Running braid on a short mane?

The mane is about 4 inches long I think. Can a running braid be done? At least along the ridge of his neck? I've never done any braiding on a horse before and am reli eager to try my hand at it..

Well, what are you going to be using the braid for (such as showing or just for fun)? And if it's for showing, what breed is your horse?

ETA: Looks like it's just for fun, four inches is a little short but I don't see why you couldn't try it.

I've tried to do a running braid on my horse when his mane has been about 4 or 5 inches in length. Sadly, it didn't work and it all just fell out. It works wonderfully with my horse who has a mane that is about 10 inches to a foot. You could always try, though, you never know. Plus running braids don't take too long to do.
