You guys are also getting some really cool presents!!! I am lucky to have a horsey hubby, and he is so good about presents. My other christmas present is new hay bags for my trailer to replace my old beat up ones. And my last birthday (7 weeks ago), he gave me the best present ever.... a new horse!
I love the Nat Geo maps to get an overall feel for an area and pick destinations to go to. Plus they have cool information about trails/landmarks. Occasionally I will print off a usgs topo map to get a clearer view of a trail to take with us, too. We haven't gotten to the gps stage yet, but we've been pretty lucky about not getting "too" lost on the trails.
