Horsecrazy- you don't have to braid, it just looks nicer and well put together. It also depends on the show. At a local/schooling show they're not too important, but it's a great opportunity to learn and practice. At larger or rated shows, you'll most likely see every horse braided.
I think what you're talking about is a diamond braid? On their mane? If that's what you meant, you can do that depending on what you're showing in.
I show hunters, so her mane is pulled thin and very short.
A diamond braid, I would think, is suitable for western shows (if you don't want to cut and band)
For an english schooling show, I don't see why not. I've seen some pretty cool braids at the local shoes i've been to.
