Can you button braid an Arabian for dressage?

I am a dressage rider and mainly ride Warmbloods whose manes all get button braids. I have an Arabian gelding in training who has a nasty, thin, medium length mane. His owner is convinced that this mane will grown longer, but lets face it, beautiful manes and tails are mainly genetics. You can apply all the products you want, but real hair comes from genetics. His tail is the same way, so he will need a natural tail extension for the shows. My main question is can I just shorten his mane and give him button braids rather than attempt a running braid? I think he would look a lot nicer with button braids and for the time being, he will just go to schooling shows, but are button braids allowed on Arabians for USDF rated dressage shows?

You can use ANY braiding on ANY breed horse for dressage.

The problem will be if this horse shows in Arab classes where the mane would NOT be shortened ( arab rules).

I probably won't necessarily focus on the Arab circuit, just schooling and USDF show for all breeds.
