I've always used yarn to braid and they've turned out fine... but my horse does not like standing for the amount of time required to braid with yarn and the materials get everywhere and I'm always afraid of dropping a piece and her eating it!
So my new trainer suggested trying elastic bands instead of yarn. The first time I did it was fine... but now I can't seem to get the hang of it I have a show this weekend and I have all the materials. I just can't get it right!
I think my problem is being able to braid tightly and all the way to the end. Then, when I roll it up, it never stays properly and I don't know how to make it stay!
Any suggestions would be helpful!!
