If you’re like most equestrians you love showing off your horse(s) and keeping them part of your daily life! As an avid equestrian I’m always trying to keep horses involved in my day to day life. While doing so I’ve come up with many creative and different ways to do so.
Buy a house plant or flower: Okay, before you judge this idea hear me out: When my family bought my horse a little over 2 years ago, we wanted a way to remember the day, and I came up with the idea to buy a plant for the house. My horse came with the name Lilly, so we bought a Peace Lily for home. It is still alive and thriving today. Whenever my family sees the plant it always makes us remember how happy we were the day we bought her. House plants are easy to maintain and help make your living space look beautiful.
Galloping Graphics Sticker: If you’re an active equestrian Twitter user you’ve probably heard about or seen some Galloping Graphics stickers! They are currently very popular as Twitter avatars. The stickers are so cute and affordable. You can read a review on the company’s products here. Galloping Graphics offers an option for you to have a custom sticker of you and your horse designed for just $10. Stickers can be placed on your planner, folders, binders – the possibilities are really endless!
Horse hair keychain and bracelet: This idea is similar to the name plate bracelet but even more personalized! I love horse hair bracelets and keychains because they one of a kind and a true part of your horse. You can make your own by hand or find a company, such as one on Etsy, that will make one for you (after you send them the hair, of course). The keychain can be kept on a lanyard or with your keys so you always have it with you.Wear equestrian styled apparel: Equestrian styled apparel is predicted to be “in” this fall season, so why not wear your breeches to work? Companies like Le Fash and Tailored Sportsman have designed beautiful breeches and shirts that can be used for your #ROOTD and #OOTD! I’ve also found sweaters and dresses with equestrian flares at stores such as Macy’s and Nordstrom. Tucker Tweed is an equestrian inspired company that makes gorgeous handbags, wallets, and even iPad covers! Their products are gorgeous, durable, and the perfect way to add equestrian style to your daily life. Custom coffee mug: Equestrians run on coffee, so why not have a custom coffee mug with your horse on it? Custom coffee mugs can be made at Walgreens or custom print shops, such as Vistaprint. You can use your custom coffee mug at work, horse shows, or even home. You can even go all out and have different coffee mugs with different pictures on them. Bottom line: there’s nothing wrong with showing off your horse!
