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???

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.

Blue- Stallion
White- Horse or Rider with vison impairment

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

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