The team wins, not an individual. Money is usually split evenly from what I understand, couldn't comment on the ribbons or such though.
There's no harm in taking your cob to try it out and see how she does. I took Alahna, my OTTB mare, and she did fantastic. She doesn't have fast turns or much down quite yet, but I was able to be a productive member of the team with her, especially after she realized she was suppose to chase them, haha.
I know a lot of the groups and teams around here are very welcoming of newbies and will mix their team up to let you have a try and give you tips during your run.
It's awesome fun, even if you're horrible at it, haha. I'll definitely be taking Alahna more often when I can afford it.
