Manes & tails for english

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,

First of all, what are you showing in? I'm think Hunt seat, than you should do hunter braids. A great book for both English and Western braiding is called Braiding Manes and Tails

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! :)

Showing
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.

I like the way running braids look, like the one on Arabella in my avatar. This one is sloppier...

That one's the front of her running braid and the little bobble thing on her forlock.

And there's a pic as well, sorry we're kinda far away, I didn't have many good pics.
