I am told February is a short month but I don’t believe it – February has felt like the longest month EVER! I don’t know what it is…perhaps its the weather or the final slog to get through the challenging “Winter with horses” lifestyle but to me March sounds much more appealing and positive so roll on next week. In the meantime I think it’s time for a little pay day treat. With lots of new products arriving at The Horse Diva HQ there is plenty to choose from. Here are a few of my personal favourites…
Equetech Empire Ladies Breeches in Petrol. I love the striking colour of these ladies breeches and the paisley pattern on the seat is really pretty whilst being rather handy giving you a slightly grippy seat for those “Spring” moments! They are super comfy with a lovely high waist and soft stretchy material.
My colleague described the Ladies Toggi Fleece Socks as “the best fluffy socks out there” today and I couldn’t agree more. Warm and comforting – these prevent you having freezing toes. These socks are also nice to wear at home at the end of a long day when you need to put your feet up.
I love buying new products for my horse (find me a horse owner who doesn’t!) and as we head towards the end of another winter its a good time to give your equestrian supplies a bit of a revamp. The HyIMPACT range of brushing boots and over reach boots are great for day to day use and brighten up your equestrian wear even on those dull grey days.
I easily get bored of wearing the same equestrian clothing to the yard but an easy way to add a bit of vibrancy without too much expense is to change your riding hat silk depending on your mood. I have been wearing a navy spot one over the winter but I think it’s time for a change. One that will look great with my brown riding boots and riding gloves is the Leopard Design Riding Hat Cover.
My final favourite is The Horse Boy book. I have just started reading it and I am really looking forward to continuing. This is a true story of a father’s journey to heal his son’s autism through his relationship with horses. It’s great to unwind with a good book after a long day at the yard or at work.
Well I can’t believe June has passed me by so quickly! Looking back it’s been a month of good progress with the giant pony and hooves have even left the ground with a return to jumping, much to Skip’s delight (and mine actually!!). With two weddings ahead seeing some close friends get married plus another show planned for me and Skippy I think July is going to be over before I know it. However before we rush ahead with future plans it’s time to look back at the best selling horsey gifts during June at The Horse Diva.
Gloves have been selling really well this month, with the most popular design from Carrots UK being the velvet sparkly women’s horse riding gloves. New to the market and also due to the hot weather, the HY5 lightweight women’s horse riding gloves have also been popular and are at great buy at just £12.00. For children we have nearly sold out of the Ravensdale children’s horse riding gloves but don’t worry there are more on their way so just drop us an email if you would like to be notified when they are back in stock!
For the yard, the Bentley Horse Grooming Kit in Pink has sold well. It’s a great gift and also super useful for summer shows due to the cute box it comes in! For something a little different, the Hooftorch has been really popular with great feedback – an innovative gift under £10.00 for the horse owner who has everything.
In Hertfordshire, we were thrilled to see the sun shining so much this month and this has inspired the purchase of women’s polo shirts and children’s pony t shirts! Here are a couple of your favourites…
Finally, our range of horsey bags have been really popular this month. Must be all that shopping and pampering we are enjoying! There is something for every style and budget, including horsey shopper bags as well as the new and instantly popular Milly Green range including cosmetic and wash bags.

Finding the perfect gift for a loved one can be a challenge and if you’re looking to surprise your teenager this is no exception. I’d like to think my many years of shopping (market research obviously!) have helped me to develop my skills at putting gifts together and hopefully my friends would agree as I pride myself on my present buying! Therefore to help ease your shopping experience I have put together our range of Horsey Gifts for Teens are here are a few of the highlights…
One of our top selling products, the Carrots Equestrian women’s horse riding gloves are suitable for teens, adults and children 10 years and over, fitting a wide variety of hand sizes due to the four way stretch fabric. These gloves feature leather reinforcements at the fingers and thumb to provide excellent rein grip and durability. Tried and tested we love these riding gloves and the wide range of designs means there is a pair suited for every teenager’s style.
Us horsey girls love to look stylish when riding and these horsey hoodies will suit fashionista’s who love to have a bit of fun. Great with jods for riding or with jeans and leggings for mucking out, another best seller for the teenage horse gift.
Bath, Body and Beauty
Every teenager loves to get glammed up but then again who doesn’t when as an equestrian you spend so much time picking poo and getting sweating hot in your jods! The love of all things equine can even be part of your teenagers beauty regime with our lovely wash bags and bath and body goodies.
For teenagers who are lucky enough to have their own horse or loan pony, the Bentley horse grooming kits make fabulous presents. Bright and beautiful and practical too, our wide range of designs means you can pick your teenagers favourite colour to match their other equestrian equipment.
When away from the yard teenagers work extremely hard for continuous exams and coursework deadlines. To brighten up these testing times why not introduce our horse stationery to wish them luck and success in their studies.
Happy Shopping and remember to just give us a shout if you get stuck and need some help xx
Last week we bought you our Horse Diva summer style and as promised we have since expanded our children’s horse riding range. We have some beautiful designs of T shirts available for little ones to wear the yard and also out and about with shorts or leggings during the summer time. Many designs are just £7.95 each so a bargain horsey gift for a little pony lover. All we need now is the sunshine to come back (please?!). Here are just a few of our favourites….
We also love the new range of embroidered horse riding clothing – these two hoodies feature the Cookie and Cross Country designs and are great for children to wear whilst keeping their arms covered when horse riding.
For older children and younger teens we have also selection a fun, modern range which we hope you will love as much as we do! Choose from the Horse Crazy polo shirt and hoodie or the Flash t shirt and coordinating zip top.
Of course we have coordinating horse riding hat covers, gloves and socks to go with all of our equestrian clothing – just see our website for our top suggestions. And remember to just drop us an email if you want any further advice – we are more than happy to help you put together your own Horse Diva style.
