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 :)
Hunter braids are pulled up, and then tied a different way than the dressage or button braids (which is what I think your talking about). For hunter braids, people want more braids in the mane to give the illusion that the neck is longer. Certain braiders can also create the illusion that horses have the same neckline (YouTube search johnthebraider he's AMAZING!!)

And thank you very very much!!
