these took me an hour and a half. there are 29 braids including the forelock, usually i do at least thirty in the mane but i was a little rushed so i made them a little bigger.

My first go at hunter braids took forever and Ocean's mane was way too long so they are a little sloppy. The first pic is our trial run the week before, the second is Ocean all braided and me with crazy face ;). The third picture is the running braid I did before our lesson to keep his mane out of the way, the picture is kinda crappy. I used my phone and it was quite bright.

Here's my shoddy attempts at a running braid:

Spot at a fun show (his mane is super thin so it comes out very easily)

When his mane is not braided

Savanna (super thick and long mane, holds better, but hard to get up to the crest)

How do you guys get the type of running braid that stays along the crest of the neck?

@ DancingArabian, you have to keep the braid pulled tight and grab the mane closest to the scalp/crest. It's easy to let it drop so you have to make sure you pay attention!! Lol
