Four ways to treat your horse this Valentine's Day

With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, it is time to start thinking about treating you and your horse to something special this month. Whether you spend the day together exploring, tackling some new jumps or just having a good clean up of the stable, February is a month for showing your loved ones just how much they mean to you and we should make no exception when it comes to our horses.

Here are a few ways you can treat your horse on 14th February.

Hi-vis gear
The darker evenings in February shouldn't mean you miss out on spending quality time together. Your horse still needs regular exercise during the colder months, so make sure you are visible and safe while on the road. Adorn your beloved mount in some of our hi-vis gear and ensure you're both protected on your next hack.

A new rug
While your horse's natural winter coat may keep them warm during winter, they may need a little more protection from the wet weather here in the UK. Take care while choosing a rug for your horse, as adding extra layers can cause them to overheat. We have a wide range of rugs available to choose from at Church Equestrian and a highly experienced team who are always on hand to help you choose the perfect rug for your horse or pony.

Edible treats
If you are looking for a smaller gift to show your four-legged friend some affection over the next month, treat them to an edible gift. We stock everything from licks to tasty nibbles - just remember to hand them out in moderation!

Your horse’s coat still needs caring for during the colder months. Regular grooming of your horse will also provide you with an opportunity to notice any problems your horse might be suffering with such as cracked hooves, injuries and illnesses. Treat your horse to a pampering session and take care of their coat, mane and tail through the winter season.

However you decide to treat your horse or pony, make sure they know how much they mean to you with a little extra love this Valentine's Day.
