Smile Can anyone post pictures of braiding mane/tail

I braid my daughters hair all the time. However, is it possible for someone to post a "how to" on braiding a horses mane so that the only pony is at the withers? Also, how do you braid the tail? Any ideas would be helpful.

Do you mean like french braiding or dressage plaits?

Dressage plaits

French Braid/Running Braid - Unless your horse has a long mane, this braid tends to fall out pretty easily.

Here is a good YouTube video as well. Normally the braid should be finer with thinner strands of hair taken from the sides of the dock.

WesternTale, that's a french braid, dutch braids show the braid on top, not underneath.
