  1. Treats

Healthy treats are the ideal reward when training. But they’re also the perfect present. Opt for a treat that’s similar to natural horse food, such as carrots, apples and sugar cubes. Or, give your equine pal a taste of Christmas in every bite with Likit’s Stud Muffins Christmas Puddings. They’re handmade with added protein and flax seeds for a healthy and merry snack.

Christmas accessories

At Christmas, you can’t go wrong with a festive knit. And the same (or similar) goes for your horse. Make them feel jolly with one of the below accessories:

  1. Equetech Santa's Helper Breastplate

This breastplate comes with adjustable straps and a faux fur trim and is a great addition to your Christmas riding outfit.

  1. QHP Christmas Bridle Charm

This cheerful charm fits perfectly onto your horse’s bridle or headcollar. Plus, it’s designed with a character of your choice – an elf, Rudolph or a Christmas tree.

  1. QHP Christmas Fur Headcollar

Get into the festive spirt with a Christmas headcollar. It’s softly padded with faux fur and features a Christmas pattern. Plus, it’s practical. It’s fully adjustable on both sides and includes a snap closure at the throat.


Beat the boredom with one of these festive toys:

  1. CarrotBall

This innovative horse toy prevents boredom and relieves stress. Hang it up in their paddock, or watch them play with it in their horsebox.

  1. Likit Boredom Buster

This Christmas, give your horse the gift of mental stimulation. Simply hang the Boredom Buster from a strong beam (away from any walls) and insert a few Likits. As your horse licks, the Boredom Buster will move and spin, increasing the level of challenge.

Grooming tools

Grooming is an important part of horse care. Daily grooming allows you to check your horse’s wellbeing and general health. It also increases the bond between you both. The benefits of daily grooming include:

  • A healthy boost to the skin and coat
  • Reduces the chance of health issues – such as thrush and other skin problems
  • Cleans the horse, preventing chaffing around the tack
  • Allows you to look for cuts, swelling, or sensitive areas
  • Improves the relationship with your horse
  1. Shires EZI-GROOM Grip Dandy Brush

This soft-grip brunch has synthetic bristles to remove mud and sweat from un-clipped horses, but still preserves essential oils – keeping your horse’s coat smooth and shiny. 

  1. Effol Hoof Oil

Give your horse the gift of year-round hoof health. This hoof oil promotes the elasticity of the hoof horn and the resilience of their feet, for long-lasting shine and health.

Everything else

  1. A Winter Rug

Keep your horse warm and protect them from the cold, rain and pests with a winter rug. All horses are different, so each individual animal will need something specifically for them. Horse & Hound have rounded up some of the best medium-weight turnout rugs for every budget. Take a look here.

  1. Personalised horse plate

Show your horse you care with a personalised stable sign engraved with their name and a fancy equine design. Each plaque is treated with Danish wood oil and several coats of high-quality varnish.

  1. Hy Equestrian Reflector

This hi-vis tail guard is fluorescent and reflective, ideal for keeping you and your horse safe while riding.
