It’s the most wonderful time of the year — gift giving and seeing the joy on the faces of your friends, family and loved ones.

Use this gift guide from select Barrel Horse News advertisers to help find the perfect present for the horse folks in your life.

Robbie Phillips Saddlery
Robbie Phillips, son of former saddle maker Cecil Phillips, remodified his father’s original barrel racing tree. The bars allow a rider close contact to the horse while riding and the flexibility to keep your feet forward. The flared bars help restrict any pinching while the horse is turning in full stride. The saddles are available in stock of 6 3/4-inch to 7 1/2-inch extra wide.
