What to do with a long mane? *Pictures*

I work as a carriage driver and we always braid the manes and put flowers and other stuff in it to make it attractive to the public. For the past 2 years I have been doing about the same thing and I have have gotten bored with it and I have been trying to do other things but I wanted to ask everyone what you would do?

Here are some pictures of one of our horse's with a really long mane and one picture of another horse I drive.

This is Willow and she was covered in glitter for a reservation that someone just wanted a horse with their logo on her.


Here's a close up of her mane.


Here's a picture of things I have done with here mane and one of her tail.






And here is one of Tiege's mane.

The drafts I braided I did the mane roll braid with the stable colors, but make sure you have stretchy fabric and help or it's difficult to get tight. Or the french braid that sits on top of the neck than the darts wrapped in that, makes it easy to stick decorations in both really.

I could probably do that on a horse that doesn't have much of a mane but my boss wants to show off as much mane as possible because most non horsey people are more impressed with really long manes than your typical draft braid.

Don't have any suggestions, but those horses are so pretty. I love the manes in the pictures. :)

I've considered doing that, I would just have to make sure that it doesn't take too long to do because we only have a short time to get the horses ready to go out. But I think it would look pretty cool and I could add some flowers to the top.

I have done similar 'braiding' as shown in the link from the post above, but I would braid the strands, then cross and band them, this way I did not need to band at the crest.

Those are amazing braids! Your horses are beautiful too! Is Willow a Gypsy Vanner?

Wow!

Firstly, directions PLEASE on how you did the weave with the blue and gold ribbons. That is NEAT. Is that a rope weave? It looks like something I've seen in rope halters. In which case, what is that called? I can look it up.

What about scallop braids?


You look creative enough that you could modify the base design.
