Is there a man in your life who rides horses? Whether it’s your husband, son, brother, or best friend, it can be hard to find the perfect present for male equestrians. Many tack stores cater to the majority of equestrians, who happen to be female. But when it comes to gift ideas for horse lovers, we have a large variety of horse gifts for men all in one convenient spot on Breeches.com.
Breeches for Around the Barn
Men’s breeches tend to be few and far between. This limited selection makes it difficult to find a great pair of breeches for working around the barn on cold winter days. Luckily, our in-house brand, TuffRider, came out with the Men’s Patrol Unifleece Breeches so your man doesn’t have to spend winters at the barn with cold legs!
The TuffRider Patrol Unifleece Breeches are lined with soft faux fleece for extra insulation to keep him warm all winter long. Made from a spandex blend, these breeches combine the best of both worlds: warm breeches and freedom of movement. The silicone knee patches offer extra grip in the saddle for those winter mornings when the horses are really feeling their oats. Plus, contoured sock bottoms create a seamless fit under riding boots and half chaps.
If he lives in sunnier areas of the United States where cold days don’t drop below 60 degrees, the FITS Hudson Breeches are a great horse gift for men.
These knee patch breeches are made from four-way stretch fabric so he can muck stalls and ride horses in comfort. The silicone knee patches are unique due to their shoe-tread technology, which ensures you’ll stay secure in your tack all day long.
Breeches for the Show Ring
At upper levels of equestrian sport, the demographics flip and you start to see more male equestrians in the show ring. But, the selection of men’s breeches still remains limited! If you have a male equestrian in your life who loves to compete, a pair of high-quality competition breeches is the perfect horse gift for men.
The TuffRider Oslo Breeches are the perfect competition breeches, making them an ideal gift for horse lovers. Made from a technical blend fabric, these breeches wick moisture away from the body to keep him cool, while still allowing for ultimate freedom of movement. Contoured sock bottoms fit comfortably underneath tall boots and silicone knee patches add extra grip in the saddle. Available in Safari tan and white, these breeches will make him look at home in both the hunter and dressage ring.
If the male equestrian you’re shopping for prefers a little bit of a tighter fit, the Horze Grand Prix Breeches are an excellent gift idea for your horse lover. The combination of polyamide and Lycra fabric creates breeches that are strong, durable, and comfortable with just enough stretch to offer freedom of movement with a supportive fit. Plus, these breeches are water and dirt repellant! If you’re looking for horse gifts for men that are practical and functional, these breeches are it.
Jeans that Work as Hard as He Does
Horseback riders work hard. When you need gift ideas for horse lovers that work as hard as he does, look no further than a great pair of durable denim jeans. While an untraditional horse gift for men, jeans are practical, functional, and, most importantly, will be highly appreciated.
The Kimes Ranch Raw James Jeans make a great horse gift for men, as the untreated, raw denim will uniquely wear to their shape to create a one-of-a-kind pair of jeans. The integrated knife pocket is the perfect addition for the outdoorsmen in your life. Made from Ring Spun denim, these jeans have greater tensile/tear strength than most other brands.
If you’re looking for gift ideas for horse lovers that are a little less expensive, check out the Wrangler Cowboy Cut Jeans.

Like all signature Wrangler jeans, these jeans include signature five-pocket styling, a neolite patch, and the classic ‘W' stitching on the back pocket.
Riding Boots Designed for Him
The perfect horse gifts for men are those he wouldn’t buy for himself. If the person you’re shopping for has been riding in the same pair of boots for a bit too long, the holidays are the perfect time to buy him that new pair he so desperately needs.
For male equestrians who ride English, it can be difficult to find a pair of great tall boots for men. That’s what makes the TuffRider Men’s Belmont Dress Boot a great gift idea for horse lovers. These boots are an elegantly styled dress boot made from supple leather that’s easy to break in and will mold to the rider’s leg for a custom fit and look. The Spanish top and round toe offer a traditional style that many equestrians will appreciate. Last but not least, this horse gift for men provides all day comfort thanks to the contoured ankle and memory foam foot bed.
If you’re looking for Western gift ideas for horse lovers, the TuffRider Grand Canyon Western Boots could be just the ticket. This horse gift for men features cow-aged bark leather that is designed to stand up to intense daily use. The v-notched topline and unique design on the shaft looks at home for a night out on the town, while the wide square toe means these boots provide all-day comfort for hours spent ranching in the sun. Plus, handy pull straps means these boots are convenient to slip on and off at a moment’s notice.
Horse Gifts for Men: Stocking Stuffers
We can’t forget about stocking stuffers when we’re talking about gift ideas for horse lovers! These small gifts will fit perfectly inside a stocking or will round out a larger present nicely.
First on our list is the Roper Crazy Horse Wallet. This distressed leather wallet is passcase style, meaning that it has a single fold and two flaps, leaving lots of room for cards, IDs, and money. A rich dark brown leather, this wallet features a floral tool sanded overlay that adds just enough flair to stand out, while still looking manly.
Or get him a new pair of spur straps, like the Circle Y Filigree Inlay Spur Straps. These straps feature walnut filigree-tooled leather with eye-catching painted accents. Not only do these straps look good, but they’re long-lasting and durable thanks to their double ply construction and sturdy stitching.
