I was hoping you might be able to help me with some horse-riding related gift ideas!
I need to buy my uncle (late 40's, recent returner to horse riding, doesn't own a horse) a secret Santa present, approx £30 and I was thinking about something to do with riding, which is his main hobby.
However, I have no knowledge about horses or horse-riding, since my pony trekking days about 30 years ago!
Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of something suitable?

not a horse rider either but i know a couple , i would think gloves would be crucial. High vis bits and pieces? Not exciting hmm. Fancy hoof pick? Hopefully the proper horse riders will be along. I was thinking protective clothing but i doubt you can get body protectors for £30 Sad

Try the following websites... Robinson's country and leisure, ride away and equestrian clearance.
All will have men's riding wear such as smart jumpers or toasty socks.
Sealzskin gloves are a favourite or how about paying for a hack/some lessons?

Thank you, Hermione, I'll take a look at those websites.

Much appreciated!

Nice gloves, another vote. Except knowing his hand size might be a problem, gloves come in lots of different sizes for riding.

So failing that, a polo neck t-shirt should be a sound bet & thermal socks.

Not polo neck t-shirt, just polo t-shirt!

Just a thought, but a smart body Warmer is always useful around the yard and when riding

Thank you all! You've been life-savers!
