All the adults had the limelight in our Christmas edition of the best gifts to buy your loved one, but this time, we thought we would let the children be showered in gifts. At Old Dairy Saddlery, we have used our magic to compile a list of horse riding accessories and gifts that children of all ages will love.
Whether it is a treat for persuading the little ones to get involved with the housework, they are new to horse riding and they need kitting out or simply to show you love them, there are plenty of gifts you will almost be stuck for choice.
This pretty little gilet is straight-cut with a drawstring around the bottom of the jacket. The outer shell of the gilet is a smooth to touch peach skin soft-feel microfiber, while the inside boasts a printed polyester lining and padding which provides both warmth and comfort for the lucky child who gets to wear it! The gilet can be worn all year round. As well all know, British summers are a little temperamental so it’s bound to be dragged out of the wardrobe in the supposedly warmer months, its light enough for Autumn and Spring, but can be used as one of many layers when it’s frosty and wintery outside. The gilet – that comes in fuchsia, blue, or navy appealing to both sexes – has intricate embroidery both on the chest and the collar and contains an inside chest pocket as well as the two, flat outer pockets.
Safety is imperative when horse riding and it should always be first priority, for all who horse-ride not just children. This Rodney Powell Elite Protector is the most popular of body protectors and with good reason. Not only is it lighter than most, more breathable AND has great flexibility – making it super comfortable for your child – it’s adjustable to fit their nimble frames perfectly giving them the most protection possible. Your child will be free to test the realms of riding while you can be worry free and be sure that they are comfortable and safe at all times. The Rodney Powell Elite Protector is at a bargain price of £55 at Old Dairy Saddlery and it adheres to BETA testing 2009 Level 3, BS EN 13158 Level 3.
