I know it is an old thread, but I just want to ask what diciplines it isn't appropriate for?

Here in NZ you can plait for any and all english disciplines, show jumping, dressage, showing, etc its just a matter of preference.

I am not versed in the turnout for western events, but here as far as I have seen we have rodeo events, none of the showmanship or halter, we have inhand shows, but these are generally english based, and if its western the horses are shown rather naturally, natural well groomed tail and mane etc.

I think it's mostly for english disciplines.

Western they leave there tails down naturally and sometimes had extensions.

God only knows what was done to that horses tail! Pride has had his tail pulled every show season for the last 20 years. I don't pull over winter because I don't show over winter and he always has a big thick, perfectly normal tail each spring (which then takes me 3 weeks to pull properly).

Reeco had a pulled tail 3 months ago, then he went into training and now you can't tell it has been done and I am going to have to start again!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
