1. Clothing

If your mom loves to look her best while she is at the barn, consider gifting her clothing that matches her style such as a new pair of boots, breeches, jeans, riding gloves, vests, fleece, or a coat.

Here are some additional details that you may want to consider when choosing clothing for an equestrian enthusiast:

  • The type of riding that she does. If she does dressage, she will need different clothing than if she does trail riding.
  • The weather conditions. If she rides in all weather, she will need clothing that is both stylish and functional.
  • Her personal style. Some equestrian enthusiasts prefer a more traditional look, while others prefer trendier styles.

3. Gift Certificate to Her Favorite Shop

This is a wonderful way to let your mom choose her own gift.
