wow!! Great work!!
Use to take me 1 hour to plait with bands! It took me 2 hours with tread!
I use bands only now! I have no idea how many plaits I do, I don't count, if tey look even I couldn't give 2 hoots how many there are. Would never do 32!! It takes me about 30mins to do the small amount I do probably about 10 - 15 at the most. Takes me longer to do the forelock, my horses use their height to their advantage and wait for me to be almost done then swipe me off the block!
I plait down, "3 fold" and tuck under the start of the plait, band and use half a can of hair spray and flatten down the flyaways LOL
Don't bother with the tail unless a friend does it for me. Plaits come out after dressage unless I have show jumping before cross country.
Here in western australia, a few years ago in the pony club run events, the open riders (non pony club) didn't HAVE to plait, last year or year before last they brought in that ALL riders have to plait for dressage. No ones really plaits for showjumping only events. Not unless it was a big high level one
