Horse Crazy Christmas Gifts - Under $10

Updated on December 26, 2014

Horse Crazy Christmas Gifts Under $10 for Horse Crazy Girls

So, you have a daughter or granddaughter who is truly Horse Crazy. She's probably between the age of 8 and 12 years old, right? And, you'd like to get her a little something horse-related without completely spoiling her and without ruining your bank account.

Well then, you've come to the right place!

I have an 11 year old Horse Crazy Girl. So, all of these items are highly recommended by both daughter and Mom.

Horse Poster Book

I like this Horse Poster Book the best. But, if you have more than one horse crazy girl to buy for, you can always get "The Horse Breeds Poster Book" and the "Horses in Action Poster Books."

Every horse crazy girl wants her room decorated to the hilt with horses. You can always get a her poster, but there's something about 43 posters that will make a horse crazy girl's heart go pitter-patter.

 

How to Draw Horses

My Very Favorite Art Book: I Love to Draw Horses! (My Very Favorite Art Books)
My Very Favorite Art Book: I Love to Draw Horses! (My Very Favorite Art Books)

My almost 10 year old daughter loves this "How to Draw Horses" book the best out of the several that she's used. Why? It's technique is simpler, but more flexible. It's not too serious, and it's not too childish. PLUS (and this is her favorite thing about the book) it gives LOTS of creative ideas of how to expand and add to your horse picture - different settings, different colorings, different riders. Oh, did I mention that it shows you how to draw a rider on the horse? Yessirree. Yee-ha!

 

The Movies

Other than riding a horse, and reading about horses, the next best thing is to be transported into another world via The Big Screen (or the tv screen in the living room). Hollywood has made some true classics about horses - and girls and children who love them.

Misty
Misty

Based on the novel by Marguerite Henry, Misty is set in the 1950s/1960s at the famed Chincoteague Island off Virginia's coast, and heralds two young children with a heart for hard work, honesty and horses.

 

The Posters

What's the benefit of the individual posters over the Poster Books? It's simple: THEY' RE BIGGER.

The Books

Horse Crazy (Saddle Club(R))

My daughter read every single one of the books in this series, in order - and then read it over again. She loved this book series.

 

The Bookmarks

I love bookmarks! Every reader does! Teach your horse crazy girl to keep her pages flat and use a bookmark to mark her place rather than a bent page. These beautiful horse bookmarks will make that life lesson easy. Every girl loves a pretty new bookmark.

THE Must-Have Magazine

Young Rider
Young Rider

Okay, I'm bending my Under $10 rule for this magazine(by $3). Why? Because this is a gift that will remind your horse crazy girl of you all year long. She will read it from cover to cover - over and over and over again. How do I know this? Because my 10 year old horse crazy girl does just that! A gift from her sister, she loves it to pieces.

Share the excitement over watching your daughter or granddaughter fall in love with horses!
