Gift for Equestrian?

Hello everyone :)
I don't post on the forums often, but a close friend of mine has her first eventing show on her mare coming up soon and I would like some ideas for a nice gift. Money is a little tight, so expensive tack is out of the question, however I am handy with a sewing machine. I believe her XC colors are turquoise and lime green. Any thoughtful ideas anyone? TIA

Some wraps in her colors? Or how about a saddle cover?

Saddle cover, saddle pad would come to my mind.

Just to add... You can buy a cheap plain pad (say, white), and then add logos and whatever else yourself. I believe cakemom did something like that for her kid?

I did just that. I put a cording around a plain pink pad and then I did some monogramming with crystals.

I would get a white baby pad, then add a spun turqiouse and lime green piping around it. Then monogram her and her horse's name, one in the blue and the other in the green. The baby pad would cost like, 5 bucks. Not sure about the theread and whatnot, but shouldn't be too bad. And she would like it a LOT more than something storebought :)
