It’s all about finding warmth in the cold for horse owners and riders as they head out for barn chores and lessons during the winter months. We suggest a pair of HW Winter Riding Tights to keep any horse rider warm! These must-have riding tights have a fleece-like brushed lining providing additional heat retention. They feature a silicone full seat grip, water repellant finish, and this year introduces a new vibrant colorway in Beetroot to help brighten up those dreary days.

If the equestrian in your life is anything like me, whether it’s cold or raining, their dog is heading to the barn with them. A dog blanket is a great gift option to help your equestrian’s pup feel a bit more comfortable during the cold and rainy months. The Rambo® Waterproof Dog Coat is my go-to for protecting fido. With an 840D waterproof 0g outer shell and a removable 100g liner, this dog blanket becomes a multi-purpose year-round necessity. This blanket provides warmth in the winter by using the liner with the outer shell. It also helps keep a canine friend dry during warmer rainier weather by removing the liner and utilizing just the outer shell.

This technical turnout with liner is designed to keep your horse comfortable and give you peace of mind through it all. More of a practical gift, the Rambo Autumn Series is ideal for trans-seasonal weather or climates more prone to unpredictable weather patterns. Lightweight, waterproof and highly breathable the hybrid fabric application combines technical softshell, durable 900D polyester, and mesh panels across the chest and shoulder area to promote superior air circulation.
Leg protection is a high priority for many equestrians. Horseware Ireland’s newest innovation of the Adagio Boot is the perfect option. This year-round boot is design of highly technical memory form allowing for maximum flexibility and motion while still absorbing shock upon impact. The inside lining is smooth lycra with not internal seams to avoid rubs or irritation. The front overlapping closure allows for a snug fit without adding additional pressure to the fetlock joint. This boot is ideal for any exercise, trails, or hacking.
