I admit, after Viva Carlos posted hers, I opened up Excel and proceeded to type in all my winnings per show. And since I have under 3 years worth and had written on the back of all my ribbons which are all right at my desk, it was a pretty quick and easy process. Plus, I've only shown with one horse.
Here's my 2012 results, my first full season. No fancy pie charts, just a collection of events, results and a color coded ribbon section.

But then, She Moved to Texas also posted and added fancy pie charts. I've never made pie charts. So I looked them up and it took a bit of clicking to figure out how to get the pie to render, but in less then 30mins I had a simple chart to oogle.

Here's some closeups. I got the jars from TJ Maxx which was the cheapest place but have also seen them in craft stores. I keep 4th place + on in the tallest jar that has my champion ribbons hanging from it - that jar sits on top of a plastic container so that I got the perfect height. The silver plate uses a velcro hanger where one side sticks to wall and other to plate (non-damaging) with thick velcro binding the pieces to each other.

|Trophy area and a Breyer that I etched the socks to match Sam's. The star was already there and is a close match.|
Eventually I will run out of space and then I'm not sure what the plan is. I want to restrict it to this area of my house only. I could add another shelf above this one which is part of my desk. Or I could hang a string across the wall and hang from there (might do that with champion ribbons eventually). Or perhaps the trophies will have to go in a box to make more room for more ribbon jars.
