My horse has a fairly long mane, but it is thin from being exposed. I decided that I want to begin protecting her mane so that it can grow in thicker.
So a few days ago I looked up how to do that and I saw how people put their friesian and lusitano stallions manes in a running braid to protect them. So I tried it, and you'll never guess what happened!
The next day the very front of my horses mane was ripped off! I think she must have caught the braid on something!
So I was wondering, are there any people on here who grow their horses manes long by braiding them? Are there any tricks you've learned to keep them from getting caught and pulled out?
And for that matter, would you even recommend braiding at all? Should I try something else?
Thanks for the help!
