Scalloped Braids

I'm planning on doing scalloped braids this show season. I've been looking all over for info on them but I can't find anything. I know how to do them. My question is, what do you do with the last two braids at the end of the mane? Do I just put those into hunter braids? I assume the forelock will just be a french braid and then tucked up. Or should I leave it natural?

When I did a scalloped braid I just looped the last 2 braids back into the "scallops" before them... I don't know if that's what you're "supposed" to do but it still looked cool. =) I would assume the same thing about the forelock... I'm no braiding/showing expert though. I just braid for fun. =)

If I'm mathing correctly you should just have one braid left at the end by the withers.. I would braid it and then fold it up different ways to see what looks best. And yes, for the forelock just french braid it down and grab a rug hook!

Well if you're attaching the first braid to the third and the second to the fourth, then there would be two braids left at the end. If you're attaching the first to the second and the second to the third, then you'd have one braid left. Most of the info I've found (which is not very much) says it's supposed to be the first to the third and so on.

I actually just ordered a braiding book from amazon, Braiding Manes and Tails. I'm hoping it'll clear everything up.

I swear I'm good at math. I got a B+ in Calc 3!!
Yes braiding books are always good! I agree with the poster who said she just doubled them over, it seems like that would be the best way to do it.

I think they're eye catching when done properly. However, just like hunter braids, they're hideous when done incorrectly.
