M-T-G is great.
4.Get her mane to lay flat and nicely?
Band it the day before a show. Do like 20 little braids, and PULL DOWN when you braid.

1. Braiding with thread looks really good, so its really handy to know how to do it.
There's plenty of videos on Youtube, but I think this lady actually has the best plaits.
2. I'm guessing you're getting ready for the show season? First of all, keep your pinto rugged. Then, use a whitening shampoo each time you wash her. The one I use is called White Glo? I think and it comes out a pretty deep purple. At the show, use bady powder or chalk on her.
3. Don't overbrush it or wash it. It strips it of its natural oils that promote growth and fullness. Prevent her from itching it, if she's an itchy pony. Use a tea tree shampoo or something with tea tree in it. Use a tail bag.
4. Getting a mane to lay flat naturally takes a bit of time. When its wet, push it over all onto the side you want it and flatten it with your hands. Brushing it will cause the hair to break and its often very tangled whilst wet. Use skinny hoods and neck rugs whilst in the paddock.

ok thanks guys
I use the glo-white shampoo as well and it works really good, I will have to keep using it. Yep, I use baby powder and she does't rub her tail so that is an extra bonus.

Is that you in your dp? Your PC colours look a lot like my old pony club. Are you in zone 9?

Gidji: No im not, I am in Zone 25

RedTree: It does matter if you can see the thread as you want to look as pro as possible but at low level shows, it is best to hide it but it is not as strict as royal level. But any showing is strict lol

Oh I know!! I just went down and no-knoted Tess's tail and plaited it down, trimmed her ears, pulled her mane and chucked her rug on

Plaiting- Practise..internet helps and get people to show you.. Should of got mum to teach us! Thread should not be seen!

Whitening- Khonkes clean sheen, chalk

Tail- Plait it the night before waves make it fuller or a false tail is the way to go, palomino (the yellowish cream) ones are the cheapest then just use human hair dye to dye it black ;) or Blow dry it

& to get the mane flat chuck on a skiny hood for a week it should train it so sit pretty and flat..

Have Fun! I am excited for you!

Going to bed with a Dream
and waking up with a Purpose!
