I heard it was acceptable for your mane to be braided in a western class also

Maybe if they were left hanging but not if you tie them up. It's certainly not the norm and I'm sure you'd get some strange looks but it's your choice.

Banding takes a lot less time though.

I come from the english world, and let me tell you, I dearly wish all we have to do is band, not braid.... would have saved so many hours in the barn the night before shows, freezing your you-know-what off (in the winter, anyways!!)

For me, banding vs braiding for AQHA shows depends on the horse. I do all-around with both english and western events. For my typie English horse, I do the normal English braids for both English and western and have seen multiple other people do it. For the western type horse I band and shorten for both english and western. I've never been penalized either way (and no weird looks, I promise )
