Pony gifts for pony mad girls

Pony mad girls (and women) can drive everyone to distraction with their tails of ponies and horses - but a little girl's love for ponies makes present shopping for her family & friends much easier!   What's more, you don't have to know any more about horses & ponies other than the fact that one end bites and the other kicks and provides excellent manure for the garden... All you have to do is to show your little girl that you understand her passion for ponies...Here are some ideas..

Keep children occupied on the wetter days of the holidays with horse colouring books!   They can get creative and colour in their favourite animal - horses!  Most kids love colouring in - and there's plenty of choice.  They make for good value, as well, since they'll keep children occupied for a while.
