What do you do with your ribbons?

I have hundreds of show ribbons and no clue what to do with them. I've stopped picking them up at shows because half the time I end up throwing them out. I've heard of people making them into things, and I'm thinking I might try making a few into belts... I know you can donate them to therapeutic riding places etc. but all of mine have barn names on them so I don't think they'd take them. Any other ideas? I don't like cluttering up my walls with them but I feel horrible just chucking them!

I feel it is beyond rude to the show producers, the barn and anyone else involved with the show to not pick up your ribbons.

It isnt Taffy, if you politely mention to them that you don't feel you need the ribbons, just say thank you, and they gladly keep them to use at other shows - it saves them money! All the times I've seen this done there is no nastyness.. they are thankful!

Don't they hand them to you in the ring and you refuse?

I myself wouldnt refuse and yes they do hand them out in the ring but you jut say "Thank you, but would you mind if I let you keep it because im running out of room (without sounding like a snob)" they usually say that's lright and thank you - like I said less ribbons neded = more $$ for the clubs/show's savings.

My mistake! Sorry Op I guess it is common practice.

Most of the shows I show in you have to go get your ribbon from the announcers stand. They don't hand out ribbons in the arena for barrel races.. I also agree that it saves money for the people putting on the show..

A really neat idea that I'm thinking about doing is making a wreath out of my smaller ribbons.. I have a ton that I've collected throughout the years and they are just sitting in a box..It's a cute idea.. I love the quilt idea too though.

I will never refuse a ribbon - maybe because I have never shown - always been the strapper... but this is just what I have seen people do. Any other peoples ideas? I love the buckles Roperchick - never seen them here though lol
