Your shows must have very different stalls/temporary stalls than they use in my neck of the woods.

Open sides would cause all kinds of issues over night. Scary to think about.

The other thing I've heard for braiding is to put a towel/cloth over their eyes (or just the one on the side you're braiding)... that might be worth a try too I suppose.

I wouldn't recomend putting a towel over his eyes, that might scare him....

You could always take the time to braid the night before and use one of those hoods that goes from the head and covers the neck. That should keep the braids in place overnight. Just check in the morning in case he rubbed a little and some popped out.

Like one of these: Centaur Lycra Hood with Zipper - Dover Saddlery.
