How to do Mane for English and Western Show?

I have a horse show this weekend and my pony is in mainly western but also some English classes. I'm trying to decide how to do his mane. It is a long mane and I do not plan to cut or pull it. I wanted to do something that would be acceptable for both disciplines. I thought about a diamond braid? I was curious about what other people do. It's just a 4-H show, by the way, so nothing to serious.

Honestly, just leave it loose.

Of course, make sure it is brushed and looks nice. I show in multiple events too, and my horse has a gorgeous long mane. So I just make sure to put Cowboy Magic in it and Show Sheen to make it "slippery" and flowing, and clean-looking.

If your English classes are last, could you do a running braid after the Western classes? That would give a nice clean look, just practice it a few times before the day of the show.

I've heard that if your horse is primarily western (even though you do English too) you band it, and if your horse is primarily English (and you do western too) you braid it. Or you can just leave it alone, but make sure it's neat. That's what I usually do. :)

If you want to go a bit fancy (and have some time on your hands) you could do something like these:
