Hunters braids in western?

I'm going to a show tomorrow, and I wanted to anything possible to keep my horse cool as well as make him look good, which includes braiding his mane. I was going to do hunter braids, but I am also entering western classes that are placed between hunter classes. I will have absolutely no time to unbraid and rebraid his mane, but I was wondering if there is any other braid I could do instead that wouldn't look so bad with western? Or if anybody thinks it won't look as bad as I think it'll look?

At a lot of the local shows, the horses that are cross entered are banded in the western fashion for both english and western classes. It's a common turn out (albeit one I'm not a fan of) in the breed shows as well.

Mane Banding Technique for Shows

Thank you! I can't band it, it's too long, and I won't pull it, I don't like the look of pulled manes very much, atleast on him.

I'm a fan of the basketweave for keeping them cool. But you can always just braid it anyway, especially if your primary interest/talent/(what's the word I'm looking for?) is English. The judges will realize that you're not going to redo the mane between classes. The only caveat to this is if you do western showmanship.

braiding, hunter, western
