I braid my own horse, so I just fix them if they need it. I normally do them super tights there's no frizz! But water works great for me(:

Don't use hairspray or gel because it won't work.. I've tried. It makes it look worse if you touch the braids when you ride.(:

Have you ever seen cattle spray? The same brand make an adhesive that works very well. My trainer once used it to glue her top hat on... It was interesting after .

Let me see if I can find a picture...

Super tight braids is how I used to do it! No fly aways at all with my horses

I put quickbraid or hair gel in the hair right before I braid, then braid tight. Anything that pops out throughout the day is cut off.

Hair gel and hairspray work wonders for me and a small pair of scissors for the couple of hairs that always just refuse to go down no matter what you do.

I've heard QuicBraid works well for this. Also nice for helping keep a mane to one side.
