I wish everyone knew about these. I frequently use a red and a green ribbon on my mare as well as the gelding I ride (HUGE personal space freak >.>) but I'm always having people coming up on our butts!

Everyone in your life is meant to
be in your journey, but not all of
them are meant to stay till the end.

The sad thing is, is that no one pays any attention to a ribbon or what you announce when you come into an arena.

My first show with Lucky I literally had everyone's attention in the arena and told them that my horse kicks and I expect them to stay a safe distance away..What do I get? Adults ponying their children coming within a foot of my hind, people literally running into her hind trying to squeeze between someone who actually listened to me. I got another kid walk within a foot of her hocks on their 10hh pony while I was standing by the fence and flailing around (thank god I caught her BEFORE she threw a big kick).

I told the gate keeper that she kicks...What does he do? Follow her as closely as he possibly can with the gate and almost fell on his dumb a$$ when she started kicking like a maniac. Stayed away after that, lol. Joked with me trying to say he should've listened, haha.

I'm putting a red ribbon on my horses every show I go to..not because they kick, but because I don't want anyone else bumping into me.

I did know about the red ribbon. And if I saw one on a horse's tail I would stay as far away as possible. I did not know about the other colors. Now all I have to do is remember what they mean. This is probably not an issue out on the trails where we go...but you never know.

The only ones I see in my area are red for kickers. That is on the trails. Yellow here is for stallions, but they are rarely marked. And that is another issue...
