Holiday Gifts for the Equestrian

We couldn’t help ourselves. With a few fun finds that were too good not to share, we’ve compiled one last gift guide to assist those in a bind. And if you are still looking for stocking stuffers, here are some oldies but goodies. Eleven days and counting …

L’Objet Horse Napkin Jewels
$195 for a set of four

Earlier this year we vowed to ditch our equestrian kitsch with some fine decor tips from NYC-based interior designer Nicole Fuller. We think she would approve of these handcrafted 24K gold plated napkin rings, which are presented in a pretty gift box. L’Objet draws inspiration from exotic lands, incorporating elegant equestrian-themed treasures among its collections.

Designer Carol Fails appeals to our glam/grit spirit with just the right combination of tough leather and feminine flair. The pave crystal stirrup can be worn as a necklace pendant, or a bracelet wrap, with several leather options. And there’s more – 25% of each sale of this piece will be donated to The Horse Rescue of Franklin, Tennessee, to support to their powerful mission of healing.

Rein Naturals founder Celine Reilly is dedicated to strengthening the bond between horse and rider. Her essential oils are formulated to assist in equine performance with blends that enhance courage, calmness, energy, focus, and more. A spray of the mane 15 minutes prior to competition yields best results.

The antique brass finish and bold curves of this deep tray make it a statement piece for any wet bar or serving cart … the ornamental handle charms are just the right touch. Spring for the matching wine bucket and cocktail accessories. All are food safe.

Wellesley Equestrian Show Brush Set
$205 for the 6-piece set

We’re all for sharing, but our equipment has a tendency to find a new home. These grooming supplies will be returned to their rightful owner with a personalized name plate. The set includes a soft brush, “hard enough” brush, tail/mane brush, face brush, and hoof brush in either dark walnut with brass plate or black with silver plate, and one brass hoof pick. An intentional violation of our #nohoofpickshere rule!

A familiar friend on whom to rely when it comes to posh presents, Hermès never disappoints for checking all of the boxes: timeless, impeccable, and orange.

Just when we were soaking in all things new this fall at Hattie Banks, she has wooed us again by debuting a holiday collection featuring her signature, subtle bling.  While the diamonds, sapphires, emeralds, and rubies shine in a palate of seasonal cheer, they are sure to brighten one’s entire year.  Visit her website for $50 off your first purchase.

Minted Custom Wrapping Paper
$15 for five sheets

Stalk your recipient’s Instagram account for fun photos of their four-legged friends, then upload images on Minted to create a custom package!

Fer à Cheval Heritage Gift Set
$49 for nail brush, wooden dish, and fragrance-free soap bar

This is the best collaboration our grimy, post-ride nails could ever imagine. Who better than the master brushier himself — Andrée Jardin — to help get you by in between manicures? The soap dish and brush handle are made of thermo-heated ash, giving the wood its rich caramel color and a resistance to humidity and the wear of time. The authentic Marseille soap is perfume and preservative-free. A handsome yet practical addition to any barn.
