Looking for the best Christmas gift ideas for a dear horse lover?
You’re not alone – I hear you!
Every Christmas, thousands of people try to think up original gift ideas for their loved ones.
It isn’t always an easy task for those who are not into horses or equestrian sports.
You also don’t want to be drawn back to the same old jumpers for your brother, slippers for your father, or a pair of socks for your partner.
Anyways, the best presents don’t always fit underneath the Christmas tree!
Let’s think out of the box for a second this year, especially that not every horse present is pleasant.
Christmas gifts can also be shitty!
Yes, what you saw is real horseshit!
That’s the exact gift-wrapped horse manure Christmas box that, believe it or not, Trump’s Treasury Secretary of State in the United States of America, Mr. Steve Mnuchin received at home on Christmas Eve last year (2017) in order to protest a tax plan.
Americans, their President Mr. Trump and his secretaries are just funny! Aren’t they?
No other current presidents can give us this much fun and laughter, I guess.
A Los Angeles psychologist called Robert Strong has admitted “gifting” US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin with a box of manure in what he says is a protest over the Trump administration’s tax bill.
Mr. Strong shared photos on Facebook of the card that he said accompanied the deliveries and reads: “Mrs. Mnuchin & Trump, We’re returning the ‘gift’ of the Christmas tax bill. It’s bullshit. Warmest wishes, the American People. PS – Kiss Donald Trump for me.”
That was the bad new!

We’ll focus on gifts for ladies, not just for the traditional cliche “ladies first”, but because they represent the majority of over 66% of the riding population, and also because of a recent sports injuries research showing that horse riding is the riskiest sport for girls.
Girls courageously take an enormous amount of risk to pursue their deep passion for horseback riding!
The research analyzed admissions to accident and emergency (A&E) at two Oxfordshire hospitals over a three-year period. They found children and adolescents aged between 1 and 19 years old accounted for almost half (47.4%) of those injured during recreational activities.
Riding was found to be in the top three riskiest sports for girls in this age group, along with trampolining and netball. The only activity to cause more injuries to girls than riding was trampolining, with 213 cases admitted, compared to 142 (8%) for horse sports.
The research revealed a clear gender divide in the popularity of equestrianism, with the number of riding accidents involving girls vastly exceeding their male counterparts at 92% of admissions.
The most common age for girls to injure themselves riding was 13.
Statistics on the nature of injury showed that girls aged 5 to 9 had a high percentage of fractures from riding, accounting for 11 out of 16 recorded injuries in this age group (68.8%).
The research found fractures were the overall most common cause of A&E attendances for sports injuries, totaling a quarter of all admissions.
In trauma data on 324 accidents that led to hospital admissions, horse riding was cited in 16 incidents, which involved females 87.5% of the time.
Riding was also the most likely cause of sports-related head injury in girls (12%) according to Horse & Hound.
Despite acknowledging parents efforts to encourage children to participate in sports to avoid obesity and be healthy, however, this data raises a red flag and whistle blow a serious need to raise awareness on injury prevention, safe and secure equestrian sports and installations.
I mentioned this here so you pay attention to safety and security when buying tack and clothes for your loved ones or even when choosing a riding school or instructor for your beloved daughters or partners.
