Tips on Braiding....???

Does anyone have any tips on braiding? I know how to braid regular, but not how to roll it up on the neck. Does anyone have any tips?

I think you have to use a need and thread.. Ask a hunter/jumper or google 'jumping braids' or something like that ;)

To make the plaits neat, plait up so it's tight. Use a nice strong thread also. And use hairspray

What do you want to know? What are you braiding for? I can do professional braids of any style, so where are you having trouble and I can tell you how to braid YOUR horse perfectly, or how I would atleast! ;)

You don't need a needle and thread for hunter braids. Just yarn. :)

There's really good step by step instructions here. (When you braid DO NOT use blue yarn like in the pictures! I think they just used it to make it easier to see. Match it exactly to the horses mane).
