From graphic socks and coffee mugs to cookbooks and cooking utensils, plus some additional horse-centric items, one can find a gift for every type of dad . . . even ones who have everything! 100 percent of proceeds will benefit Equest, a nonprofit that provides equine assisted activities and therapies to the special needs community and veterans.
