Question Wow. Amazing mane braid. How do I do it?

I am absolutely in love with the white horse's mane! But anyways, how can I do it? Whenever I braid my horse's mane, it looks like this:

Is there some sort of special technique to do the second braid, or do you just need to do it really, really tight?

This will be kind of hard to explain...

When your braiding, the bit that you have just added to, I let it lay down their neck and hold the other two in one hand, and pull the one you just added to through so it's super tight, then move on to the next one. After a bit of practise I can get braids like that top one...That probably didn't make sense, it's something I normally show people!

Also try standing on a bucket and braid from over the top of there neck, it makes for a tighter braid.

Let me knwo fi you didn't understand :]

Oh I forgot... It also depends on which side you take the hair through, I can't think which side you need to make it lok like the top without a horse in front of me... lol... but I think it's the bottom.

I didn't do either one of them... But to do the second one, it's sort of a cross between a regular braid and a french braid. You add pieces in like a french braid, but you only add it to the piece that's on top.

Really really tight - sometimes it helps if you braid from the offside

Thats amazing!! *makes note to try it* lol
I have done the second one on my horse, but I don't do it all the time because no matter how tight I do it, the braid always comes out somewhere then it looks really terrible lol
