Ribbon Lengths are very versatile and can be used for a variety of reasons.
Most commonly the ribbon is used in the tail of a horse, enabling the rider to easily communicate a horse's situation.
Typically the colour of the ribbon length indicates:
Red - horse/pony liable to kick.
Green - horse/pony young or green (inexperienced).
White - horse/pony is for sale.
Yellow or Blue - horse/pony is a stallion.
Each ribbon length is approximately 1 metre long.
