I tried the running braid, having problems. I need to practice a bit more, The braid keeps getting longer than the hair I am trying to pick up on the crest of the neck.

So I tried a draft horse braid, instead of picking up a little mane as I went along, I picked up the entire mane. A little sloppy but not bad for the first time trying this technique.

Thanks! As I said... took quite a bit of practice before I got them right. I was pretty proud of that grey horse's running braid because while his mane was long, it was relatively thin which makes it even more tricky.

The work you've done above looks really nice though!

That's funny I thought the greys mane was only about 4 inches long. Now I am doubly impressed.

His mane is so beautiful! I wouldn't dare cut it!

A lattice braid like this is easy to do:

It's not really even a braid, just a way of banding the hair. It looks cool and you can preserve that gorgeous mane!

I use that lattice on my daughter's horse when they show English. It is always a hit but we only show little local open shows.

I like the draft braid on him! Looks very sharp. I'm a sucker for long, thick manes, as long as they're well-maintained.
