Have you started shopping for the holidays yet? If you have a horse crazy kid in your life, it can be difficult to figure out what to get them- especially if you aren’t familiar with horses yourself. We’ve put together a list of ideas for horse gifts for tweens for any budget. Whether the equestrian you know rides Western, English, or is just horse obsessed, you’ll find the perfect gift on this list.
The perfect stocking stuffer, these mini figurines are modeled after traditional fan favorites like the Fighting Stallion and Connemara Mare. The added mystery element will leave your young rider guessing until the very last minute. In honor of Breyer’s 70th anniversary, this assortment of eight new Stablemates® includes two unique chase pieces.
The perfect horse gift for tweens who love to paint and craft, these clear suncatcher stablemates come with special translucent paint. When hung in the sun, they sparkle and catch the sunlight, just like a suncatcher! This gift isn’t just something to sit on the shelf, but a fun activity for a growing horse lover to do by themselves or with their parents.
Let your horse crazy kid bring the barn to school with them. Featuring a minimalist silver-plated horseshoe on a black cord, this handmade bracelet adds a touch of equestrian to any outfit. Stylish enough for an older tween to wear to school, but rugged enough for a younger horse lover, it would be an excellent addition to any holiday celebration.
Whether the equestrian you’re shopping for has a horse of their own or rides a local barn’s lesson horses, they’ll appreciate a set of their very own brushes. This gift comes with a stiff bristle brush, flex finishing brush, tail and mane brush, hoof pick, comb, and sweat scraper-- everything they could ever need to take the dirtiest pony from muddy to sparkling. Just add elbow grease!
This is an especially good horse gift for tweens who have their own horse or pony or who ride one horse consistently. As a leather safety halter, it’s designed with a replaceable leather crown piece that will break if the horse is trapped, panics, or pulls back. Unlike other leather halters, it also has nylon webbing that comes in a variety of fun colors like Multi Neon, Turquoise, Hot Pink, and more.
Are you shopping for a horse gift for a tween that you don’t know that well? For situations where sizing and other details may be hard to get, C4 Belts are a great present. These belts offer fully customizable sizing and are cut to size by the end user. Parents have the option of leaving additional length so the child can grow into the belt as well. They come in a wide variety of patterns and colors; many have equestrian-inspired sayings such as “Heels Down.”
The holidays are the perfect time of year to buy the horse lover in your family a pair of winter breeches. Pull-on breeches are even better as the sizing tends to be more flexible. Complete with a fleece lining, these winter breeches are designed to keep young riders comfortable and warm while allowing for full freedom of movement thanks to spandex fabric.
If you have a young Western rider in your family, consider getting them a high-quality riding shirt that’s rugged enough to stand up to the demands of the equestrian lifestyle. The Stetson Gold Woven Shirt is essential for a day at the rodeo. A snap front featuring pearl logo snaps makes it easy to take on and off while still looking sharp.
Horse gifts for tweens should be fun- and this saddle pad definitely hits the mark. An all purpose saddle pad makes for a great present as it fits both dressage and jumping saddles. This Lettia pad is covered in smiling avocados, a unique take on the traditional saddle pad.
Another must-have for when you go to the rodeo or the county fair, these TinHaul boots are a great equestrian-inspired gift for the young Western rider in your family. A leather burnished tan cactus stitched vamp flows into a printed watercolor cactus shaft for an overall stylish and cute look. The cherry on top is the smiling cactus on the sole of the boot.
These beautiful sterling silver earrings are the perfect horse gift for tweens who love to dress up. A sterling silver frame surrounds delicate cubic zirconia stones in the shape of a Western star. With a matching bracelet, pendants, and ring also available, these earrings could be the start of a beautiful equestrian-inspired jewelry set. Wear them to add a touch of glitter to any outfit- both in the show ring and around town.
Haas Eqclusive creates brushes designed to bring out the best in every color of horse. Each brush set was designed for a specific coat color. For example, the chestnut brush set was created for the fluffier coat that these horses tend to have and to remove the dust that gets trapped deep beneath the hair. We also have a universal shining pack available for the rider that cares for more than one horse.
