The fashion in hunters (don't know if that's what she shows) iused to be to have either have a leather belt with brass plates with the horse's names, or friendship style bracelets - leather strap with a snap - with a brass plate with the horse's names.
So she'd be a very cool kid with four nameplates on the belt, or four bracelets, two on each arm.
My favorite gifts from students were photos, and photo collages. Someone took a very funny cartoon called "The Riding School" and labeled all the characters in the cartoon with the names of my school horses and students and then framed it. It was very funny and I cherished it; it was a wonderful gift.
My adult non-showing boarders bought me a really nice set of English style nylon saddlebags with a monogram, I used it when I took them on away trail rides, and I am still using to this day!
With her parent's permission, a really good lock blade knife, every barn girl needs one, with her name or initials on it so it doesn't walk away, and a sheath or some way to attach to a belt loop or belt. If you can figure out a way to make this look a little girlier, that would be great too.
(Nothing says feminine like a dirty, mussed barn girl in boots and jeans with a big honkin' knife on her belt, unless it's one with the knife and a hoof pick!)
I've got lots more ideas, but they get pricier from here!
