I can't even braid my daughters' hair. Thank goodness Hank's mane is kept short. I'd be a wreck...

I tried it tonight starting at the poll and pulling it as tight as I could, but it kept turning out like the first picture.

So I tried starting at the withers and working my way up, and it worked! It wasn't the prettiest thing ever, but it stayed right along her neck! I was going to take a picture of it but the guy who was driving the horse I did it to took it out before I got a chance to.

But I'll be sure to do it to my horse and post pictures.

Thanks everyone!

Never heard of starting at the withers.

I figured that the only differense was that instead of taking the first strand of hair over the second when I started, I put it under it.. it took about 5 minutes for my fingers to realize that this was still the same as braiding, just the other way XD Then it took 5 minutes to make the braid ;) And I ddn't pull much at all or tighten it.
(there's a pic earlier in the thread)

I had never heard of it either, but I saw somebody say something about it in this thread, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try.

I still don't know how it works.
