I show western so most of the time so her mane is banded & she has a fake tail in.
But for days when I just show English, I never know what to do,
Everyone does different things,
Whats you guys' thoughts on it? (: Posted via Mobile Device
You should make a french braid in your horse's tail for english and keep the fake tail in to give it a fuller look. As for the mane, I'm not really sure what they're called, but they're rolled up braids that kind of look like miniature buns. Maybe google it! :)
I always French braid the tail for English like this. Then for small/fun shows I band the mane the night before so it stays flat and then leave the mane down during the show (I keep my English horses' manes at 4 inches or so for shows). When I do some bigger shows I'll end up doing hunter braids, though. It makes the horse look a lot more professional. If you have a mane you don't want to cut, a running braid is always gorgeous but I still can't make it short all the way down the neckline; mine end up going downwards. It takes practice but it looks really neat.
