Buying a horse can be a cross between exciting and nerve-wracking for any first-timer. Even with all the expert horse-buying tips available, the process can still be an emotional rollercoaster. But when the perfect horse finally comes around, things will fall into place. Of course, this would be a special moment that deserves a celebration – and gifts!
If you’re thinking of giving a present to your friend or loved one who just brought their first horse, here are ideas you can explore:
With a hoof pick, it would be easy to clean the horse’s hooves, especially those tough to reach areas. Whether they’re in retirement or in their heyday as Grand Prix jumpers, their hooves can be kept clean and healthy with the help of this product.
You give treats to a new horse owner as you give a new neighbor a batch of cookies. The best treats are those made from natural ingredients, such as veggies and beef pulp, and they should come with zero added sugar or wheat. Also look into the shape of these foodies. Most probably, they’ll look like three-leaf clovers, which are easy to crack apart.
Big horse-grooming totes are unmatched for the task of holding a horse’s everyday essentials. Pick a bag with deep compartments, but not so much that you’ll end up with disappearing brushes. Also make sure there’s a pocket for everything.
A great gift you can give any horse owner is a custom-embroidered saddle pad.
It would be great to match the colors of the saddle pad to the stitching of the horse owner’s monogrammed initials, or the name of the horse. Don’t focus on the design though – in fact, fit and quality should be treated with more importance.
Horse tack and riding equipment are not only pricey, bu they need to be cleaned and stored property to last long. There are bridle bags with three loops for hanging halters or bridles, a satin lining which safeguards the leather, and a variety of styles to select from.
Horse Stress Ball
It is generally stressful for horses to move and adjust to a new home. For this , an equine stress ball can provide some relief. An equine stress ball is something horses can play with, helping them release all that nervous energy and stay distracted from anxious behaviors. On top of that, this toy isn’t only for playing, but it can also be eaten by the horse as a nutritious snack.
Finally, while unknown to many, quality clippers aren’t only good for grooming a horse but also for first aid. When you buy clippers though, look for versatility. For example, there should be inbuilt options for length adjustments and comb attachments, and rechargeable battery packs should be included in the kit.
