Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away, which means it’s time to start dropping some heavy hints. And with this selection of equestrian-themed gifts on the market, red roses are unlikely to cut it.
1. Harriet Glen, from £85 for the silver model
You’re unlikely to grow tired of this trotting warmblood pendant and chain. It measures at 37mm from nose to tail and is available in silver or gold.
2. Hiho Silver, £65
Made in Somerset, this bracelet combines freshwater pearls with gold plated beads, silver knots and is finished with a sterling silver snaffle and T fastening.
3. Joules, from £52
Give the bedroom a makeover with this “Pony Race” duvet cover. Available in single, double, king and super king sizes.
3. Harry Hall, £28
Bring the Valentine’s Day vibe to the yard with these heart-motif junior jeggings from Harry Hall. Available in sizes 20-28, either in blackberry or navy.
4. Gemosi, from £72
If your other half has come to terms with your horse being number one, a bracelet made from your steed’s hair could be the answer. Using quality sterling silver findings you can choose from a selection of designs of bracelets and necklaces, with optional crystal or sterling silver beads.
5. Tickets to the Cheltenham Festival, from £22
Get your hands on some tickets for this year’s Cheltenham Festival (10-13 March), for top-class racing and a horsey day out that you can both enjoy.
Something for boys…
6. Theo Fennell, £6,500
Feeling flush? Splash out on these black enamel and diamond Arab cufflinks, handcrafted in Theo Fennell’s Fulham workshop. Alternatively you might be tempted to invest the cash in a nice horse instead…
7. Estribos, from £35
Brighten up any pair of jeans or breeches with an Argentine polo belt.
8. The Vintage Tackroom, £43.95
No boy is going to turn down a stylish hip flask. This one from The Vintage Tackroom has been individually produced in a workshop in England by master craftspeople, using the finest polished stainless steel, covered in green leather — and the screw top is fixed to a flexible brass chromed hinge to stop it from being lost.
And finally, a treat for the horses…
9. Rockies Health Lick, £3.17
Looking for something to treat the stable relationship in your life? *Awful pun intended*
A Rockies Health Lick — available in carrot, cherry, mint, apple and garlic flavours — is the nutritious option.
