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.
