band it long, people will assume your horse is a reiner.

Try a diamond braid. Looks very nice, IMO! :)

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.

No. Nobody braids a western pleasure mane. (unless the horse is an all-arounder) They do band them though. I would not do the diamond plate unless you are doing both english and western in the same show.

The diamond plate is not a braid, it's when you band the mane all the way down and then you take the existing bands and split them so you band the two splits together and you do it the length of the mane so it makes these diamond shapes. It's pretty.

Wow, had to read it twice but I understood what you meant. That would be pretty. Man I may think about starting Sienna NEXT year instead, LOL. I've got a lot of work to do that I never thought about. Getting her used to bathing, getting these old fumble fingers to learn to do more than just comb her mane, baby powder on her white sock, LOL oiling her hooves since she has a white one and that would look a little silly with black shoe polish, especially since I would probably get it all over her white sock. I was just planning on working on her reining and side passing, LOL.

If you want a stable friendship, get a horse.

Oh WOW that is gorgeous!!!!! Thank you lildonkey. I could visualize it in my head but seeing it, especially on that horse really made it pop. Sienna would look wonderful in that with her coloring (the red bay showing through the black mane) like the black and white makes that stand out. You have a beautiful horse. Thanks so much, Cheryl
