Here is a good website I have found that show you how to do this. They just do not have the ribbon added in. It is called a running braid/french braid and it is used primarily in long maned horses that are used for hunt seat and dressage and jumping.

@minihorse927, thanks a bunch... the good news is, I know how to do that running braid, the bad news is that I have noooo clue how to incorporate ribbons into it so that it would look like the one in the photos ;(

Give me a little time and I will see if I can find how to add the ribbons. BRB.

Well no website I have found is very specific. This is what I can gather. Take a ribbon that is fairly think and it will be devided into three seperate pieces. Work these pieces into the horses mane just as if they were part of the hair. Try to keep the ribbon the top section or it will disappear underneath for a pass or two. I am going to try this on one of my minis on my next day off work, which is wednesday. If it works out, I will post pictures and tell you exactly how I did it, but I am pretty sure it would work out ok this way.

I just looked at the pics you posted again, it might only be two ribbons kept to the outside of the braids...
Again, on wednesday I am going to try it on one of my minis as I have always loved manes like this but never really tried or knew how to do one until here recently and I have just not had the time to try to do it to mine. I will try and post the results here.

There's a DVD of Cadre Noir's gala in Florence, & in that DVD they showed the preparation stage, when they showed the horses and the "mane styling" I noticed there were 3 ribbons, ....of course, the more important part (how it's done) they didn't show lol

Will be looking forward to your findings <3
Many thanks

Wooo-Hooo.. I guessed it!

Very neat link! I have saved it! I can't believe I guessed what kind of braid it is! LOL!

I can do something very similar with human hair (all along the top of the head to letting it hang down)

I will ask and see if I can try it on a horse this Friday
to see if the same thing works on them.

I think its like a french plait with ribbon, you could search instructions for shire plaiting they look quite similar

I would imagine its just like doing a normal braid but you would use the ribbon as two of the braidy bits lol does that make sense to you guys? Im not the greatest at explaining things.
