| || | Here in NSW, I often see horses plaited up with hunt sized rosettes - big ones, being an uneven number with the forelock making it even.
For instance, I do about 20 rosettes + forelock= 21 for eventing/dressage/pony club.
For just Showjumping and hunting, I do either 11, 13 or 15, depending on which horse I'm riding. For my 13hh pony, I do 11 + forelock, on my 15hh Galloway, I do 13 + forelock and on my 17hh horse, I do 15 + forelock.
I wouldn't plait his tail, because I find there is no use, because mine always come out when I jump
And don't roll them - fold them in half, and half again. They still look neat, but will be quicker to take out at the end of the day, when your both tired and want to get home
Good luck Hope you place
