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.
