Check out Dres­sage To­day’s fa­vorite picks for the 2017 hol­i­day sea­son.

The win­ter months in more north­ern ar­eas might not of­fer ideal con­di­tions for dres­sage train­ing, but the sea­son surely has a beauty all its own: the blan­ket of smooth snow that cov­ers your fields, dot­ted with trails of hoof­prints; a warm, post-ride cup of co­coa by a crack­ling fire; the bright cho­ruses of Christmas carols you lis­ten to on your dark drive to the barn. Win­ter of­fers the perfect ex­cuse to bun­dle your horse up in a fuzzy new cooler and gather with barn friends over hol­i­day sweets.

here at Dres­sage To­day, we like to think of the frosty days of win­ter as an even bet­ter rea­son to pull on your com­fi­est flan­nel pa­ja­mas and curl up with the lat­est is­sue of the mag­a­zine. In the fol­low­ing pages, we hope you en­joy the se­lec­tion of gifts we found for dres­sage rid­ers.

1. Ed­i­tor’s Pick: Bar­bour Waxed Cot­ton Util­ity Jacket

“I’ve been cov­et­ing a Bar­bour jacket for years. how­ever, I could never de­cide on a style un­til I fi­nally found the one I just couldn’t say no to at Dres­sage at Devon last fall. While the Bar­bour Waxed Cot­ton Util­ity Jacket was an in­vest­ment, it’s ab­so­lutely been one of the best pur­chases I’ve ever made. The work­man­like, yet stylish, fit has seen time both in the sad­dle and out on the town. I just love it.”
