I show at local Dressage shows about every other weekend. My horse usually has a super thick, long mane and typically in the summer, I have to braid it because my horse gets really hot and sweaty when its 100 degrees and he has a blanket of mane on his neck. I usually braid about 7-9 braids down his neck and rebraid all the time (about every 3-7 days). The problem that is occuring this summer is that his mane is starting to break off and is rapidly getting shorter.
My trainer told me that the people who own the fresians that are showing all the time in my area, do a typical french (or running) braid and then vetwrap it. I would consider doing that, but have no idea how that could be done.
Does anyone know how to do that or have any other ideas or tips on how to save his mane?
Thanks in advance
