No, it's different. That looks like a regular french braid, but with ribbon added in at the base and covering the mane.

With draft horses, the mane isn't braided, it's 'rolled.' Here's what it looks like:

To do that, you take a long piece of material and lay it at the top of the neck so that half is on one side and half is on the other. Then cross one piece from in front of the material and one piece from behind the material over it to make an X over top of the material. Then cross the material from the right side of the neck to the left side and from the left side to the right side.

Then you take a piece of hair from behind the material (closer to the horse's butt) and cross it over, then cross the material over again. Repeat that until you run out of mane or material.

This thread has a great diagram to explain what I mean:

Edit: I also used to do something similar to my horse's tail with a tail bag, like this:

I would tie it around the top of her tail, then french braid it with her tail. If I can find the bag again, I'll do it and take pictures, then post them here.

Green Broke
It looks like someone has done a running braid while keeping the cloth on top -- i'm sure it's more complicated than that, but that's what I'm seeing!

Beautiful pictures!
