first running braid ever!:)

So yesterday I went out to feed at my barn with the intention of riding after, however when I brought my horse inside I realized he had thrown a shoe. So instead I spent time grooming him, and my friend taght me how to do a running braid :) So here it is, My first "running braid" ever :) Next time I need to make the braid itseld bigger/thicker and make it a bit higher so I can get the scragly bits by his withers into it... hopefully :) But im proud of my handy work haha

I don't ever braid that little bit in. Braiding it too tight will cause the horse pain when he flexes, and could rip hair out when he goes to eat some grass. Good job, though!

This is my first running braid. I do it loose enough and tie it with two elastic bands to help keep it in. My boy is so good, a running braid will last him a week before it comes unraveled :)

I like it! I'm used to doing my running braids right up on the crest.

Well you did better than I did! HA HA!
Looked better before he tried to snatch some grass. It lasted for 5 days, but at least it put him to sleep!

Would love to take credit for this but sadly I cannot.

My sister's first running braid, she unlike me actually knows how to deal with hair. I'm flat out even doing simple plait .

I tried one on my boy but he rolled and ruined it. His mane is wicked short though so it probably wouldn't have held even if he hadn't rolled.
