I have all mine up in my cubicle at work... it helps to cover up the drab gray and is a nice conversation starter. I'm no where near having hundreds of them though

At the shows that I go to (dressage), they hand them out at the show office with the judge's remarks after all the scoring is done. You'd definitely still want to go get the sheets to see the judge's comments, but it would be pretty easy to tell them "thanks, but no thanks" for the ribbon.

Of course if you have enough satin ribbons, and know where to get rug making (or quilting, or sewing) supplies, you can always make two out of satin - one lined only with cotton to protect the ribbons and keep it together, and the other lined with nice warm fill to make a warm winter one!

Edit to add; another idea is to sew them direct onto a rug that you know fits your horse... I would want to do it with a brand new rug though and use that only for shows (washing the ribbons might damage them and you'd want a clean rug to put on your horse at shows). But idk, I feel like making it custom to fit your horse in a specific way is a better way to go than sewing them onto some off-the-shelf rug that happens to fit ok.
Hmm... Roxy has a lightweight cooler that fits her perfectly, but it got a huge rip in it last year. Maybe if I patch the whole I could sew it onto them since I know it fits her well and would be comfortable.
