How to prep an Appy mane for show season.

I have a POA with a very 'Appy' type mane (short and thin, yaaay) that I want to show hunter/jumper this coming up summer and it's nearly impossible to braid her mane well so I was wondering what you guys did to support growth? I'm totally lost.

idk how short your talking but my paints have thin manes and I keep it clipper cut a 3 inches long. Mtg might make it grow some. If you braid it make the braids bigger n thicker. For thick manes you make the braid thinner. Im not much help here sorry

Most appys I see with thing whispy hair have their manes roached. You can attempt to do MSG on it but really it does boil down to genetics and if they rubb it off.
