Can anyone recommend a present for a 10 year old girl who is a big fan of horse riding, please?
Are there reliable websites to buy such things, like a box with brushes etc?
Budget £20-40

I have absolutely no idea as I don't go horse riiding at all and she lives abroad so don't know what sort of things she likes.
Thank you

How about going for a nice bit of jewellery? I like Equestrian Collection&page=1 this collection. A nice horse shoe necklace for £20ish and bracelets for £30ish.

Cheaper to post too.

I don't know if that link has worked properly. Hi ho Silver has an equestrian collection.

Most dead horsey girls would love that sort of thing.

or a subscription to a horse magazine like your horse or horse and rider, they do they overseas - might need to be a six month one for that budget. Robinsons country and leisure is good. SHe might prefer clothes like tottie or mad mares. Post on the tack room board to get some good 10 year old girl suggestions - my dd is only 3 and the horsey girls i know are all teenagers.

These are all lovely ideas, thanks a lot, I am going to look at these links in more detail now.
I got her a silver horse pendant last year, so maybe the jewelery box would be a good thing to add. Her dad mentionned practical stuff like a box with horse grooming brushes but your ideas are more girlie so I think she will like them.
Thanks for your suggestions

Yes re mag subscription. At age 10, I'd go for Pony.

You can also sponsor a horse at Redwings, a charity that takes in injured/abandoned horses and donkeys. It's fairly cheap and you get a photo of your horse and a little pack. It;s quite sweetly done but I realise not everyone wants a charity thing

tesco still seems to sell horsey things such as these harry hall gloves

Horse mags are fantastic, these days. You can fantasise about buying the horses advertised in the back. As well as getting lots of tips on riding and horsecare from the features. I wonder if they do 'free gifts' for subscribers like other mags do?

If her dad is suggesting brushes, perhaps it's because she needs them?

Redwings is a horse charity. Sells loads of horsey stuff or you could 'adopt' one for her and they will send her updates thoughout the year.

A set of grooming tools is a super idea.I cant do links but there is a shop called 'Robinsons' in Haydock which has an online shop as does Derby House in Burscough.
Riding gloves are good too at the lower end of budget.I'd avoid jewellery unless its a tie-pin with a tie.Is she in Pony Club?They sell things online too I think.

My dd is 9 and horse mad. She would like a grooming kit with a box that you can stand on so that you can reach higher up the horse. I will have a look and try to give you the details.

It is called an Easi Step n Carry tack box. If you google it you get lots of options.
You can buy the brushes to fill it on Amazon.
