Gift Ideas for Your Horse Trainer

Gift Ideas for Your Horse Trainer

How has your horse trainer helped to improve your riding this past year? Getting your horse trainer a holiday present is the perfect way to say thank you for all they’ve done to improve your riding and your relationship with your horse. But unfortunately, shopping for equestrian coach gifts can be tough. Gifts for horse trainers should be practical, but functional and fun. Whether it’s something to make their life at the barn easier or something to help them kick back and relax, the right gift can make your trainer’s day. 

We created this guide to gifts for horse trainers to make your life easy! 

A Designer Scarf/Shawl Combo

If you’re looking for an equestrian coach gift that has traditional style, but with a new practical format, you’ve found the perfect gift. Equestrian-themed scarves are making a comeback. This  AWST Int'l Acrylic Cashmere Snaffle Bit and Houndstooth Scarf combines the look of a classic equestrian silk scarf with the functionality and practicality of a shawl. Available in four different colors, this scarf/shawl features a houndstooth and paisley pattern with a border of bits. Made of acrylic cashmere, this scarf feels luxurious to the touch but is still an economical gift for horse trainers. 

Heavy-Duty Winter Jacket

Does your trainer teach lessons all winter long? Keep them warm with a heavy duty winter jacket. Your trainer will particularly appreciate this present if your barn doesn’t have an indoor arena. 

The  Equine Couture Ladies Any Weather 3-in-1 Jacket is a great option. Available in a rich navy blue, this jacket features a quilted inner layer and water resistant outer shell. Remove the inner layer and you have a lightweight rain jacket, or wear the inner layer on its own for another stylish option. Complete with plaid piping and a collarless finish, this inner layer can keep you warm and fashionable in the chilly Fall or Spring months. Wear both layers together for a water resistant and warm winter weather jacket.

Combo Gift for the Fashionable Horse Trainer

If you can’t decide what gifts for horse trainers to get, don’t force yourself to choose- make a quick and easy combination present! 

Start off with the  AWST Int’l Peach Toile Cosmetic Pouch. Then, pack this pouch full of smaller equestrian coach gifts. For example, the  Lettia Horses Running Nail File would fit neatly inside the cosmetic bag. So would this  Satin Scarf featuring traditional equestrian colors of hunter green and red, and a repeating English stirrup pattern. Finally, finish off this gift package with a sweet and simple leather bracelet featuring a gold-toned snaffle bit from AWST Int’l. 

Combined, this gift for horse trainers is perfect for those coaches who love to do their makeup before teaching lessons. 

A Place to Perch

If your trainer, like most horse trainers, has a hard time sitting back and relaxing and is instead constantly working, a comfortable and portable folding chair may be the best present for them. A high-quality folding chair gives them a place to perch while teaching lessons or coaching at horse shows, when they would otherwise have to stand all day. 

Jacks Imports Folding Chair would make a great gift for your horse trainer. The durable, yet lightweight, aluminum frame is convenient to bring to horse shows or to move around the barn as needed. With this present, your trainer will have a place to sit back and relax, whether they’re in the indoor or outdoor arena, or even in the tack room. Custom monogramming or embroidery is the cherry on top of this equestrian coach gift! 

Warm Winter Scarf

Most horse trainers spend a fair amount of their day in dusty arenas or even mucking stalls. But that’s no reason why you can’t give them a fashionable and practical gift. If your trainer loves all things fashion, but doesn’t get to wear her favorite stylish outfits, get her a winter scarf that will keep her warm at the barn and look good doing it. 

The  5/A Baker Scarf is one of many excellent equestrian gifts from this iconic brand. Made of double weave 100 percent cotton, this scarf features the classic Baker plaid pattern, complete with the red Baker logo and a soft fringe bottom.

An Accessory for a Night Out

Unfortunately, many trainers don’t get the opportunity to leave the farm and take a night off too often. That’s why a fashionable accessory for a night out could make the perfect equestrian coach gift! 

This  AWST International Snaffle Bit Plaid Poncho will look great, no matter where your trainer decides to go out for date night. Made of ultra-soft acrylic polyester, this poncho will level up their look whether fancy or casual. And, she won’t have to wait until the warmer months to wear this poncho– the thick fabric is sure to keep your trainer warm no matter the winter weather. Plus, it’s one-size-fits-all, so you don’t have to worry about picking the right size. 

For the ultimate gifts for horse trainers, pair this poncho with a gift card to a nice restaurant.
