At last weekend’s show, the Championship classes had champion-style ribbons all the way through the placings. I’m familar with the blue-red-yellow of the champion ribbon and of the red-yellow-white of reserve champion. I even have a third place, year-end ribbon that is yellow-white-pink. I’ve don’t recall seeing them down to eighth.
A championship ribbon is composed of the placing as the center streamer and main color with next two placings as secondary colors. The Wiki entry on horse shows has a list of ribbon colors.
Championship eighth: brown, grey, baby blue.
