If this was a horse that you owned I would suggest working with a trainer or instructor to help you work through her problems but I do understand that this is a lease horse and you probably don't have that opportunity. I guess I would put the red ribbon in her tail but be very cautious, if something does happen you may be held responsible for any damages that she causes and to me a lease horse just isn't worth that risk.

I know this is late, but I figured I'd throw my .02 in. When I trail ride with a group I always put a red ribbon in Vida's tail whether she has kicked lately or not. I do it just to keep people from riding up too close which makes me nervous thus making her nervous.

since the show was cancelled, are they going to reschedule it? if they are, then here's what i think:

at first i thought you just meant a red ribbon meaning to make your horse's tail look pretty. if i don't know what a red ribbon is, then there's a good chance that a few others won't either. so, therefore, i would put the red ribbon on your horse's tail to be safe, and tell the other riders in your class to avoid red tails as well. then, everybody wins! everyone is safe, and you gave the other riders that knowledge so they can be safe in future shows!

ya i agree. and if you get to close to any one or if some one comes up behind you just do a circle and lt them pass. Dont put you and your horse in a situation that you dont want to be in..
