Over the years of competing, you’ve likely collected quite a few horse show ribbons. And while many riders hang theirs on a wall or toss them in a box, others get creative and make a keepsake. They create pillows, wreaths, blankets and more! Have some fun with it and design something to display. Each memento will be filled with memories of your shows.
