I've heard of yellow for stallions too - maybe it varies a bit by area?

What counts as "young" My mare will be six next month but she has never been worked in an arena and I've never worked her around more than two new horses at a time. Though both of those will change this coming monday. Would a green ribbon be appropriate?

That actually brings up a good question that I've got - can a horse have more than one ribbon? I've only ever seen one at a time, though I know I'll be needing red and green showing my mare this season. Would you just put one above the other?

The green means young OR inexperienced horse. Your mare would definitely qualify as inexperienced, so yes, a green ribbon would be appropriate.

A rainbow stripe ribbon would cover all bases!

If I saw a rainbow stripe on a horse, I would have to question that one. Just saying...

Personally, I'd keep away from that horse! : )

Sad to say, I know of some male dressage riders who would get a kick out of it. (dont want to name names)

I use to have one in Lucky's tail for shows and trail rides because she was a kicker before I fixed that.

I've never seen anyone else use anything else though.

Most of the shows we go to, everyone knows everyone and their horse(s). We usually just go in on the new one and it's assumed that it's either green or insane. After the first show or two people get a little more bold since they've seen the horse before.

We don't usually have studs around either..A lot of the fun shows prohibit them because of the high amount of children..and the fact that if I had a stud, I wouldn't be taking it to fun shows..lol.

And the for sale..Our announcer will usually let everyone know for each of your runs that the horse is for sale and let them know to talk to the rider or owner by name if they're interested. And seeing as we know everyone..people usually ask the "show group" if they want to buy said horse, haha.
