Here are some options I'm thinking of...
- Layered diamond braids (the andulusion)
And if anyone has any other suggestions shoot!!
I don't like running braids unless their layered or zigged. I think their sloppy looking and I can't really do rosettes because their not acceptable in Western events. Whatever it is I WILL be taking out for barrels.
The events I do that one braid pretty much has to cover-
-reining, jumping, english pleasure, bareback, halter, showmanship, dressage. And other speed events- but since those are almost always at the end- I plan on taking braids out. With my other horses I've never had to braid- their manes were short and thin and I cut them short. I love my guys mane and refuse to cut it!
