Okay so I'm no Oprah, but after watching her annual favorite things show last week I thought to myself why not a gift guide for horse lovers? With Christmas right around the corner, time is running out to find just the right gift for the horse lover in your life. Here is a little inspiration to get you started :) Everything listed in this first installment of my favorite things is not only tried and true but also priced at $25.00 or less!
I will continue to rack my brain for more ideas tonight and see what else I can come up with. If you have a great gift idea we would love to hear them so drop us a line in the comment section or email me

Rhythm Beads by Elated Equine

Rhythm Beads (sometimes called "speed beads") not only enhance the natural beauty of your horse, but help build rhythm/cadence and help you both to stay calm and focused in stressful situations.
There are other retailers that sell these wonderful beads but what I love about elated equine is the ability to choose your colors, pattern, string and bells using the Design your own bead feature. Log on, pick
your colors and see what your design would look like on YOUR horse, right now, before you decide to buy! You can also purchase necklaces directly from the featured patterns section or contact them with your color preferences and they will create a rhythm beads design especially for you!
Stud Muffins Horse Treats
Price $19.95/50 Pack
Stud Muffin horse treats are called the caviar of horse treats. I found them a bit pricey but after trying to make my own and failing miserably I decided to by a pack as a special treat for my horses after summer camp. They go nuts for this stuff! I've yet to meet a horse that will turn up his nose to these goodies.
Stud muffins 100% hand made with all natural ingredients fortified with extra protein and flax seed, ensuring they are as healthy as they are enjoyable.
Massage Pin Brush by Epona
The massage pin brush by epona is absolutely the best brush I have ever owned. I have two, one for my horse and one for myself! Natural wood brush and bristles, for manes, tails and body. Delivers a soothing, relaxing massage for the body, while softly detangling manes and tails – no breaking or tearing.
Herbal Scented Cold/Hot pack by Horse Holistics
I was given one of these as a gift a few years ago and it has been a god sent. I use it all the time for various aches and pains. brings soothing warmth to larger areas like upper and lower back, shoulders, etc. as well as back pain and strain. Fluted channels keep contents evenly distributed for maximum benefit. Physician-formulated blend of 12 soothing, aromatic herbs in a flax seed base. Unlike rice or corn which becomes moldy and must be thrown out, flax seed keeps its integrity. Hot or cold, they're great for arthritis, sinus headaches, stress relief and many other common ailments. I don't know if it is intended for horse use at all but I did buy a smaller version for my arthritic old dog and he absolutely loves it!
