We all love a crisp Autumn to ease you into the winter. Alas it’s been a rather soggy start.
1. Paint the tack room
Give your tack room a new lease of life with a lick of paint. We love this look of half painted walls by Little Greene Paint and Paper
2. Buy some new mugs
These lovely mugs are by Jennie Bell and are printed from her original paintings. The sign post reads “Public Footpath” or it can be personalised, perhaps with your yard name? Take a look at her website for more horse, dog, animal and countryside inspired mugs in ceramic, bone china and enamel.
3. Stock up on warm drinks
Some Bouillon powder makes for a more hearty or satisfying drink after a cold wet ride and is far more healthy than other powdered instant soups.
4. Get a new saddle horse
5. Replenish your tack cleaning kit
Your tack will be getting wet and muddy, so make sure you stock up on plenty of cleaning kit ahead of the winter. Go natural and plant based with your tack care and try this starter set from Safe Care Equine for £17.00
6. Restock your first aid kit
This Horseware emergency first aid kit is the most compact and comprehensive we have seen for both horse and rider. A useful addition to your tack room for £31.99.
7. Door Handles
We love these door handles from And Mary. Incorporate these on your tack room door and we are sure they will bring you so much joy! Choose from a beautiful bay or stunning dapple grey.
8. Invest in a heater
9. Spare socks
Keep a few spare pairs of socks in your kit, there is nothing worse than water splashing down into your boots on a cold day! We love these camel lace tops from Powder.
We hope you find these ideas useful to get you through the winter months in style.
