Perfect Plaits/Braids.

Just wondering if anyone had any rosette or tail braiding tips. I have a presentation class in two weeks, where I have to plait up and any extra tips would be excellent. Also, tips on how to prepare in the two weeks before would be excellent.

1 thing - don't leave the mane dirty to braid! People might say it's easier to braid a dirty mane, but it looks nasty! Get some QuickBraid, Mousse, or even water! It will help keep a grip on the hairs while you braid.

Best advice you can get is practice, practice, practice.

There is a huge difference between not clean and so filthy it looks bad.

A freshly shampooed mane is much more difficult to braid. That does not mean you leave your horse with dirt and dry skin flakes and use braiding as the excuse.

Another way to go if you don't want to make the mane completely clean first is to use Best Shot's Ultra Vitalizing Mist spray. It's not sticky, but spray it on the mane before braiding and it helps with static electricity and flyaways.
