To do the scallop braid, you braid down a whole bunch of braids like you would normally do for a hunter braid but you don't pull them up, instead you attach the first braid to the third braid, the second to the fourth, the third to the fifth, etc. It takes a while and I use needle and thread but it really looks nice, especially if you don't want your horses mane TOO short and still want a neat braiding look.

I love doing the scallop braid. My pony has two toned hair so it looks super cool on her mane. :)

My geldings tail is two toned It's really cool when it's plaited. You can kind of see it in this picture, the braiding is a lot lighter than the rest of the tail.

My girl has two toned mane and three tone tail...the three tones isn't real noticiable since the brown is almost black looking.

Here is a pic of her mane..i washed her and her hair do got all soggy and gross looking. She usually has a fro.

I love these braids! All I have done with Gracie is simple braids. I am planning on doing something a bit prettier this weekend when we go riding!

How long canyou keep the diamond braid in for? How long of a mane is needed for it?

Icyred - I lovelovelove the scallop braid! I have attempted this several times with my mare, and while I like the results I achieved, I know mine isn't the greatest version of it I need to achieve a more unified length of the braids, I think? My mare has a LOT of mane. This picture is the rubber-band-rigged "run through" on her before I took her to a show... at the show I braided her up then sewed the scallops in. I trimmed the ends, and when I took the braids out it looked like a 2 year old had cut her hair... oops Had to straighten it out.

For show purposes, my understanding is that it is acceptable for dressage shows, but it isn't a common braid - I liked it's uniqueness.

I always like the running braid, too - but everytime I see one of those in "good condition", the next time the hose walks by it is falling out :-/

PS - Sorry the pic is so huge - I didn't realize it'd upload to "GIANT" - it just a cell-phone pic.
