I know around here they don't allow horses that kick to show. It is a danger to the other riders. Something else to is some people at the show may not know what the red ribbon means so I would let me know why you have it in their tail.

Personally I wouldn't show that particular horse at this time because if he accidentally gets someone hurt it falls back on you regardless if you have his tail marked. I know when I got into horses I didn't know what the red ribbon means until it was to late and my horse got kicked. Let me tell you I had it out with the horse owner. I had asked and she didn't tell me I was pissed. This was a good friend of mine and she knew I had never seen that before.

Needless to say we don't ride no more. It is better to let people know at the show maybe even have them announce it over the intercom so no one gets hurt.

Striving to always excel in everything I do. Whether I fail or not I always try to do better than last time.

I hate when people line head-to-tail with me at shows! And guess what, my judge today told us to. Then she like yelled at me cause my horse wouldn't go head-to-tail. That marks a bad judge!!! I always look for red ribbons on tails and always stay far away. There was a young yearling at the show today and she had a red ribbon and she got like a first and a third, not sure. I do not know her :P

Lining up head to tail is perfectly normal for the show ring. Its not bad judging if you cant make your horse do this, it is bad training on your part as you havent taught your horse manners!!

My 3yr old would happily stand head to tail with anouther horse and would stand all day if nessecary (I always leave enough room from the horse in front of me, which is good ring craft).

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

they should NOT mark you down. Tying a Red Ribbon in the tail of a known kicker is good horsemanship! it shows consideration of your fellow show goers.

:) one of my good friends ties a red ribbon in her horses tail even though she doesn't kick just to make sure riders give her extra room anyway. some people can really get up on you becuase they are nervous or just don't care.
