Valentines treats for the ones you love (and we are including your horse too!)
Love is in the air and it is only a couple of weeks until the special day is upon us. If you are stuck for suitably romantic ideas we are here to help.
1. Share a sweet treat
How about something sweet for your sweet? Equine Enjoy Yums have been slow cooked to preserve their natural goodness, making them for the ideal bite-sized reward! Because each heart-shaped cookie is individually baked and oozing with flavour, there’s no need to feed your horse or pony by the handful. Available in 1.5lb, 5lb, 15lb tub, 20lb bulk box. Prices start from £10 for 1.5lb bag (64 treats).Equine Enjoy Yums are not recommended for foals, insulin-resistant horses, laminitics or those with Cushing's Disease.
2. A cut above
The Eskadron Brilliant Saddlecloth is styled in a poly/cotton fabric with a quilter outer, whilst a skin-friendly cotton lining offers comfort. The pretty shade of shell pink is complemented by a pretty grey binding and pale pink and white trim for the perfect finish. Available in full size, in a dressage cut, priced £55.
3. Send a love note
Instead of buying a card that will end up in recycling, declare your love with a Tweed Love note from Timothy Foxx. Available in a variety of different British coloured tweeds with a contrast tweed back and vintage-inspired ribbon hook, each heart is emblazoned with a heart-felt message, such as ‘I Love You’, ‘Be Mine’, I Heart you’ and ‘For My Love’. Priced £8.99 each. Visit: www.timothyfoxx.co.uk
4. Be pretty in pink
It wouldn’t be Valentine’s without something pretty and pink. Do you know anyone who would adore this Dresage Deluxe Rose Pink Square stock pin? It is exclusive to Dressage Deluxe and lovingly hand-crafted in England. Featuring a sterling silver V-bar pin, it has a beautiful square pink zirconia encased in ‘brilliante sterling silver’. ‘Brilliante silver’ doesn't tarnish in the same way as sterling silver and its combination of classic and contemporary design further adds to its allure. Priced £119.

5. Jewellery with a difference
It is hard to go wrong with jewellery but with Gemosi Horse hair gifts you are bound to be onto a winner. A wonderful, romantic Valentine’s idea for horse lovers is to have a piece of jewellery handmade from the tail hair of their own horse.
Custom made Gemosi Horse Hair Jewellery is expertly made to the highest standard, using fine quality sterling silver or gold findings. Choose from several different designs, with optional Swarovski crystal charms or sterling silver beads to make this an extremely special Valentine’s Gift.
It is isn’t just for girls either, with 3 different bracelets designs for him. Gemosi gift certificates are also available which are a great option if you run out of time to get a custom piece made for Valentine’s Day, or if you feel that you can’t collect your loved one’s horse’s tail hair without giving the game away!
Prices start from €95 (£80). For more information see www.Gemosi.com.
