Well im going to a show jumping comp on the 6 & 7th of June & have been thinking of what braid to do on my lil brumby pony. He's got a really think mane, so im not really sure of what I should do. I was thinking a running braid just along he's neck would look nice but it's just so thick it would probabley all come out really soon after I put it in. Here is some pictures of his mane what do you think I should do with it??
His bridal path is cliped you can't really tell in the pictures as it was windy & he mane was all over the place. Its show jumping. Umm next time I go out to the farm i'll try& get some more better pics of his mane, he's another pic that might be better even though its far away.DSC_0064-annotated.jpg
No, horse's don't have many nerves in their mane folocules, you take a pulling comb, take a SMALL peice of the mane, use the comb to tease up some of the shorter hairs and when you have about 5-8 hairs, wrap them around the comb and pull HARD, don't just tug tug tug, it will irretate them. It is better to pull a mane when you have just finished riding because the pores are open. And just go to Youtube, search StormValleyStables, and go to my page, it is the My Wideos box
If you do more braids it helps make the neck look longer! Little trick I learned from my obbsesive reading! And I don't think it will make a HUGE deferance if he has a winter coat. Why don't you try it when you can?
