Gift For Instructor

Hey, guys.

I need to find a nice gift for my instructor, who is leaving. I'd like it to have a practical use, something she could use on her pony or her arab.

Any ideas?

Would she like a headstall or a breastcollar?

Howabout a sparkly jewellex browband? Haha sorry, I'm a dressage rider so I like jewelled stuff XD oh how I love stereotypes. Ummm maybe new sparkly stirrups? Or what about new gloves? Or bell boots? Or just boots for the horses? Haha wow, I'm sorry if she doesn't ride English, I've been naming a bunch of english gifts. Maybe if she rides western big sparkly spurs! If she uses spurs. :)

She rides English. :)

I was thinking of smoothtalking her show colors out of her and having a beaded/ribbon browband made..

The funny thing about her Arab-- he's a *mutant.* 16.3hh. She SWEARS he is 100% Arab, but I think he HAS to be at least 1/2 TB.

What's the price range you are looking for? If it's low one (say, $20-30) don't get cheap bridle or anything like that because it'll be junk. I'd personally go with the pad (seems like I never have enough for myself :) ). May be one of those custom ones (especially if you know what colors she likes). Another thing could be bell boots or splint boots IF she uses those, nice whip/crop or spurs (again IF she uses those). And personally I'd never go with the cloth and boots (unless you know the size and taste of the person for sure).

Not sure if you're interested, but SmartPak has a cute "Life Is Good" gift set. It has a nice mug with the logo/horse on it and a round sticker with the same logo/horse.

They are really cute. Gave one to the farrier for Christmas and to some barn friends as well. Everyone really likes them.

Practical to me would be a starbucks or similar gift certificate. It is a nice treat and something that doesn't collect dust.

Over the years I have given my trainer many different things. The one thing he still have and hangs in his office is this

Once framed it cost me less then $15. However I cut my own mats and do all my own work as a pro photographer.
