Ok, I have been riding for a while now and I'm just getting ready to show. But, one thing I really want to learn before I do is to french braid my lesson horse's tail.(Or plait the horse's tail.) My instructor has showed me on a rainy day lesson and I tried but it wasn't really good. I just bought my own rubber bands today hoping to practice some more.I want to know if any of you have any tips. Please share! Pictures are welcome along with step by step instructions if you can come up with any! Thanks!!!!! :):):)
I would recommend not putting anything like showsheen or any product in the tail prior to braiding because it makes the hair slippery. If you wet the top part (on the dock) before you start, it'll make it easier to keep the strands together, and keep all the little fly-aways in. :]
ALSO, when you're braiding, don't pull down, it'll make the braid loose and saggy. You want keep it tight and pull out from the dock... if that makes sense.
