Christmas is coming, and like every year we start with our desperate gift hunt. Here’s a list of we, equestrianist, would love to find under the tree.
Welcome December and welcome Christmas atmosphere! Temeperatures drop, sweaters became heavier, stables get colder. Fields and concentrated faces under the caps are freezing, hands get stiffier, we shave our equestrian partner and we make buckets of warm mash. We horse-riders also get those stabbing pains in our foots when getting off the saddle. With such harsh cold and wool hats, it is time to think about Christmas presents as well. Out of ideas this year too? No problem, here is a list of gift ideas that our personal Santa could bring to us horse-backriding lovers (on his steed, of course!).
