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.
