Horse Trainer Christmas Gift Guide
Our horse trainers are incredible. They work with us all year round, inspiring, coaching, and feeling our every win or loss. As Christmas time approaches, you might be looking for meaningful holiday gifts to show your appreciation for your trainer. We’ve compiled some of our favorite items that we know your trainer will love.
If you need help picking out a specific gift for your trainer, a gift certificate is a great idea and opens up all sorts of options. This lets them choose exactly what they would like or need. Here are some ideas for gift certificates:
- Spa or Nail Salon
- Coffee Shop
- Tack Shop
- Feed Store
Hay & Grain
Winter is a slower time for most horse trainers, with weather and holidays slowing down riding lessons. One way to help with this burden is to pay for all or part of the monthly feed bill. As you know, feed bills can be pretty expensive. You might want to ask other boarders or riders at the barn to contribute to a feed fund.
Most horse trainers work long days! When they aren’t ready to cook, meal delivery could be a huge relief. You can order meal kits from companies like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh. These kits can be customized to dietary restrictions and eating preferences. If you love to cook, you can make the meals yourself and deliver them to your trainer.
The Mackey Bee Mine Equestrian Backpack is a trainer favorite!
With all the gear needed at a horse show, traveling, or school, a new backpack is convenient. There are many trending patterns and colors to fit every personality. Most backpacks feature adjustable straps, whip holders, water bottle pockets, adjustable helmet slings, and large interiors for other horsey items. For Dressage and English riders, purchase a backpack that fits tall boots.
Seasonal horse treats are a great way to embrace holiday vibes. Canterbury Horse cookies come in a variety for every season and are sure to be a barn favorite. These chewy treats are made with wholesome ingredients, including bran, molasses, oats, and flax, for a silky coat.
Fun Coffee Mugs
Coffee is a must in almost every horse barn! Get your trainer a fun mug to make them smile with every sip! The “Barn is Calling, and I Must Go” large ceramic mug will keep horses on your mind all day long. Or, if your trainer prefers a southwestern vibe, our Ranch Dress’n Tumbler is a perfect alternative.
A Bit of Self-Care
Give your trainer the gift of self-care with scented candles, cozy slippers, and a new book. It’s hard for trainers to find time for themselves with a barn full of horses, riders, and the holidays. Spending an evening decompressing and relaxing can be one of the best gifts you can give!
