braiding tail with ribbon?

We're going on a large trail ride this weekend and I was going to put in a red ribbon (even though Thunder's not a kicker) because people get crazy out there (there's several hundred riders) and some go nuts and run their horses up behind others, and I just want to be safe because it will be his 1st huge huge ride with that many other horses and there are some areas where there is a sloped downward hill, ect. I wanted to take this opportunity to do something cute with his tail and the ribbon. I wanted to braid it through or something, and then have a bow just below the tail bone. Any tips or tricks?? Thanks guys!

Start with three pieces of hair from the top like you would with a norm braid then with the middle piece of hair tie the ribbon to that then continue like a normal braid

OMG, I just never get tired of looking at pix of him. He is so gorgeous and he has definitely bulked up quite a bit. :)

The one thing I can say is don't get too fancy with the braid. If you do, tie a second red ribbon at the top of his tail because otherwise people might think the ribbon is just for decoration and run up his butt anyway. Good Luck and have fun!

Thanks guys!! Sm you are too nice thanks :) I was just looking back on his early years and it was so sillyhow gawky he looked. Can't wait for another year or two :)

Piper, that's a good idea, I didn't think about that.....maybe ill just do the one middle and go down to keep it more simple. Thanks!

May I suggest a green ribbon instead of the red? People are much more open minded to a green horse than one who is a kicker.

Wow, I learn something new every day here. LOL. I just learned about the whole red ribbon thing a few months ago and now we have green ribbons too? For someone who has ridden trails her whole life, I don't know much about public trail rides. :)

I was going to do a green ribbon, but after talking to others that will be riding with me we decided to do red because most people don't care about green horses out here. We were riding in an arena a few months back, and told the others that he was green, but they still kept sneaking up behind us. We ended up having to ride outside because he was dancing around so much. Now he is better, but I wanted to be safe than sorry.
