How do you braid a horse's mane like this:



I don't know what it's called, but I really want to know how to do it! Sorry for the bad picture quality; I scanned it! Please tell me if you know!

You have to know how to French braid and when you learn that you just do it down their neck.

I think it is an underhanded french braid. Just do a french braid but instead of going over the top go under. When done this way more of the "braid" shows. Kinda hard to explain hope that makes sense.

I better example on how to do a running braid. If you do it underhand like Vidaloco said it really makes the actual braided portion stand out nicer. I disagree with how she ended her's though. I either finish it like I would for a typical button braid, or I thread the whole end braided section up behind the french braided portion...not just sewn into the front.
