4th Annual Equestrian Blogger Gift Exchange

Ever since I started blogging, I’ve hosted a gift exchange around the holidays for equestrian bloggers across the country (and all over the world). It’s my way of saying thanks — thanks for reading, thanks for commenting, thanks for all your support throughout the entire year. I haven’t been as active this year as I have in the past, but every time I do blog I’m reminded of the amazing little community we’ve cultivated on this small slice of the internet. So here’s to you, fellow equestrian blogger!

How it Works

For all of you gift exchange virgins, here’s the skinny: those interested in participating send me an email with the info below by Wednesday, Dec. 7. Then I match everyone up, and you have until Christmas to buy and send your gift. The recommended monetary value is $20 (no hard and fast rule, but let’s try to keep things mostly fair so no one feels left out). Usually participating bloggers write a post about their gift, and I create a linkup so you can share in all the awesomeness.

1. Send an email to flyonovereq(at)gmail(dot)com with the following info by Wed., Dec. 7!

  • Your Full Name
  • Blog Name and URL
  • Shipping Address
  • Some information to help your Secret Santa shop for you (gift ideas, a bit of information about yourself and/or your horse, etc.)
  • Whether or not you’d be willing to ship to Canada and/or the UK

2. Check your email on Friday, Dec. 9 to see who you’ll be shopping for

3. Send your gift the week of Dec. 19 (or before, if you’re on the ball)

4. Receive your awesome gift and thank your fellow blogger 

It’s really that easy! Feel free to share this on your blog or social media — the more the merrier!


Fly On Over is an equestrian lifestyle blog devoted to connecting horse lovers around the world. By providing equestrians with practical tips and tricks related to horse ownership, discussing training techniques for horse and rider, as well as covering industry news.

  1. Any chance we can move the date in, so we have time to order something personalized or take advantage of Black Friday deals? Either way I’m in, though. Thanks for doing this!

    1. Second this ^. I’m in either way but it would be awesome to be able to take advantage of Black Friday deals! And would be easier to get a jump start on shopping before I travel for the holidays. Let me know if I can do anything to help! Hillary

    2. I didn’t even think about this! I think what I’ll do is match those who have submitted by Wednesday, November 23rd and send out those emails that day. That will allow those people who are on the ball the chance to take advantage of Black Friday and/or order personalized items, etc.

      Then I will do a second round as planned — that way those of us (like myself, obviously) who are NOT on the ball can still join in.

  2. I didn’t catch on to this until the posts with the gifts started popping up last year. I’m not a prolific blogger, but I do read a lot and post from time to time. I’d love to join in. I’ll send you an email!

  3. I am the world’s worst blogger this year, but would like to participate, so I’ll send you an email. I have been anxiously awaiting this post. 🙂 Last year was a lot of fun.
