I braid down to ten, put the string in, continue to 15 and then tie it off. I leave some hair afterwards and trim it. I saw someone tie the hair she didn't braid to the braid? I need to learn how to do that.. I'll ask her the next time I see her.

And the braider has a bill that charges extra if the mane is too short, choppy, slick thick etc.

The two people I know that make very good money braiding at rated hunter shows do not have an extra fee for bad manes. They have relationships with the trainers and they simply ask the trainer to have these issues addressed and they are addressed. Period.

They would never cut a horses main. NEVER.

I'm sorry.. That's just what she does. And I'm not a professional, nor do I braid for other trainers.

Also, she does nightwatch at every show. Literally. Rated and QH shows. She braids basically every horse at the show, and even has people helping her. I don't think she charges extra unless it's to the absolute extreme.

Wink Wonderful Braids

I also braid and you are very good. Alot of people are very stuck up and if they will hire you you must do it there way. Though you are very good. I would say you could do 50$ a braid and still get people interested!

Thank you!! I really appreciate it! I braid for QH people who are normally easy going.. I've only been to a few hunter schooling shows and one A show. Some (not all by any means) do seem a little.. strange. A braided for a lady who trains with another trainer and she loved my braids! I guess it all depends on who the person is and what they're used to!

I can't do hunter plaits, my normal plaits just fall out after dressage anyway -_- if you lived in the uk I would pay you loads to plait my horse before an event :L x

IM curious - as they kinda look like double plaits for each one... as oppose to a single rolled plait like Im used to ... I noticed it watching an equitation thing from over the states too...

How are they rolled up - do you have a close up of the actual braid... is that what makes them hunter braids?



I must say you do a lovely lovely job and you would get plenty of work at the major show in NZ :)
