What should I get my riding instructor for her birthday?

Hey guys!

I need help thinking of what to get my riding instructor for her birthday. Most of the stuff I've found online, like thermoses, for example, aren't really her thing. She's older, in her 50s or 60s I think, and she loves horses obviously, but she's really quiet so I don't know what kind of things she likes.

I got her a box of chocolates for Christmas so I can't do that again, but I think she liked them.

Any ideas? Give me anything you got, I have NO ideas right now!

One of the painted ponies collector statues. That way it gives you an add on gift to her collection. A horse hair bracelet made from her horses hair. Or maybe a Pandora bracelet. :)

Does she have her own horses? Get a painted portrait of them.

If you are going to teach a horse something and have a good relationship, you don't make him learn it - you let him learn it.

Get her a box of long stem carrots.

Go to the florist and buy an empty box, tissue and bow, go to market and find carrots with the tops still on.

I gave a box of long stem carrots to a friend, for a barn party and she still talks about it.

If not carrots then defiantly the truck and trailer.

If she has her own horse you could get her a saddle pad with her horses name on it? Or a nice leather halter!

Gift card for her favorite tack place or online store. My instructor gives the biggest smiles for horsey gift cards.

I love to treat facials and/or manicures for hard working outdoorsy people! Lord knows I need one and they make me feel so much better!

I really like the carrot idea, pretty cute. Probably a gift card for a tack store..? I'm not sure!
