Perfect Equestrian Gift: Horsey Aprons

Sometimes I have a hard time finding that perfect gift for the horse lover.  Let’s face it…when you own a horse(s), holidays and birthdays are a great opportunity to get that item you’ve been drooling over for your horse!  We don’t actually get something for ourselves.  I do this all the time.  I usually end up buying more stuff for Taylor than I do for myself and love it!

That’s why I think an equestrian-inspired apron is a great gift!  It’s cute, different, and completely functional.  It’s also great for kids!  I might even be a little more apt to spend some more time in the kitchen if I had one of these.  I also included one of my favorite recipes below so be sure to give it a try!

“IHOP” Pancakes


  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cups buttermilk
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 heaping teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup cooking oil
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • nonstick cooking spray


  1. Preheat a skillet over medium heat.  Use a pan with a nonstick surface or apply a little nonstick spray.  If using an electric skillet, coat with cooking oil then wipe.
  2. With a mixer, combine all ingredients until smooth.
  3. Ladle approximately 1/3 cup of the batter into the skillet.
  4. When the edges appear to harden, after a minute or two, flip the pancakes.  They should be golden brown.
  5. Cook pancakes on the other side for same amount of time, until golden brown.
