I don't have any pics but with my Arab and my Morgan both I used to braid the main like one french braid down the neck. You have to do it with the head around shoulder height though otherwise when the do stretch their neck down part of it will want to come out.

Diamond braid is simple. Take the mane and create small pony tails. Then take the ponytail and split it evenly down the middle. Create a new ponytail using half of 2 separate braids. I took a photo off there and highlighted some of it to make more sense. You will essentially just keep recreating ponytails from the same original ponytail if that makes sense.

For longer manes I have always done the running braid. Looks nice clean cut and shows off the neck very well.

I liked doing a scallop braid for my horse. He doesn't like his mane pulled so I just did a little and then cut it to a shorter length and then did this braid. I really loved how it turned out.
