How do you get them to stay in?
The lower they are, the more they tend to slip out... and they generally don't stay perfect for very long. Make sure that when you do it you keep everything as snug as possible. Also, the thicker the mane, the more hair you can use in each increment, the thinner the mane, the more gradual you have to make it.

They look so pretty, I would love to do this on my horses....I need to start practicing.

I love my horses manes long so this is a great way to tidy them up while looking pretty

Yep, practice makes perfect. It took me quite a while to get them nice and even consistently, but I considered it fun and fortunately most of my horses don't really mind how long I fool with their mane as long as they get to snooze in the crossties.

I have to agree it does at a while to learn but once you learn it, it never goes away. The horse I learned on was really patient.

My summer camp kids always get a kick out of learning to do this, plus it keeps the horses cooler on those long summer days!
