I've been plaiting horses since I was 8 years old. My mum taught me how. I've never used bands, I don't get on with them at all!
The grey in the photo had to practically be pinned against the wall to plait him as he was not having it and we had to twitch him to get his forelock done! The forelock was nowhere near as good as it should have been but I wasnt getting myself killed to do it properly! The mane was dangerous enough!
At the last show Reeco went to Mum drove the lorry whilst I plaited reeco in 20 mins in the back of the lorry, we were running late as per usual!
This was the result!
Not bad concidering we were in a moving vehicle going through twisty turny country lanes!
