Talking Mane Braiding.

Heres a picture of my horse. Thoroughbred. I do hunt seat and dressage. I don't really like the french braid, so I was wondering, how would you braid his mane?





I know his mane is on the other side of his neck, but I tried to get a headset.

I would pull and or cut him mane so it is about 4 inches long & do hunter braids or button braids. I personally prefer hunter braids, heres how you do them.

I ditto the plaiting; his mane already appears fairly thin, so you probably won't have much pulling to do. You may have to trim it some, atleast even it up; you can still plait it without having to cut it too short.
