My all-time favorite is actually a bracelet. It's leather with a gold or silver plaque with whatever you want engraved on it. I have my horses name on it!

Padded or unpadded, either is great.

Well for starters, a real horse is always a surefire way to go. (especially for those without one) And if santa brings me one for christmas, I swear I would move to the north pole and become an elf for the rest of my life.

To really answer your question, I was thinking of getting some halters for some people (I'd rather not say who in case they come across this thread ) in coordinating colors with their coats (their horses, not their actual coats), and if it isn't too much more, getting the horses' names sewn onto the noesband.

Some horse statues are always good. Breyers are a bit on the cashy side, but they are really pretty and come in a variety of molds and colors. I would suggest looking on ebay for one, it could be a lot cheaper and there probably is a lot more variety online than there is on a store.

What about getting her a saddle pad? They make those in a lot of fancy patterns and styles. (If you ride western, of course)

If your mom likes to cook, Rod's Western Palace sells a bunch of cookware with horse stuff on it. Dishes, wine glasses, towels, curtains, you name it. They even had a calunder? (One of those things you use to drain pasta) with horse shaped holes in it.

Hope this helps!

Those are some really good ideas, A knack for horses.
I think you can never have enough halters, and getting one personalized is something you might not do for yourself, so great gift idea!
Does she show? You could get a beautiful show halter, depending on your budget...

"Horsey" jewelry is always great, if she likes jewelry.

What about a fleece throw for cuddling up with, in a horse fabric.
Or, there are also those decorative throws you can have made with your own horse(s) on them. That would be a pretty special gift, and they have come down a bit in price since they first came out.

Or along the lines of Breyer horses, they also make some beautiful Christmas ornaments! And they are a little more budget friendly...

I really love this idea...I was just thinking about this the other day actually as I have many horse related gifts to buy!

One site I have seen can handpaint ornaments to look like your horse too...if you submit a photo of the horse you want painted.
It is best to get personlized items done asap so that the gift arrives on time for Christmas.

Thanks!!!
You guys came up with some great gift ideas!
I was thinking about getting a throw with my mom's horses on it..she has 5...sooo...I will have to pick one cause a group picture would be almost impossible,haha.
My mom does western but is learning english..she is more into that.I think she might do jumping.
I got her a music box with two horses on it..one was grey and one was black and they face each other...one looks like her current horse and the other looks like her childhood horse.

Breyer is a bit pricey! I like the ornament idea.

Are you any good with Photoshop, or know any one who is?

If she has five horses, you could create your own "group" photo of them to go on the throw.....

Nooo,i don't have photoshop :(

Maybe someone on here can make a group picture for me?
I can get pictures of her horses and have some do a collage?

I would love to offer my Hubby's services, but he is gone on a business trip, I would need to run it by him before promising anything....
It might get done sooner if some one else on the forum has the talent.

He's pretty busy, working a lot, he might be pretty grumpy with me if I just said he'd do it.

Oh, hey! That collage idea might work. I think there is some site that you can use for free to do that kind of thing....
