Yeah, that makes it hard, learning from a book or online is hard becasue of the twisting and looping of the mane ribbon really is something you need to see. The drafts in teams and cart mare or gelding have it done. It is just another braid, like braiding for the hunter ring, right?
It should be fine for your mare, I wouldn't use it for riding just because they need to stretch but if she is in cart or showmanship it is fine. I use to teach some of the horse members in 4-h it just for fun. If you find that you can't do this one, look into the contiental? Or diamond braid. Or the running braid. Haffie's are offend shown with them in and their good for everything except for jumping. Good luck.
