The curcuits I did never got mad, they were happy to recycle them to the next class.

I know one lady that weaves the ribbons each horse earns into a stall decoration that she hangs at shows.

The wreath is a great idea! I've heard of doing the quilts but never tried actually making one. I might have to give that a go sometime. Thanks for all the ideas!

For those asking about the refusing ribbons... All the circuits I show at, you have to pick up your ribbon at the announcers stand. They hand them to you only during flat classes. Most of my classes are jumping (ie. 2 o/f classes and a hack in the division) so I just never go back and pick them up. Sorry, I should have clarified that.

I, personally, could care less about the ribbons..especially if there's paybacks, haha. My mum always wants to see what I won though, and she can't do that with just money, so I always grab mine. Our group classes get them handed out in the ring, but any class that's a single rider has to get them at the announcer's booth. I generally run games, so mine are all from the booth.

My friend tells them to keep the ribbons though. His pony has won more than enough, and he ran out of room to hang them atop his curtains. I on the other hand take them and set them in a pile on the counter after my mum ooh's and ahh's over them, haha.

Here are mine and my daughter's from fun shows and the grand champion I won showing my Morgan ages ago...I would never get rid of it, I cannot afford that level of showing much and it is precious to me.

Beautiful Susan, Like you I worked way to hard and spent way to much money for every ribbon I have. For years I never had a trailer and I would walk to the show, often 5-6 miles, show for the day, and hopefully hitch a ride home with someone. I often walked home too.

Every ribbon holds a special memory for me, most of my horses I won those ribbons on are gone and I am glad I still have the ribbons we worked so hard for.

My last ribbon cost me over $1100 between gas, hotel, entry fee, stall, exibitor partys and food for my groom ane me and three days.
I could not wait for the presentation of ribbons, 7 hour drive ahead of me, I had the show officials mail me my 60 cent white ribbon, and I was pissed they folded it in half.

Every ribbon is in a box in the basemant. My latest though is ironed and hanging proudly in my equestrian room.

Here's some neat ideas.

Horse Show Ribbon Quilts

Mine are all hanging on the wall, on curtain rods, anywhere I can fit them

Equiniphile, I love that website for teh quilts and pillows. I had to share that with all my barn friends on FB. I think that is probably the coolest idea and I hope one day we will have enough ribbons to get to the point of making a quilt.

Maybe a dumb question, but to those of you who talked about clubs recycling ribbons...

I show dogs (in the AKC) and recycling would be difficult because the ribbons all have the day, month, and year printed on them. Is this not the case with horse show ribbons?

No they don't usually have a dd/mm/yy on them - they will just usually have the organistaion printed on them.
