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.
Heck, I woulda' done the same thing!

I know! I was expecting him to be good too! I taught my horse to just fall asleep when he's being braided. I was the first one to braid him and my friends horse and they're both perfect!

Pssst, JustJump, you might not be getting too many responses since you already posted another thread just like this one, a month before.

Um.... yes.

Why not just continue with the other thread instead of starting a brand new with the same topic.

Your braids are nice looking.

If I was an owner I would blow a gasket if you cut my horses main though.

They do look very nice. I hope you have now found a way to do the ends without cutting them, as you described in your other thread, though. I would be livid if a braider took scissors to my horses' manes. And that would be very bad for business, as you know, since a LOT of the horse world is word of mouth...

I have actually! I watched John the braider videos and have talked to him and he's given some tips to me that I've been practicing!(:

Great! I wish you luck. About how long does it take you per horse? I haven't braided in years, as I've retired to nothing but the occasional schooling show with my lesson kiddos, but I remember it taking forever, especially when they were fidgety. And then someone inevitably would get an itch and scratch out a couple, and I'd have to redo.
