Mother’s Day is coming up quick (May 14 for all you forgetful folks out there), and sometimes it can be really hard to think outside the box for a gift. Flowers are great, and adding another necklace to her collection isn’t a bad idea, per se, but what about something she could use all the time, something that goes hand-in-hand with one of her favorite things: her horse. Even women who don’t have human children of their own deserve recognition for being a horse’s caregiver, because it’s no easy feat! Here are a few of our favorite gift ideas for the mare mom in your life.
- The Gift of Beauty. Horses are such incredibly beautiful and majestic animals, which makes their grooming important – not just aesthetically, but for their overall wellbeing. Consider getting Mom a new brush for her horse or maybe it’s time for a new hoof pick.
- The Gift of Warmth. Most horses need blankets in the wintertime and, while we recognize Mother’s Day is not a winter holiday, it’s certainly a gift that will keep on giving. Plus, she’ll have a new one ready and waiting as soon as the weather starts to turn.
- The Gift of a Clean Barn. Perfect for the tidy caregiver, our hay bag and soft hay bale are perfect for travel or just cleaning up the horse’s stall; a considerate and useful gift without being an over-the-top gesture.
- The Gift of Style. Especially if Mom is a trendsetter (or simply likes nice things), buying her a new leather lead or halter will surely make her smile. Not only is it more durable, but there’s just something about leather that looks so polished and professional.
