Braids for Hunter show.....??

So im wondering what to do for braid for my Hunter show. Are these okay?


PS. I was going to do the same braid, but use rubber bans and not yarn. Is that okay? Also I was thinking of doing her forelock like this also.

Thanks

yes they're fine & yes do her forelock like that aswell
rubber bands will be fine (they are over here so i'm sure they will be over there!)

Yarn is best. Rubber bands can look tacky.

We always use yarn, and if you do, try to find a color that matches your horse's hair. I can't tell from the pic you posted, but you also want to be sure the braids are on the right side, not the left.

Thanks guys. The only problem with the yarn is that I have none and the show is on Saturday...so I will try to make it look good with rubber bands! Thanks again!!!

PROBLEM!!!
My horse looks AWFUL (and by awful I mean HORRENDUS, TERRIBLE, JUST PLAIN BAD!!!!!!)with the forelock bun. Can I keep just her forelock loose?
T.I.A.

No, if you braid the mane, you have to braid the forelock, it will look worse and lazy if you don't. And I don't think bands look tacky at all

Stormy's right, it just looks bad if you only braid the mane. It's just easier if you do the normal french braid for the forelock...and bands are just fine to use too. I used them all the time and they looked just as good as braids with yarn.

Good luck at your show!

For hunters... those braids will be okay, but you ideally want flat braids for hunters, like so:


For a forelock braid, don't do a bun, do it flat, like so:
