When Selena's mane was really long, I really loved doing the diamond plait braid. I wish I had a picture of it but at the time we didn't have a camera...But of course she took her 3ft long mane and rubbed out three inches from the center, so to show we quite painfully had to cut it off. :/ It's been a year and it's nowhere near even a foot in length again. *sigh*

As you can see here no braiding is necessary anymore....However if I'm showing now I will do button braids. (An english thing but it just looks scraggly otherwise. :/)

Her tail however is LOVELY and thick so it is constantly braided and in a tail bag and at shows I let it out and let it fly if I can. If I can't I keep it braided.

Now I would talk about Ruger's beauty treatment

But uh. That may be a lost cause.

This is what he normally looks like I swear.

Anywho since his mane and tail are naturally curly (God bless him giving me something pretty to work with) I try to leave his down to show off but when I'm lazy I braid. XD

I just do a normal braid, or just seperating it and putting a band around it. It especially works if you drop the reins the braid or your design stops the reins from going over the horses head. Or you could do the fishnet, frenchbraid, fishtail, but usually something simple works.
