'Tis the season to be equine charitable when buying Christmas cards and pressies.

Police horses in retirement Christmas card from The Horse Trust 5 for 10 cards.
We know, Christmas shopping seems to come earlier and earlier doesn't it! But while you're compiling your gift list we thought we'd just like to suggest some equine rescue and rehoming charity gift ideas that will make you feel twice as good about giving at Christmas.

First up, an easy way to do your bit is to buy equine rescue charity Christmas cards. Most charities do them but for starters we spotted some we particularly liked at The Horse Trust (see above), Heroes (homing ex-racehorses), World Horse Welfare,  and we can't resist a Thewell card like this one from the Blue Cross....

Christmas Hold Up from Blue Cross 5.99 for 10 or 15.47 for 30 cards.

We've found one very well received gift for pony loving girls and boys who can't afford their own is the various 'adopt a horse/pony schemes.' Redwings provide a really good service for 12.50 and you can choose from a Standard Nosebag package (postal) or Online Nosebag package. Horseworld also an adoption package for 15 which includes a cuddly toy. Other equine charities provide similar schemes so we recommend that you look around and choose a charity within visiting distance especially as with the  two we've mentioned the recipient is usually invited to their adopted horse or pony's birthday party!

Redwings also got the thumbs up from us for their gift shop. We particularly liked these cute keyrings, 6.99 each.


And we thought this hand painted sparkly Carnival horse (14cms), 4.85, that we found prancing around in their Christmas decoration section would actually look good hanging on the wall of a girls bedroom all-year-round.



Happa had quite a few good gifts too including these mini handbags 4.99 each.



We have to say though, some equine charity online shops could do with offering some more interesting and well designed pressies!

However,  some charities like World Horse Welfare have come up with some novel ways you can give to the horses and ponies in their care. For instance you can treat a World Horse Welfare horse to their very own Christmas TLC Gift  package for 12.50.


Or for 3 you can buy a Hero's ex-racehorse a sack of carrots for Christmas morning.

So, these are just a few ideas that will hopefully give you a charitable Christmas feeling! Happy Shopping!
