How do you display your ribbons?

I was thinking about rearranging my horse show ribbons and was just wondering how everyone else displayed theirs. Mine are on 3 or 4 strings on one wall. I'll try to get pictures later :) and how do you guys hang your grand/reserve sashes (lol is that what their called?). They don't really hang on the string very well. Oh and feel free to add pictures I love looking at how everyone displays theirs :) thanks!

I'm afraid to say I don't -- they're stashed in a box in my closet. I might suggest, though, that if you know someone (or maybe you can do it yourself) who knows carpentry, you could have them make a wall mounted frame with dowel insets and hang the ribbons on the dowels. Dowels are round long sticks by the way.

I had my entire wall in my room covered in them. Then, I started to cover the other wall. Then, I decided to paint my room, and they never made their way back. Now, they are in a box under my bed hahah

Mine are all on coat hangers hanging from my curtain rod. I'm going to make horse rugs and blankets eventually when I get around to teaching myself how to sew.

...Every rider has that one horse that changes everything about them...

Yea, I was thinking about buying one of those displays but wasn't sure :) And how do you guys display those neck sashes? (If you get them) Mine is awkwardly dangling off a shelf :P

I recently bought a house and really wanted to display my ribbons, etc. After all, I spent A LOT of time and money on those things - I should get to show them off. Anyway, what I did was bought 2 cheap curtain rods from IKEA and mounted them on a wall in my spare bedroom. It works well and is much cheaper than buying actual ribbon racks.

For the neck ribbons/sashes I wrapped them around the curtain rod and secured them in place by using a "regular' ribbon to clamp them down. So, it created a 2 layered look basically.

On an opposite wall, I put up a couple of IKEA shelves to hold the trophies we had won along with a few extra special ribbons: the first we ever won as a pair, my first ever blue ribbon, and our first ever competitive trail ribbon. I hung some of my favorite pictures of her around the shelves to complete the look. My fiance thinks it's a bit weird and egocentric, but I love it!

I did a very cheap and easy way to hang my ribbons. I just took a tack to put two holes in the wall, one straight across from the other, unfolded a paper clip all the way and inserted the two ends of the paper clip in the holes so its straight across. Then you can simply put the clip of the ribbons over it. And I just did this all over my walls. I put all the firsts at the top and placed my seconds around them then organized the rest around those.

I used a sheet of white plastic lattice and used a staple gun to put it up on my wall, then you just slide the little metal tab on the back of the ribbon under the lattice. I like it a lot because the ribbons aren't fixed down so if you get more you can rearrange them.

I love this thread! I have only been in one show so far and have two green ribbons. My fireplace has vents on each side to spread the heat to both side of the living room, and I just hang the ribbons on the vent. If we actually use it I will probably move them. Hope I get enough one day to make a special shelf!
