Question Ribbons for tails

Ok so I know the following:

Red ribbon- Kicker

That's it. I also know(ish) that

Green ribbon- Young horse/inexperienced??? Is that right???

If you were to use a ribbon of say red on your horses tails- would this be problem in the way of insurance????

And-just out of intrest- is there any other colour ribbons with meanings???

99% of the time, its the riders fault.

Here's a thread that was recently posted discussing ribbons:
tail ribbons - warning "signs"

I don't think that putting a ribbon in your horses tail would raise insurance, but I've never had to deal with it, my lease mare wears a red ribbon, but I've never heard her owner mention anything about it altering insurance.

I always was told it's Green for a green horse and a Red as a caution that it might kick. When I showed hunter under saddle I almost always put a red ribbon in my horse's tail because a lot of the other kids that would show at my stable's "open show series" had a bad tailgating problem and would actually let their horse run into the back of yours.

I've never heard of it being an issue with insurance or any other entity.

Apparently I'll be starting to use white with Lucky if BO/Owner doesn't sell her..According to her she's about to be completely blind. *rolls eyes* She doesn't seem not a bit blind to me when she flings her head up like she thinks I'm going to hit her while I go to move a piece of her mane. .-.

But anyway, that's off-topic. :p

mwhaha

I'm only aware of the red one frankly. I used bow instead of the ribbon (looks more cute too :) ).
