Try some different things when it gets closer to show time. Use different strings and yarn, try hair spray and gels, My aunt sprayed her hair with Aqua Net back in the 60's and it hasn't moved yet.

We have a few open shows this month and the 4h show, I don't really care about how he looks for those shows but next month is the Spokane Sport Horse show, the entry's fee's aren't cheep so and it's a big show for this area so I'd like him to look his best, also we are planing on taking him to the Sport Pony Inspection in September so I want him looking his best for that, Onyx is a purebred but his last registered owner isn't willing to give up his paper's, but since he is eligible to be registered as a sport pony were going to do that rather than trying to fight with dumb people trying to get the papers...

No, I didn't actually - her mane grows mostly like a weed, and I treat her with Satin Sheen as often as I can - it's non silicone based and produces such a lovely silky mane, and repels dirt so you not only pull less out if they get mud in it (it slides right out), it stops THEM from pulling it out so easy as well!

The running braid looks sharp! I think the black yarn idea is genius, you'll figure it out!

MTG works wonders also feeding Farriers formula many of the ingredients in that supplement encourage healthy hair growth.

Definitely for long term I would use some kind of conditioner/mane grower...I personally don't like MTG, but if you don't mind it, go for that. Otherwise just find a good coat conditioner, and use that weekly. I also like the idea of something 'internal' as suggested above...skin and coat is only effected 'short term' by conditioners, and other external products, but if you can feed him something that is specific for hair and coat, you may get even better results.

I think the yarn idea is a fabulous idea; I think that could definitely work to keep his mane together in the braid...all you can do is try it and see!

So I tired a running braid today with a piece of sting braided in and it worked better but still came out when he put his head down, but I think if I wait to do the braid tell the last minute and don't let him put his down down before the class it should be okay.

Here is a picture I took today, did the braid really fast and with white sting so it's a little messy but not to bad.

Gotta find out the source of the problem first or any fixes wont work. However, I have had a lot of luck with Nu Stock regrowing hair quickly for skent places and such. It will at least increase the blood flow to the area and really good for the skin.

He's so cute. That braid looks pretty decent. I would suggest just doing that and putting a good amount of gel in it the keep the shorter hairs from sticking up and looking crazy. Good luck!

Try it with the black yarn. You'll have more "substance" to work with than just a single string. Use 2-3 pieces of unraveled yarn for more to work with. You could then flatten out a bit of the unraveled yarn and lay it on the spikey pieces of hair for better control. Or you can do little micro braids with the spikey hair and then braid it into the larger braid for better control of the shorter hairs as well.
