How long does the mane have to be for this braid? Crow'as mane's growing out and it's about 4-5 inches now..>_>
Normal braiding into ''knots'' just isn't my style x)


Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

i think your horses mane is long enough zab, my horses mane is really short and thin and i can do the running braid in his

I don't think it should be very long, but i'm pretty positive you might run into trouble with hairs sprouting out with a 4-5" long mane. Ideally, 10-15" i'd say is a good length for braiding.. especially the running braid.

It almost looks like you start the whole ribbon incorporation from the rosette in a few of the pictures? Like you're tying the whole length of ribbon to the bridle and then just use the ribbon as "hair" while doing a tight Running Braid, and cut off the excess ribbon at the end. It looks simple, but I'm sure it takes loads of practice to make it look that good. But then, I can't even do my own hair... Bleh.

^y'know what? I think I'm gonna try that. Yes, I agree, it does look simple but it's far from that as I have tried to do it many times. I normally don't have problems with braids as I got used to braiding my own hair since I was little, but a horse's mane is so different from human hair.

Also, with regards to the front 'crown' piece that is attached to the bridle, I know for a fact that it's a separate piece because on that same DVD I saw the groom taking it off & hanging it with the bridle. Having said that, I also know that the 3 ribbons were attached (but not tied) to the bridle underneath that crown. Ugh, I wish I could show you guys screen-shots from the DVD ;(

I'll see if I can create screenshots & upload them here x

I've uploaded it on youtube. I couldn't take screen shots so I recorded the video on my cellphone.

You can do this braid in short manes, it will just not hold very long. The longer the mane the longer it will stay...

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
