that such a sign would make a wonderful horse present.
Alternatively, you can also buy a custom horse sign or a rustic country box sign.
5. Horse Neck Warmer
A cuddly horse gift
A full-blown horse enthusiast would want to spend most of his time in a stable petting his or her horse. Given that’s not entirely possible, giving your horse-loving friend the opportunity to pet a horse even at work, in the car, and in the comfort of his or her own living room, would be a dream come true.
Therefore, you can buy your friend a therapeutic horse neck warmer or a simple horse plushie. Both a tiny or a large stuffed horse would make a lovely and cuddly horse present.
6. SaddleBox Subscription Box
A superb gift for horse owners
If you are looking for a great equestrian gift for a horse rider or owner, then a subscription box full of goodies for both the horse and its owner is probably one of your best bets! You can buy your beloved horse enthusiast a 1, 3, 6, or 12-month subscription to a gift box containing all kinds of equine-approved gourmet horse treats, grooming tools, and horse-related gifts for the owner. And the best part about this gift is that all sales support horse rescues, shelters, and adoption centers across the country.
Alternatively, you can try the Cavali Club subscription box or the High Point Ready subscription box.
7. Horse-themed Board Game
A fun horse gift
There is a surprising amount of horse-themed board games to be found online. And while a horse-themed board game may not enable your horse-loving pal to do what he or she most loves doing in life – grooming, petting, or riding horses, it will enable them to spend some quality time with their human friends while still thinking and talking about horses, which may be the next best thing.
Some of the most popular horse-themed board games include Horseopoly, Fantasy Ranch board game, and Horseracing Game, which would make a great horse racing gift.
8. Custom Horse Painting
A thoughtful and unique equestrian gift
A great painting of any majestic horse is always a beautiful horse present. However, if the receiver is lucky enough to have a horse of her/his own, then the best gift for your horse lover would be a custom painting of her/his favorite animal friend.
You can choose a dreamy watercolor custom painting or a portrait of the horse and its owner, which would make an amazing horseback riding gift and a wonderful horse memorial gift.
9. Horse Themed Bedding
Horse gifts for bedroom decor
What horse lover wouldn’t want a comfy throw blanket or a bedding set decorated with these majestic creatures?
You can also add to the theme with horse curtains and an area rug. Even if they can’t have a real horse, they will love being surrounded by these images of their favorite animals.
10. Horse Necklace
A lovely horse gift for girls
What do you get a horse girl for Christmas or her birthday? Well, a charming piece of horse-themed jewelry would be a nice horse gift for teenage girls (as well as pre-and post-teen girls). We girls, love to frost ourselves with little symbols of our favorite animals, concepts, and things, just to show the world a little part of our identity.
A horse necklace with the girl’s initials would make a lovely personalized horse gift. Alternatively, you can also choose a pendant necklace of a girl embracing a horse or perhaps a lucky horseshoe necklace for good fortune.
11. LED Horse Night Light
A cool gift for horse lovers
A true horse lover would spend most of his time in a stable. But since that’s simply impossible, horse enthusiasts tend to decorate their homes with horse-themed decor and other horse items, which can instantly put a smile on their faces. As such, an LED horse night light would make a really cool gift for horse lovers.
You can choose an elegant multicolor LED horse night lamp or give your friend a 3D illusion horse night light.
12. Horse Mug
A beautiful or funny gift for horse lovers
A cup of hot coffee or tea in the morning from a beautiful horse mug would set the right tone for the day. In fact, a big horse enthusiast would consider it the best start of the day.
You can either go with a beautiful mug with a watercolor print of a running horse, a mug with a cute baby horse inside it, or a lovely ‘I’m just a girl who loves horses’ mug, which would make a great gift for girls who love horses. A funny ‘In my head I’m riding my horse’ mug, on the other hand, would make a humorous horse riding gift.
You might want to take a look at gifts for lovers of other animals too!
13. Custom Engraved Horse Grooming Kit
A practical gift for horse owners
Are you wondering “What should I get my equestrian for Christmas or his/her birthday”? How about a custom engraved horse grooming kit? These kinds of kits tend to include all sorts of brushes, picks, and combs that enable the proud owner to pamper his majestic animal friend to optimal well-being and beauty. As such, this gift is very useful. The lovely custom engraving, however, gives it that sentimental personal touch.
If the owner values functionality over sentiment, you can also buy them a premium 7-piece grooming kit or a deluxe 10-piece wooden set.
14. Disney Carriage Ride Through Ft. Wilderness
Disney horse experiences
Disney is more than just a theme park. Families can feel like they are in the old west by taking a carriage tour through Fort Wilderness, one of the Disney resorts.
Horseback rides are also available at the Circle D Ranch at Fort Wilderness. Kids and adults over 48” tall can experience a 45 minute trail ride. There are pony rides for smaller kids. They can also visit Cinderella’s royal horses during their trip. Pony rides are booked on site.
For a change of scenery, they can take a carriage ride at Port Orleans Resort instead. This excursion is a 25 minute relaxing ride along the river.
15. Horse Book
An educational gift for horse lovers
There is nothing more important for horse owners than to fully understand their favorite animal friends – to connect with their thoughts, emotions, and needs, simply to make sure their beloved pets are as satisfied and happy as the owner. As such, most horse owners and horse lovers would love to read a great book or two about horses and to learn more about these graceful animals.
The best-selling Horse Encyclopedia, The Ultimate Guide to Caring for and Riding Horses for Kids, and the Horse Bible would all make a valuable and educational gift for horse lovers.
16. Horse T-Shirt
A useful horse gift
What to gift someone who loves horses? That’s easy! A simple shirt with horses on them will do! We all need clothes and while buying a person a random one-color shirt may not be a very impressive gift, a T-shirt with a majestic horse design or a cool horse-related quote may be a very special gift for a person who is very much into horses.
For your female horse-loving friend, you can choose a lovely ‘Just a girl who loves horses’ tee or a personalized one with a custom drawing of her and her horse. Your male friend, on the other hand, might love a 3D-printed horse T-shirt.
17. Horse-themed Himalayan Sea Salt Lamp
A zen gift for horse lovers
Nowadays, everybody is way too stressed out – even the people who spend most of the time in a stable (and thus should be stable). To help your horse-loving pal destress, create a zen atmosphere and a peaceful environment, you can buy him or her a horse-themed Himalayan sea salt lamp, which would surely make a lovely gift for horse lovers.
Alternatively, you can buy them a set of horse string lights or a metal horse lantern light.
18. Personalized Horse Keychain
A cute horse-themed gift
Virtually any horse-related gift would make the best gift for any horse lover. As such, a simple personalized horse keychain could actually make a sentimental gift that would put a big smile on the person’s face every time he or she sees it. Not only would it remind him or her of her favorite animal on Earth, but it would also remind them of the fact that they have a great friend who is thoughtful enough to know exactly how to make them happy.
Choose a simple personalized horse head oval keychain or a metal one featuring a horse charm, a blessing, the receiver’s initials, and birthstone.
19. Horse Barbie Set
Toys for horse lovers
I remember my best friend being infatuated with horses. While she never owned a real horse, we would have hours of fun playing with her toy horses. This Barbie horse set will spark children’s imaginations.
For kids who like building, a Lego Friends Horse set will give them a chance to put those engineering skills to the test.
Or give them Melissa and Doug horse stables. They can create their own horse show. I wonder which one will take the blue ribbon?
