Putting together a stocking can be fun and frustrating! Finding small useful and thoughtful gifts for those that made a difference in your year can be even harder! It’s hard to put together stocking stuffer ideas for equestrians.
What better thing to put into a stocking but socks! Funky socks like those from Dreamers & Schemers are sure to put a smile on their faces. Otherwise, reserved horse-themed socks will keep toes warm too! Check out all the socks here.
2. Lip balm
Dry winter lips are definitely a problem for every trail rider, so by extension, lip balm is the perfect equestrian stocking stuffer. Even better when it is made by EcoLicious Equestrian, a Canadian manufacturer, with natural ingredients!
Accessories! What equestrian doesn’t love belts? Usually, they are hard to fit unless you know the person’s waist size, but thanks to C4 Belt’s unique design, they can be cut to measure. No more guessing! Best of all, these belts are washable, resistant, and have a cute, memorable horse of them!
4. ICE Clips
Nothing says I love you like giving gifts to keep a loved one safe and by extension their horse! These ICE Clips attach to a horse’s mane or tail or even tack to keep the identification on the horse in case that a rider and horse are separated on trail. The UltraLite is braided into the mane/tail and the Clip-on is used on tack. It is sure to be a unique and thoughtful gift while be useful.
5. Grooming Supplies
Unique grooming supplies are a fantastic stocking stuffer because they are versatile and take up just enough room in a stocking. These are great for tired hands that seize around the curry, getting dirt out of horse coats or lathering them up during bath time.
6. Riding Gloves
Equestrians go through gloves faster than most people! And who doesn’t love more gloves! Winter, summer, three-season gloves! You can have fun with all the choices for this particular stocking stuffer.
7. Paracord Bracelet
Paracord is the new bailing twine, but sturdier and comes in nicer colours. This bracelet made of paracord is the ultimate trail rider’s friend. It allows you to carry around roughly 7 to 8 feet of 550 lb paracord with you for those situations where you wish you had a length of rope. Whether it’s to tie a piece of broken tack back together, catch a horse, fix a rein and much more. The bracelet comes apart quickly, so you don’t have to mess around with knots in the middle of an emergency. They are sure to be a hit this winter as a stocking stuffer!
