Doing something like this is a good compromise as well:
This is SUCH a neat idea :o
If only I was dexterous enough to pull it off x)

I believe that according to the rule book, if your horse has a mohawk, you have to do your freestyle to an alternative rock or heavy metal song. And instead of saluting the judge, you have to stick out your tongue and give the KISS "rock on" hand gesture.

Since dressage is also about impeccable neatness, you might consider roaching his mane to create the same clean lines as braiding does.

For dressage, the mane must be plaitted. If you don't want to or can't plait it, then hogging is acceptable too.
