If I get good pictures of the horses tonight, I'm going to get the thermal mugs with their horses picture on it. There is one problem.... One of my boarders is not really attached to her horse and is trying to sell him. What do I get her??????

I just said to my sister this afternoon that I think a discount on board for the month of December is a nice idea for a Holiday gift from BO's. Any amount, really, would be more valuable to me than getting a physical gift, honestly. I think the items w/your farm logo are a good idea for people who are only taking lessons or riding/training with you.

I was thinking about trying to get good pictures of all of our boarders with their horse(s) and putting them in a nice frame, along with the farm hats and homemade treats. If you guys were boarders, would you like this?

(Sorry I'm stealing your topic!)

I've never gotten anything from any of he barns I have been at. What us boarders tho are doing, is we are collecting money for a night out at a local resort and we are going to take over for 2 days of the barn while they leave town to take time off.

As a past boarder, I've gotten hay bags, halter bags, and have been treated to dinner. This year I am the barn owner with three boarders. I bought them each a grooming tote filled with stuff that I know they can use (shampoo, hair conditioner, wound ointment, winter gloves, zocks). Now I hope they will stop using my stuff!

I'm sorry if someone already mentioned it as I haven't had time to read the posts but what about making horse stockings? get a different stocking for every boarder and get various items for both horse and the owner such as chocolates, horse treats, maybe a cute little horse decoration etc etc. Tack stores are full of cute little stocking fillers. Leave them hanging on the stall.

I agree with some of the above posters, a shirt or jacket with a logo on it would be very nice. At the same time you would be, in a way, advertising
