How to Properly Thank a Friend?

I'm travelling this summer and was worrying about how I'd know my horse was in good hands while I was away. I had a friend offer to look after him while I was gone, at her farm, and I was ecstatic! I know her animals are exceptionally well cared for, and I trust her completely with my horse.

Now beyond the fact that I have peace of mind, my friend has offered to do this for free. I have pleaded with her to let me pay her, but she won't accept my money! Her reasoning is that it won't be costing her anything so I shouldn't have to pay her, but I want to compensate her somehow!

So, my question is, beyond the verbal thank-you's and loaves of banana bread I've baked for her- what can I do to properly thank her?

What a kind friend!

Does she enjoy any specific type of entertainment? (concerts, ball games, horse shows, etc) If so, you could offer to take her out once you're back for a fun evening. Another option could be buying something nice for her farm, such as some saddle racks, grooming supplies, or something.

Endiku has some great ideas - you could also bring home a nice gift from your travels

I would provide her with a liability waiver.

Thanks to both of you- those are very good suggestions, especially the night out. I may have to do a combination of multiple things to feel not 'forever-in-her-debt.'

This is a good idea- did you have any particular clauses in mind?

Certainly a gift from somewhere where you are traveling would be fun for her, especially if you find something horse-related!

I have the sweetest little bell - like the kind a shop would put on a counter for customers to ring - that's shaped like a turtle a friend I pet-sat for got me from London. It makes me smile.

A nice gift card at Christmas to her favorite tack store. She certainly can't turn that down, now can she?

She works at the local tack store! Haha. I'll have to scope out her wish list very carefully.

I would just google some, don't have any handy but someone else on here might.

On a happier note! LOL!!! Get her an apple tree!
