So as some of you already know, my very first RECOGNIZED Horse Trial is in a few short weeks and I am SOOOO excited! I of course want to go the proper route and will be dressing myself and my horse up, including braiding her, which I've never done for a show (no one does it at the schooling shows around here it seems).
I'm going to braid her for the schooling mini trial this weekend just for practice, so I thought I'd start a fun thread where you can show pics of your braided Eventers! ;) And I have heard Eventers don't braid the tail, just the forelock and the mane...is that everyone's experience?
Here are the kind of braids I plan on doing on Sandie (except my trainer taught me a slightly different version which ends up with just top "button" part, not top and bottom like this video shows):
