    Thank you :)

    I plan on doing some braids today. Maybe weave some ribbon into the braids :)

    Btw, the diamond braid can be done with medium to long manes. It's really easy. One day I did it to my horse and I took her to the park and walked her and a few kids loved her mane :) I wouldn't leave it in more than two days...I did and it kinda pulled a lot of hair out.

    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 :-/

    Hehe Thanks!! And to be honest I kind of did the same thing as you but don't tell! I would sew them but them chopped off the little ends of the braids so they wouldn't stick out all over as well...I had to retrim his mane when I took them out lol it had also looked like a little kid had gotten ahold of it. But SHHHH that's a secret ;D Thankfully his mane was only around 5 inches long or so.

    I had it for our Dressage/Hunter Show, but it wasn't rated or anything like that. I like its uniqueness as well. :) Then again I love showing off grooming lol....I love grooming in general.

    Wow, the scallop braid is beautiful!

    Here's my very-amateur-and-rushed attempt at a french braid, just to get his mane up off his neck in the heat. If I were braiding for real, I'd make the end a lot prettier instead of just sacrificing my own ponytail to tie his up, lol!
