Oh wow, this Patent halter in brown with silver piping is divine! Padded in the poll and nose, it even has a noseband buckle to make slipping it on and off super simple. The stainless steel double buckle on the headpiece allows a better fit. You can even order custom nameplates for these, but they won’t be ready in time for Christmas, unfortunately.

You’ve seen these on social media, haven’t you? I would be overjoyed if Santa slipped a pack of Quick Knots into my stocking this year. They are the new must-have tool for achieving professional, competition plaits without stitching. Quick Knots are currently available in black, brown or grey.

Just like pony camp, but for grown-ups. Take your girlfriends and horses away for a one night stay at the picturesque Gatehouse Cottage at Brookleigh Estate. Your getaway includes access to the cross country course and indoor arena, as well as a bottle of wine for an outing to remember. Wouldn’t it be marvellous to find a Brookleigh accommodation voucher under the tree this year?

Made right here in Australia, Feel Good Inc. sunscreens have been tried and tested (on humans, not animals!) to withstand our harsh sun. Best of all, they are preservative, PABA and paraben free so you can consciously feel good about using them.

A little elf told me that this brush is the secret to a winning show ring shine. Even if you don’t compete, who wouldn’t want such a fine looking brush in the grooming kit? Made of beautifully grained natural beechwood with extra-long horse hair bristles and a leather strap, this brush is flexible and soft. The ergonomic design sits in your hand perfectly – something both you and your horse will appreciate.

Epona Sun Sleeves are such a great idea for protecting your arms from the sun while riding. The tech fabric feels cool and comfie, and they’re a cinch to take off easily when you’re back at the stables. One size fits most in White, Navy, Light Blue or Beige. No famer’s tan for you!
I hope you agree that these fabulous equestrian pressies would be a thrill to give – and even more awesome to receive. May all your Christmas wishes come true!
