What to do with all your ribbons?

Currently most of my horse show ribbons are in a storage boxes except a few of the most important ones I have on rack (below). They have so much sentimental value. I have the very first ribbon I ever won almost 30 years ago. I can recall so many hours practicing, late nights cleaning my tack, waking up at the crack of dawn to start the show day, and all the excitement of hearing my name being called for awards.

Here are some cool ideas of what to do with all those hard earned ribbons...

Very Cool Post here!
Well, if I had my way with the ribbons and 1 trophy I have...they would be on display inside a warmly accented Cedar tack room! Since I have no tack room(or barn) ,they are in a box .
I do love the ribbon headboard especially!

Wow, I would be saving all those beautiful memories as well. What a lot of hard work you have done and how talented you are to earn so many awards.

Really cool pics. I love the last one! I've been letting my 3 year old play with my old ribbons. Maybe I shouldn't.
