By

If you've got a horse lover in your life, you'll have no problem finding the perfect gift. From the the decorative to the practical it won't be hard to find a gift in almost any price range.

Tipperary Riding Vests

I'll start this list with a safety item that is great for nervous riders, anyone who jumps, or rides green horses. Body protectors protect your torso from the impact of a fall or kick. They may feel a bit cumbersome at first, but you will get used to the feeling. Tipperary Riding Vests come in a variety of colors and sizes, are easy to care for.

Lucinda Greene's Equestrian Challenge

It's probably a good thing I don't have this game on my computer because I know I wouldn't get any work done if I did. Lucinda Greene's Equestrian Challenge lets you create the prefect horse and compete in prestigious horses shows in cross country jumping, stadium jumping and dressage. There are multiple playing levels, thousands of options for creating your horse and rider team and you'll be competing against some of the world's top riders. The game comes in PC and Playstation formats.
