Christmas is coming, and the geese are gettingâ€¦. well you know the rest. So now is a good time to review the best Christmas presents for horse and rider. And we are not talking useful here. No, this is about being spoilt with a bit of luxury instead of the normal mud and muck of the yard. Then again, if you want indulgence and practicality in one package, some of these might just be the present for you.
Dear Santa Claus, please could I haveâ€¦.
â€¦a Luxy London Classic Pom Pom Hat â€“ perfect for keeping ears toasty warm on the yard in winter, these gorgeous, rib knit, fur pom pom bobble hats are super soft and can fit any head size.
â€¦ an Otto Schumacher Crystal Belt - these elegant and beautifully crafted Otto Schumacher belts are handmade using real Swarovski crystals. Available in a range of crystal colours and leathers, these are a stunning take on the standard leather belt. Keep your trousers up with super style. A knock out.
â€¦a Flags and Cups Noranda Jacket - this lovely belted, quilted jacket from French dresser Flags and Cup is the ultimate in equine chic. The Noranda ladies quilted coat is filled with a patented fibre and comes with a natural fur removable collar, zipped pockets and a full length front closing zip. This fabulous jacket is not only light and soft but is also fully breathable. Look good, feel great! Whatâ€™s not to like?
â€¦a Mens Cavalleria Toscana Tech Quilted Puffer Jacket - this quality quilted jacket is both stylish and warm. A perfect addition to any equestrian wardrobe, it looks great both at the stables and around town. This lovely puffer jacket is typical of Toscana Cavalleriaâ€™s style and quality
â€¦ a KASK Star Lady on the Rocks Riding Helmet â€“ perhaps the ultimate in great looking practicality, in fact it is life-saving glamour. This wonderful KASK ladies riding helmet has a series of technical features that guarantee comfort, safety and high performance, with a large dose of added glamour to top it off (if you will pardon the pun) via the carpet of real Medley SwarovskiÂ® crystal across the top.
â€¦a pair of socks (well, no Christmas would be complete without a new pair). If Santa is up to the job, he might just choose the Cavalleria Toscana classic tech socks. Practical (ly) perfect in every way, these socks wash well, retain their shape and colour and always look smart and professional. They are made from hypo-allergenic, antibacterial material and help reduce friction. Maybe not glamorous, but oh so useful.
