Blue usually means the sole winner - but no necessarily of the entire show just the "class" they're entered in, and depending on the show a person might be able to enter in lots of classes. I'm not sure about those sorts of disciplines but years ago, when I was a kid, I used to just go to local random shows and pony club shows.
They'd have heap of classes. They'd have best presented led, led for horse height range, led for rider age group. Then they would have ridden hack, rider classes, age group classes, classes for green horses, bareback, pairs, fours, active riders. In the afternoon there would be sporting things, which included barrel racing, bending, flag race, keyhole, bonfield bounce. The open shows had less sporting but they'd still have a huge range of classes for different rider ages and levels, horse ages and levels.
Even showjumping schooling shows most people would enter at least a couple separate classes.
So I don't know those disciplines you mention but it wasn't uncommon to win a fair few ribbons.
