Red face Hunter Braids Critique

I have only been braiding manes for about.. A year and a half or two years probably? I'm not 100% sure, but I have only been braiding at open shows and some AQHA shows. I charge $25 at the open shows, just because most of them are little kids with parents with tight budgets. I charge either $30 or $35 at AQHA shows depending on how many I'm doing. What do you think of these braids? I'm still practicing the whole mane preparation, tail braiding etc.

Let me know what you think!

They look very well done to me. Pic #5 looks a little off to me, as if the braids aren't placed high enough, or tight enough to the neck? That's being picky though..

His neck is shaped that way, I make sure that they're tight! I'm a total neat freak and perfectionist. Thanks though

Boy are you lucky haha! A professional trainer/braider taught me how to braid. She told me to do about 5 or 6 braids every time I went out to ride, and it worked! I'm still in the process of getting consistent and faster when I braid, so it's still a work in progress(:

Thanks!!

haha you'd have to be able to pay for my plane ticket! And for uncooporative horses, I charge like 40$(: The last bad horse I braided (which was weird because he was 12 years old and has a million show miles... go figure) was literally moving the whole time, bobbing his head the whole time, and occasionally reared up. My trainer was literally holding onto his head trying to keep him still. After my trainer left, The horse literally reared up, braced against his leather halter, broke it, and ran to the other barn.. I called the owner and told her what happened and said I couldn't do it considering he knocked me off the step stool and a flew back against the stall door, and had a total migraine after. I felt bad, but I'm sorry, if your horse has been braided as much as that horse had, it should have better manners than that.
