Are you in need of a gift for a horse lover? Look no further! A horse lover wants only one thing: an object to remind him of his affection. People who love horses don’t necessarily have to be riders or own their own ranches. Horse gifts can be an excellent idea for those that share a passion for these majestic animals. The only problem is finding a gift that is truly useful for a rider or one that captures the beauty of this unique animal. We have selected 10 unique gifts for horse lovers that do a great job at both. Most of them aren’t even expensive.
1. How to Think Like a Horse
‘How to Think Like a Horse’ is an excellent book that will teach you how to get inside the mind of a horse. Needless to say, the receiver will become a horse-whisperer of sorts after reading it. Even if horses are gentle and calm creatures, they remain unpredictable to people who don’t know a lot about their survival instincts. Equine behavior will start making sense after reading Cherry Hill’s book. It contains information about the basic needs, routines and responses to actions to things such as touch, sound, smell, sights etc.
2. Equestrian Clothing
There are various stores specialized in equestrian clothing, however, many riders use regular clothing as there are no safety requirements for shirts, breeches and footwear.

On specialized websites you can find amazing products such as full-seat breeches, horse riding vests & jackets at great prices.

Tail Lights is an innovative product envisioned by a rancher. His project is still in kick starter phase, but it shows promise. “Tail lights” poses absolutely no danger for the horse, and protects riders in low-light conditions. It also comes with the added bonus of looking absolutely spectacular.
“Every day riders have to navigate along busy roads to make it to a trail. More often than not, and depending on the time of year, riders find themselves returning at dusk and back to the barn in the dark. Tail Lights will change the way we see horses, and their riders, at any time of the day… or night.” Source
