Very very nice, I always braid with yarn too.

In schooling shows it is not forced to braid right? I always see people doing schooling shows and not braiding .. not to mention my friend is a jumper and she NEVER braids .. Do you not have to braid if your jumping?
I will post a picture of her, this is not me nor my horse. (but I sure do love riding her horse)

Jemulchia - You don't have to braid for schooling shows, although you can if you want, and it never hurts because you're showing respect for the judge. At recognized shows you should always braid for hunters and dressage. Some jumpers choose to braid, others don't - personal preference.

I ALWAYS braid for Dressage. I don't braid for Stadium Jumping. I get over 20 everytime I braid Geof.

Most schooling shows aren't formal enough to need braiding, though some people like to. In the Hunters at rated shows almost all horses will be braided. I only see Jumpers braided if they're also doing a few hunter classes or possibly if they're in a Jumper Classic, or at some of the bigger shows. At the Syracuse Invational all the jumpers were braided, and most of them were the "button braids" that some of you have mentioned on here. I THINK it's because most of htem are international jumpers. The hunter/eq horses had the traditional hunter braids.
