Wow that looks really great! I love his color. So pretty. I should try on Gizmo even though he has a super long mane. I got a feeling my hands are going to cramp up though. I can't braid my own hair without it happening. I'm defiantly going to have arthritis when I get older lol.

lol! I know the feeling! It can be tiring, but rewarding! I just love that look, and it really is handy on hot days!
Rocky's a great guy, he's a Rocky Mountain Horse and one of the lucky ones if you ask me, lol, I'm a huge fan of chocolate Rockies, just stunning

Custom Chrome Sport Horses

Good example of a higher show person using the running braid in dressage and jumping classes.

Well it'd be a crime to hack that thing off, drool!

I have a picture of an Arabian stallion who showed and won Sport Horse National in Grand Prix, and has also won national championships in Intermediare (sp?) 1, and Prix Saint-Georges, and he is shown with a running braid instead of the traditional white taped braids. I personally won't cut or pull my mares mane, but will put it up nicely for showing, a lot of different shows at all different levels do actually have a sub section for baroque bred and Arabian bred horses that traditionally have long manes, and what type of braiding is acceptable for those breeds, though you can obviously cut the mane and braid it up the traditional way if wanted. I actually need to become proficient in a running braid, even if its crappy at the barn at least, because it gets all tangled up in the reins when I'm riding. Her mane is about an inch lower then the bottom of her neck. And thick. I should probably stop putting MTG in it, because its gonna become unmanageable if I don't lol.
