Besides a warm and comfortable stall, what else do you think your horse wants for Christmas? This holiday season, give your riding buddy a special gift that he can’t resist! Here are six (6) Christmas treats that will surely leave a smile on his face.
Don’t just give him any ordinary saddle pad. Make the most of the season by gifting him with a thermal soothing saddle pad that fits his back. If you want him to be 100% comfortable during the ride, then try to get the high-quality saddle pad that he can wear all day.
A great gift that your riding pal will surely appreciate is a minty treat. Mints are tasty delights for horses that are beneficial to their lungs and digestive tract. Also, they come with astringents that are good for skin healing. Your horse would love mints just as he loves you.
No horse would want a muddy paddock for Christmas! Mud can pose safety and health risks like sliping, rushes, scratches, and falls, so make sure his paddock is as dry and clean as your home.
With the busy holidays, you may forget about giving your horse some time off. Just this Christmas, give him rest from your regular riding routine or training schedule. He might not say it, but your horse also wants some time to slack off and enjoy a day without doing anything.
Homemade Horse Treats
Why not make your horse some homemade food? This way, you’re sure that your riding pal’s dietary needs are met—plus, you know exactly what’s getting into their system. Apple sauce, cinnamon-soaked feed, or an oak flapjack is surely a healthy treat that he can indulge all day.
Let your horse feel the Christmas cheer by dressing him with a festive fashion like a Santa-inspired head collar or any Christmas-themed accessories that will bring out the good vibe in him. Nothing could be more special than having him in mind while you’re shopping for Christmas decorations for your home. Buy one for him and you’ll definitely win his heart!
