Shopping for riders can be tough, but at SmartPak, we’re always looking for ways to make your life easier! We polled some of the western riders at SmartPak and came up with our top picks for the western riders on your list!
Rockin’ SP Quilted Stable Blanket, picked by Becki from Marketing
As part of my family, my Quarter Horse gelding Fred doesn’t get left out of holiday gift giving and this year, the Rockin’ SP Quilted Stable Blanket is going to be the perfect Christmas gift for him! I know he’ll appreciate a blanket that actually fits his stockier frame, to keep him comfortable and cozy during the cold weather. Plus the black with red trim and white piping will look super sharp against his sorrel coat!
Under Armour Fleece Hoody, picked by Nina from Customer Care
Winter is one of the toughest times of the year to work with horses. If it wasn’t for the Under Armour Fleece Hoody’s performance fabric, I wouldn’t have made it those long hours at the barn. This is a great gift to give to anyone whether they are a horse person or not. The moisture-wicking material keeps me dry as I am working around the barn or riding. It makes the perfect layering piece as you could wear a t-shirt underneath the sweatshirt with a vest and then a winter coat if you need it on those extra frigid days. This is a top pick for me!
Rockin’ SP Double Stitch Halter, picked by Kaitlyn from Marketing
My best friend recently bought a new roping horse – a palomino gelding named Potato Chip. With Christmas right around the corner I have the perfect excuse to send her something for the new guy. She mentioned that she has had trouble finding a nice quality leather halter that fits well, so I have ordered her a Rockin’ SP Double Stitch Halter, complete with a brass nameplate to sport his awesome name! I can’t wait to see how handsome he looks wearing it.
Rockin’ SP Deluxe Waterproof Blanket, picked by Karen from IT
The Rockin’ SP Deluxe Waterproof Blanket is going to make the perfect gift for my stocky Quarter Horse mare this holiday season! I am confident that this blanket will be the perfect fit for her since it was specifically designed for stockier horses. I love that it has a tough 1200 denier rip stop outer shell since my horse can be rough on her blankets. I know she will be very happy wearing this blanket for years to come!
Ladies Engraved Spur, picked by Cathlin from Finance
I love that this spur offers the quality of a working spur with the fashion detail of a true statement piece. The elegant engraving and fashionable silver and black contrast is enough to make these an immediate favorite and the perfect gift! Not only are they perfect for the show ring, they also add that extra little polish to any riding experience, even if you just want to feel a little extra stylish. While I “gifted” the first pair to myself (who could resist?!), I know my friend is absolutely going to love the pair I got her as well!
