Dressage Braiding

My horse has a medium length mane (probably hanging an inch or two from the base of his neck). What kind of braiding should I do at dressage shows?

A neatly done running braid will be ok if you are at a schooling show. Unless you have a breed of horse that is accepted for their flowing long mane which are braided in a running braid by some (such as a Friesian or an Andalusian), I do suggest you trim the mane and braid it properly if you plan on doing more serious showing.

Just google running braid and you'll find plenty of pics and videos. I suggest you do a braid that is as close to the neckline as possible as you do not want to take away from your horses conformation and neckline while showing.

Have fun!!

For dressage I would rossette - ie plait down roll up and sew... if its only an inch or two long it should be an okay length :)

Rosettes rosettes rosettes all the way, unless you have a horse that is supposed to be shown (in breed classes I mean) with an untrimmed, flowing mane, and then you just do whatever you can make look good - but they MUST be braided in some form!

I don't want to hijack, but if you have a non-long hair breed such as a Quarter Horse or a Paint, is it okay to leave the mane long and do rosettes for schooling shows?

For english classes yes, I do believe so.
