Many equestrians are familiar with the phrase “barn mom.” Those dedicated mothers who are at every pony club meeting and cheer their kids on loudly from the sidelines. They may also throw out some advice during riding lessons – “Eyes up! Heels down!” Barn moms get a lot of love from their horse crazy kids. But somehow, horse dads tend to get overlooked.
Just like barn moms, horse dads are at every riding lesson and horse show. Whether they ride or are just there to offer support in the way only dads can, horse dads deserve all the love in the world from their young equestrians. Horses are an expensive and time-consuming passion. Any horse dad who does their best to support their kids' love of horses deserves an amazing Father’s Day gift.
Horse dad number one goes to every horse show with the same amount of passion and excitement as he would if he were attending a major sporting event.
Horses were a foreign language to him before you had your first pony ride. In the years since then, this horse dad has grilled the trainer on everything their young rider needs at a horse show, just so he can come prepared.
King of the pep talk, this horse dad has perfected the pre-class motivational speech, the congratulatory hug, and the “just keep trying” discussion.
Father’s Day gifts for this dad should make his job as the best horse show groom ever easier.
English riding is a mostly-female dominated sport, but this horse dad doesn’t care. He gave you your first pony ride on the barn’s calmest lesson horse and walked with you in all of your leadline classes. Whenever you fell off, he was there to give you a pat down and put you right back on the horse.
This horse dad is continuously faced with one big struggle– the lack of options for men’s riding gear in most English tack stores. Pamper your dad with Father’s Day gifts that include all of the English apparel he’s been searching for.
Most kids learn how to play catch with their father. You learned how to fix a fence and brand a cow, instead.
These horse dads teach their children some of life’s most important lessons right from the back of a horse. Most fathers and sons talked over dinner or beers.

Some of your fondest memories probably include an outing to the local rodeo or hearing your dad cheer you on from the sidelines while you ran barrels.
Horse dads like this one will appreciate Father’s Day gifts that are useful and practical.
We all know this horse dad. He may not know a ton about horses, but you bet he’s going to be at every riding lesson and horse show to support his kid’s passion. These dads have recently learned how to give a horse a treat and have spent every minute since spoiling your horse.
The best Father’s Day gifts for these horse dads make them feel welcomed into the horse world and appreciated for all of the support they do their best to give, despite their lack of horsey know-how.
