I wish I’d known what to do with my old horse show ribbons. I used to have boxes of them. I remembered every class and every horse that I’d ridden, but it seemed pointless to keep them. Finally after one move I threw them away.
Now I realize that there were far better things to do with them than leave them at the dump!
Recently I saw my first ribbon quilt. I was just blown away. What a great way to showcase those ribbons.
Now, quilts are a fairly expensive way to showcase your ribbons unless you are very handy with a sewing machine. Here are a few more ideas that are less expensive.
If don’t want to keep your old ribbons, or only plan to save a few special ones, you can donate them to your local riding program (or therapeutic program) so they can hand them out when the kids do a good job.
