Some but not all G1 ponies were released with ribbons. In particular many of the late year ponies were only sold with a brush or comb. Identifying exact shades of ribbon included with each pony is extremely difficult, if not impossible, due to two factors; Hasbro was not perfectly consistent with what ribbon/shade was included with each pony, and ribbons are prone to fading over time.
The majority of pony ribbons are a 1/4" (0.65 cm) wide, double sided satin polyester. Unlike most craft ribbons sold today, vintage ribbons are noticeably thicker with a satin finish sheen on both sides. Average length is 8 3/4" - 9" (22.2-23 cm); there is little standardization of overall length, anything from 21.5 to 24 cm is common. Ends are cut at a 30-45 degree angle, (40º average), with diagonal ends parallel. Later ribbons may be heat cut (fused ends), while earlier ribbons were not. (All measurements are point to point.)
- Argentinian ponies had ribbons with a different type of weave (plain weave satin ribbon) 
- Some UK ponies may have had ribbons with a different weave as well

Flutter pony ribbons are slightly thicker than princess ribbons.
