What are you getting the horse lover in your life for Christmas? Do you need some ideas? Here are a few items that I love that might help you out.
Whipin' Wild Rags
Spring may seem far away at the moment, but before you know it your horses will be shedding that winter coat and you will be covered in horse hair. I've always used those metal shedding blades to get all the winter hair off my horses and I've never been impressed. This past spring I came across Strip Hair. This is an amazing product with multiple uses. Not only will this groomer pull off all that winter hair, but you can use it to clean off mud, give your horse an extra shine, or a good massage. Additionally, you can use the saddle pad groomer to pull off all the hair that builds up on your saddle pads. I purchased the Strip Hair Bundle and I have used every product and they are all amazing! Now through Cyber Monday, the StripHair Bundle is on sale for $48.00, normally $64.00

Chelsey Stimson is the surviving spouse of SO1 Tyler Stimson, a Navy SEAL and former Marine. Chelsey, a veteran herself, beautifully paints American flags onto feathers and sells them on her Etsy site American Feathers. You might have seen some of your favorite NFR cowboys and cowgirls wearing them in their hat bands. These feathers are such an amazing tribute and a great way to show your American pride.
Mounted Shooting Log Book
It's been proven that tracking your progress can help you reach your goals. This log book is the perfect way to do that. I developed this out of necessity and it's been a game changer for me and many other shooters.
You can pick up your copy here.
Give your mounted shooter the gift of fun and a weekend well spent. Offer to cover the cost of the entry fees for a shoot. This could range anywhere from $80-$1,000 depending on what shoot they want to go to, but it's totally worth the memories that will be made. Plus the mounted shooter in your life will be filled with joy!
Portable Panels from Affordable Portable Products
What I love most about this company is that you can get some great portable panels at a reasonable price. They come pre-assembled, or if you want to save a little $$ you can get the "Honey-Do" box set. They come in horse or pony/mini size, and in two or three rails. Additionally, you can choose the color of the connecting pieces. Be sure to check them out soon as they have some awesome discounts going on for the holidays.

After just one ride she was hooked. Since then she has won State and Regional buckles, qualified for the CMSA World Championships several times, and placed 7th in the world in 2014.
