If the show allows it, and you have a fairly long mane, I really like the look of Dutch running braids!
If you know how to make a regular running braid, a Dutch running braid is the same thing except instead of crossing the outside strand OVER the middle one, you cross it UNDER it. This makes it look like a full braid instead of it just looking woven on the bottom if that makes sense to you.
If you don't know how to do a running braid, all you do is start at the top of the mane, grab a section and divide it into three parts and start your braid like a normal braid. Then, every time you cross over a piece you add to it. It's essentially the horse equivalent of making a French braid on yourself.
