This year all of our staffers picked out top of the list gift items to help you find just the right thing this holiday season for your favorite equestrian! 

Morgan loves the D bit necklace from Loriece, she a big fan of silver, and the necklace is flashy, fabulous and can go with everything!

Lisa has been a very good girl this year, she's picked out something for her & for her horse. For her she loves the Tailored Sportsman Desert Storm Belt. The 'C' fit of the Tailored Sportsman belts mean there is no gap at the back of your waist. Lisa loves how the design creates a hologram effect, paired with warm and cool colors, she can make it casual or dressy for wherever she's headed. 

For her horse, Lisa is loving this black Bates Victrix Saddle with red trim paired with the black and red Ogilvy Equestrian half pad and saddle pad. Lisa does the jumpers and loves how these colors pop. The new Bates saddles will blow your mind she says. The new super soft leather and design of the saddle rivals your favorite european brands. It'll knock your socks off! 

Lizzie did a spot on our social pages with the Ariat Attain Thermal Tights and has fallen in LOVE with them. Lizzie declared that these winter fleece lined breeches are less bulky than others on the market, making them less restricting for barn duties. They're so comfortable Lizzie says she'll wear them everywhere! 

Ryanne is always on the move, the Tucker Tweed Brandywine Backpack became a fast favorite for her! "This bag can hold everything I need, so I can be out the door in a flash."  Her favorite part is the timeless look of leather & the detailed accents.

Jennifer loves the new Mountain Horse Devonshire river style boots. Warm & waterproof with subtle equestrian detailing. These boots go from street to stable with comfortable ease. 

Vicky is put the Ariat Madden Parka at the top of her list. Vicky says it's the perfect winter barn coat! It's super warm, plus the fit and durability are unmatched by anything else on the market. It has a vented back to help keep your legs warm while riding & lots of pockets for storage. 

Chelsea is absolutely obsessed with the Cavallo Opalo Down Coat! The beautiful faux fur lined hood & the gorgeous olive color looks good on anyone. Bringing it to the coldest of climates will make staying warm and fashionable a breeze!

Vicki Wood is a huge fan of Kask helmets, she loves how comfortably the fit is on her head and the stylish venting for air circulation. Hope loves it too, safety first! 

Abbie grabbed the Ariat Gesa Coat, the full lenght of this coat will keep you warm and cozy turning heads wherever you go. "This coat is unbelievably light weight for the amount of warmth it offers! Comparable coats weigh much more and all that bulk slows me down. Plus the lining details and fur accents on this coat will have everyone asking where you got it!" 

Bonnie is a little camera shy, but I know you all want to know what her favorite pick is for a holiday give this year. 
She is crushing on Tucker Tweed Sedgefield Bag. Cross body bags are her favorite style and this bag is no exception. This trendy little bag can hold all her necessities to get out the door, with the big hands free bonus of having a detachable strap to upgrade the style crossbody. 

What's on my wish list?  Any of our staff members can tell you my favorite piece of apparel we carry this time of year is the Ariat Lowell base layer. I'm a layering kind of girl and I LOVE all the colors and prints that come out each year. I love pairing these under vests &  tee shirts. The quarter zip is just what I need during southern winters for that little bit of extra warmth. But my favorite thing about these shirts is the THUMB HOLES. I hate wearing gloves in the winter around the barn. Cleaning stalls and handling frisky horses with bulky gloves is just not fun. The thumb holes are the perfect compromise. Warm hands & the dexterity to do barn things, I can save those bulky gloves for winter barn chores involving water troughs and hoses.
