To me, Father’s Day is a time when you can thank your dad for being supportive of you and your many endeavors. Chances are he could have purchased a sail boat if it weren’t for your pony, … then that other bigger pony, … and then that dream horse. So here’s to all those dads that support us crazy horse girls in our equestrian pursuits, whether that support is financial, mental or emotional, we cherish it all the same.
If your dad is a cool dad, or maybe you want him to be a cooler dad, this first item is for you. H.K. Lyons has designed the most rugged, handsome courier bag (can bags be handsome?) you can find. Made for any function: work, meetings, hiking, traveling…this bag can do it all in style. This is pricey at $268, but you only have one dad. And remember that last vet bill you forwarded? 🙂
You can’t beat the gift that keeps on giving! This equestrian print mini silk scarf from Donna Bernstein fits perfectly as a pocket square for your dad’s suit jacket. It also can be used as a neck tie or handbag accessory, just saying! Priced at $65.
This next gift option will make the idea of a long horse show more enticing for your dad. The Yeti Rambler (with Lid) easily fits in the hand and will keep your dad’s coffee piping hot or his adult beverage icy cold, depending on what time a day your division is. Perfect for all those times where you have to “hurry up…and wait”. Priced at under $20, which means you should scoop one for yourself too!
Looking for a more sentimental gift for your dad? How about this Minted personal photo calendar for his office, complete with 12 monthly pictures featuring you and your horse. Maybe pop a few pictures of you and your dad in there too, just to even things out.
Want to upgrade your dad’s kicks? These classic, equestrian inspired slip on boots from Ariat are just the ticket. These boots can easily be dressed up or down. They come in 3 different colors. Priced at $278, with free shipping.
This Custom Leather Catchall from Etsy is great for a jewelry, watch, and wallet. It also means your dad won’t misplace those things every other day! The leather and monogramming gives it an equestrian touch. Priced at $51.
