It’s time for the holidays and we love incorporating horses into our lives when we entertain. Here are a few simple ideas to create new memories and traditions with your friends and families.

Decorate your home with horse-themed elements:

Organize horse-themed activities for the family:

  • Host a horse-themed movie night: Cuddle up with blankets and snacks to watch a classic horse movie like "The Black Stallion" or "National Velvet." Here are some of our favorite horse movies!
  • Play horse-themed games or download mobile apps for video games!
  • Create horse-themed crafts: Make your own horse-shaped ornaments, decorate horse-shaped cookies, or paint horse-themed pictures.
  • Read horse-themed stories: Share heartwarming tales like "Black Beauty" or "The Horse Whisperer" with your family. There are many others in our selection of books!
  • Plan a horse-themed scavenger hunt: Hide clues around your house or backyard that leads to a hidden horse-themed treat or gift.

Indulge in horse-themed treats:

  • Bake horse-shaped cookies or cupcakes using cookie cutters or molds.
  • Create horse-themed snacks using fruits and vegetables, such as apple slices for horseshoes and grape clusters for manes.
  • Make a horse-themed drink, such as a "Wild Mustang" cocktail or a "Neigh-borly Punch." Incorporate horse-themed elements into your holiday traditions:
  • Leave carrots and apples for the "reindeer" (or for your imaginary horse friend) on Christmas Eve.
  • Watch the classic holiday movie "It's a Wonderful Life" and pay attention to the horses throughout the film.
  • Give horse-themed gifts to your loved ones, such as books, movies, toys, or riding lessons.
  • Donate to a local horse rescue or equestrian organization in the spirit of giving.
  • Go on a sleigh ride! It’s a great way to get fresh air and fun for the whole family.
