Horses are considered the marmite of the animal world; you either love them or not. There is little in the way of middle ground – you either are a horsey person or you are not.
Those who fall in the “are” category are typically known as being dedicated to their sport and their animals, with spare time and spare money being constantly spent on improving performance, purchasing equipment and clothing and paying stable and vets fees to keep you and your noble steed at the top of your respective games.
Why Buy a Horsey Gift
Basing a gift around a love or hobby is a tricky thing; even the most dedicated of people have varying degrees of affection and just because they term themselves a “horse lover” doesn’t mean they don’t want a foot spa once in a while.
That said, buying a person with a love of anything at all something which symbolises or reminds them of that love reminds them that the buyer put real effort into choosing their gift and did it with them specifically in mind, this in itself is almost impossible to do with a foot spa
What can you buy?
When it comes to horsey gifts the choices are simply endless; from books to outfits for both horse and rider to rosettes, to equipment, to calendars and desk accessories.
Thanks to the popularity of digital photography and computer technology it is also extremely popular to purchase personalised gifts in which the image of the horse and rider can be immortalised forever on a digital frame, tee-shirt, mug, key-ring, mouse mat and many more. These gifts are immensely accessible with many online and high street photography stores able to provide these quickly and at very reasonable prices.
In addition there is always the choice of horse ornaments, from such quality manufacturers as Beswick and Royal Doulton. Not only are these an immediately sophisticated choice but many keep their value and go on to become collectors’ items in time.
There is a huge wealth of gifts which tie in with the actual personality of the horse lover and then factor the love of the equine in as well.
