I am gonna try that today on my boy today because lately it has either been a thousand degrees out and not so smart to ride in or raining UGHHH. thanks summer weather!! haha

but one question how do you get them to loop like that, which is the whole point of this braiding technique i am assuming.

Your horse is an extension of you.

OK, I have always rode english, but have always had arabs and saddlebreds. Its a ok to not braid and my horses always have nice manes.
Now, I plan to show open hunt classes and refuse to trim let alone pull. Im clueless about braiding, other than pasture braids and putting tails up.
Anyone care to direct me to instructions on how to do this particular one? Please.

SaddleDragon-Braid the mane into a bunch of single braids (as many as you want) with string attached, then tuck them under another braid (I usually do the third to the left) and attach using a latch hook.

Neat! I've putzed with braids like that too on my horses sometimes. Yours look much better though! ;)

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

What is a latch hook, and do you braid the string into the mane?
