Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday Deals for Equestrians and Horse Lovers is almost upon us! I don't know about you, but I plan to do most of my holiday shopping during the week of Black Friday. Get the best pricing on sale items you've been holding out for!
We've put together a list of some of our favorite brands to support on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. We hope you'll join us in supporting small, independent equestrian brands this holiday season.
If you're like every horse kid ever, you've read or loved Marguerite Henry's classic book, Misty of Chincoteague. Author, and blogger at SaddleSeeksHorse.com followed in Marguerite Henry's footsteps to find the true story of the author, and the legend of Misty. We love Susan's new book for so many reasons, and love to support independent business women even more...So This book, and Susan's other titles (Horses Adored and Men Endured, Strands of Hope, and Unbridled Creativity) are all going on my Small Business Saturday list. Pair it with a Misty Breyer and you have a pretty solid Christmas gift!
We're all about bringing horses home with us, but alas, we live in the suburbs. Our line of eco-friendly, biodegradable table settings give us a little horse love at home. Check out our Mix-and-Match Equestrian Table Settings for Black Friday! They make the perfect equestrian holiday gift idea.
We love BOTORI, no joke. Our favorite pants to wear all day, every day. With their versatile fit, they're an easy gift to buy and they're made in the USA too! We especially love the Taylor Riding Tight, and will definitely be adding some to my cart this Cyber Monday 2023! (And if you're loving that holiday fox gift wrap, get it here!) We also wrote a handy blog article on 5 Tips to Gift BOTORI, check it out!
We love Arista Equestrian for their unique designs and small-batch quality. These aren't mass produced overseas, they're made in Canada and a (super cool) woman-owned company. There are *so many* different patterns to choose from it's hard to pick just one...But the snaffle bit detail on the backs of the vests is what makes these truly special. This Black Friday, if you want to support an independent equestrian brand...Arista Equestrian is a good one to pick!
As a fellow Los Angeleno, we have a whole lot of love for Los Angeles-based equestrian lifestyle brand, Stable Style. What started out as a blog showcasing swoon-worthy dream barns, has morphed into an equestrian lifestyle blog with a line of beautifully curated goods including luxury candles, match sets and a lovely hardcover coffee table book full of the most incredible barns from around the world. If you're looking for a small, but impactful equestrian gift this holiday season, Stable Style is a luxe gift item for your horse loving friends and family.
If you're looking for something truly original, look no further than Huntsmen & Hounds. The owner, Michele looks after every last detail in her line of equestrian apparel, and her handbags are all sustainably made of recycled tack and fabrics! She doesn't just make a product, she makes an experience. If you're looking for hand-crafted, unique and high-quality equestrian Black Friday/Cyber Monday gift ideas...Add Huntsmen & Hounds to your list.
The classic Christmas carol, for horse show season. Golf carts and horses seem to go hand-in-hand these days. You can't go to a horse show without at least one golf cart zipping around with horses in tow. Instead of a one-horse sleigh, we've hitched our horse up to our broken down golf cart (the battery is aaalllways dead!) Join us in spreading a little equestrian cheer this Black Friday with our newest Christmas card for 2023.
There are a bazillion saddle pads to choose from this holiday season...But my new favorite horseware company has to be Sixteen Cypress. The 16C collection is traditionally inspired and reminiscent of classic equestrian colors and patterns...But modernized for today's equestrian. Their thoughtfully crafted collection of saddle pads, polo wraps, brush boots, bonnets and more are so unique and beautifully made, you'll have everyone asking where you got it. They're also a small company, which makes it even better. So if you're like me and want to support independent brands this Black Friday/Cyber Monday...Don't miss out on Sixteen Cypress.
When I think of equestrian belts...I always think of Ellany. For being a young brand (in the grand scheme of things) Ellany has reached icon status. Not only do they offer a variety of elastic patterns and buckles, but they also have a line of riding shirts and breeches too! Ellany's founder, Liz, is a pretty cool chick and we respect her hustle. Plus, a belt is an amazing stocking stuffer...And also works great as a ribbon for your wrapped gifts!
Tucker Tweed is an equestrian classic. Clean lines, simple design, impactful icons. From leather handbags, to wallets, luggage and even a belt bag...Tucker Tweed has a range of uniquely equestrian bags to fit your lifestyle. You can choose between hunter/jumper, dressage, polo, or foxhunting so you can match your bag to your passion (which is much better than just matching your shoes!) A handbag is always a nice gift for that woman in your life who's as obsessed with horses as we are, so make sure you put Tucker Tweed on your Black Friday wish list.
A high-fashion veteran, 70 Degrees founder Alisa set out to make a performance sportswear company with a luxury look and feel. Her designs are not only beautifully crafted, but also unique with laser-cut detailing, built in stock ties, and show coats that keep you cool mind, body and spirit. When shopping for that equestrian in your life who has an eye for fashion....70 Degrees may be your one and done this Black Friday/Cyber Monday. Oh, and did I mention they have a golf and pickle ball/tennis collection too?!
The gift of organization...
Horse people have a lot going on. We all try to pack as much time per day in at the barn, while juggling families, careers, relationships and life in general. It can be taxing, but worth every second of planning. Sometimes the best gift is a little organization...and with the New Year right around the corner...This Ultimate Equestrian Weekly Planner will help you manage your "new year, new you"...with horses (duh!)
I think most of us can relate...We're pretty Amateur AF in this horse game. Even when we think we finally have it down, there's nothing like a horse to humble us and make us remember, we have no idea what we're doing. If you relate...This Amateur AF set from Equine & Design is right up your alley. Made in the USA by a fellow one-woman show...We hope you'll take a look at all their funny equestrian graphic tees, apparel and gift ideas this holiday season.
We had the pleasure of meeting Valarie, the proprietor of Equestrian Wellness, at her store at Tryon International in South Carolina. We were swept away by the wonderful scents, the lovely packaging, the attention to detail, and Valarie's fun personality. Her product lines are well-developed, researched and tested...And make a fabulous gift for someone else (or yourself!) Find anything from bath salts to skincare, to helmet sprays and more. What we love most about Equestrian Wellness is how thoughtfully designed everything is, and we're a sucker for the details! Find boxed gift sets, or put together your own gift basket of equestrian-themed wellness this Black Friday.
What started out as a boot sock company for quirky equestrians has grown into spur straps, saddle pads and comfy cozy slippers for that post-ride chill sesh. Dreamers & Schemers has an excellently curated collection of complimentary products for some pretty epic gift giving. With tons of mix and match sets to choose from, you can find something for everyone on your list this Black Friday Cyber Monday!
Wrap it up!
Equestrians go all-in on the matchy-matchy. So when you are gifting a horse person, make sure they know it's just for them with equestrian-inspired gift wrapping paper. All of our gift wrap is printed in California and hand-rolled with love, just for our horse-loving friends. Take a look at our collection here, or check out one of our blogs on gift wrapping ideas! 2023 Gift Wrap ideas, and 2022 Gift Wrap ideas, and this one too!
