Dressage Today’s Holiday Gift Guide 2015

Let your holidays be merry and bright with our favorite picks for dressage gifts.

The air has turned crisp, the leaves have fallen and the cold night air is once again starting to smell like wood burning in fireplaces. Horses return to the barn with steam rising off their backs after work and you’re back to juggling coolers, quarter sheets and blankets. The smell of warm bran mash reminds you that not only is it nearly winter, but it’s also almost another holiday season—which entails another round of holiday shopping. In this guide, we bring you a list of Dressage Today’s fresh picks for the 2015 holiday season that we think dressage enthusiasts will be thrilled to unwrap.

Editors Picks:

Cork Ladies Chelsea Boot Dubarry $379

“I swoon over these boots. I love the functionality and timeless style of Dubarry’s collections and these boots are no exception. They are hand-crafted in Europe, waterproof and breathable and GORE-TEX lined. They’re the kind of boots that can do ringside dirty work and can then be polished up to go right to the office. And who doesn’t love a pair of boots that go well with tweed?” — Lindsay Paulsen, DT Assistant Editor

Champion Full-Seat Breech By Romfh $129.95

“Romfh’s Champion Full-Seat Breech is one of the most comfortable breeches I’ve found, and I’ve tried many! The special “Curve Fit” is nipped in a bit at the waist, but offers just a bit more room through the seat and thigh—right where I need it most. The fabric, a combo of cotton and stretch micro-nylon called Dura-Dry, makes the breech lightweight and comfortable, yet provides plenty of support. Honestly, I feel like I’m wearing a comfortable pair of dress pants rather than breeches. These are an absolute must in my riding wardrobe. — Jennifer Mellace, DT Editor

Orbee-Tuff Mazee Ball for Dogs Planet Dog $20.95

“This Mazee ball gets my dog, Beans, excited for dinnertime when I fill it with kibble and she is rewarded for playing. Plus, it’s recyclable, non-toxic, made in the USA, 100-percent guaranteed and even donates to the Planet Dog Foundation!” — Leslie Warren, DT Graphic Designer
