For this braid, it looks to me also like you either have to start at the whithers and work up as a tight french braid style or if you start at the poll, you need to work each movement "under" rather than "over" and tight.

I do this all the time! The second pic is a traditional french braid done very tightly. Some have given you EXCELLENT INSTRUCTIONS on this ! The first is an inverted french braid...in other words, you are braiding UNDER instead of OVER. All of these have to be tight to be polished. Your horse will get use to the pulling, but it does take practice! Good luck! It's GORGEOUS when you do it..my mare feels so pretty and she prances when it's completed..like she knows she looks pretty!!

Oo I like the top one. My new mare has a nice long mane so I might give it a try on her :)

Please show pictures of you doing it and the results?

**** that it is good! Both ways!

I've always had the idea that sitting on your horse would work...=P

I thought braiding and plating was the same thing, what's the difference between them?

I really like the second one...that is always what I am going for, but I always end up with more like the first one. I would love to be able to do the second. I wonder if it would help to do it from the horse's back to keep it on top (if you could get it started and get it far enough down to reach).

But doing the braid too tight will cause it to stretch out and get ugly when the horse stretches the neck?
