A few years ago, I wrote a blog post 10 Christmas Gift Ideas for Equestrians. And since it has been a coupe of year, I thought I would redo this list 2019! But, feel free to go back and check out that blog post. I think the ideas are still good, but I have a few new ideas this year that I wanted to share with you.
And you still have time to get these ordered, and have them arrive in time for Christmas! Just think, if you read this post, AND the older one, you will have 20 gift ideas for your equestrian friends and family!
10 Gifts Equestrians Would Love to get This Christmas
Combining fashion with fun designs, the Dreamers & Schemers Boot Socks will quickly become an equestrian favorite! Designed for durability and comfort, these socks feature a lightly padded toe that wraps around the bottom of the foot back to your ankle for supportive cushioning and protection from friction. Smooth, stretchy fabric at the top of the sock provides a customized fit and fits seamlessly under tall boots or half chaps.
The top black cuff is knitted to maintain color even when stretched for extra protection against the sock sticking out of your boot during shows. With a variety of whimsical designs, these socks let you express your style without compromising comfort or functionality.
