Mother’s Day gift ideas for horse lovers

With less than a week to go until Mother’s Day, there’s plenty of time to search for the most perfect gift to show that special lady she means the world to you.

For horse loving mums, Bransby Horses is the perfect place to pick up a thoughtful, equine related gift either online or in their shop in Bransby, just north of Lincoln.

There’s something for every budget and if money is tight, why not treat her with a surprise day trip to the welfare charity, as it’s completely free to visit.

There’s a wonderful café serving delicious hot food and cake and miles of wheelchair and pushchair friendly walkways to take a stroll along.

There are over 280 horses, ponies, donkeys and mules onsite as well as a fantastic children’s play park and picnic area.

Here are Bransby Horses’ top 10 gift ideas which can be bought through their online shop or at their Visitor’s Centre in Bransby near Lincoln:

  1. Afternoon Tea in the Bransby Horses Café for £26 – please book at least 24 hours ahead (email to book)
  2. Sponsor a Bransby Horses’ resident from their Sponsorship Star scheme. This is a great way to support the animals in the charity’s care, and also means you have a special friend to come and visit or read about in Bransby Horses’ updates.

  1. Bransby Horses Four Hooves cotton apron: £9.95

  3. Horse placement mats: set of four for £8.95

By donating towards its general funds, you will be making a real difference to the lives of hundreds of horses, ponies, donkeys and mules: £10
  5. Horse Travel Mug: £9.95
  6. Emerald Purse: £8.95
