Talking Your attempts at fancy braids.

So today I decided to have a play about with my stallion and I have recently seen a braid I wanted to try so I decided why not? I have to say it took me hours and it has worked out very well, Ricky was as gold as gold of course and fell asleep.

What is was meant to look like
Pattilou, Clava, shaggy and 12 others like this.

If that was your first try I say you did a pretty good job!

Thank you, it was my first try at that braid I have done plain runhning braids though they don't work out very well because my shetlands manes are too thick.

Fanciest I tried a running braid on my horse and my BO's pony.

Phantom is the grey horse. His mane is thinnish but very course.

The pony is Charlie. He has like a double or triple layer mane haha. His mane seemed to look a bit tidier than Phantom's when I was done. I don't know if it was because his mane is thicker and longer or if it was the second time I did it so it was better than my first

I've done more attempts since these and have gotten progressively better I just gotta figure out how to keep it tighter against their neck, it always gets looser as I go one haha.

Here are my first ever attempts at a running braid.

Oh my gosh! I love that version of the running braid. I will have to try that on my mare. :)

This was my first running braid. I like to do them "shorter and tighter" than the traditional style. I'm not a fan of pulling and banding so this is how I show my filly...of course they look a lot cleaner now that I've been practicing!

Love the braids. I think your attempt with your boy looks great especially dealing with that thick mane. I have a black mare, 40 inches tall, not registered, and she has the super thick mane and the forelock is wild. The lady we got her from told me she I think roached her mane like down the middle to be able to band it. I've never done any braiding myself so I geuss I'd better start practicing:) please let me know if you have any tips for those thick manes. I named her Voodoo Star because that mane made her look like a witchy woman. :)

I find horse hair much easier to braid than human hair, due to it's coarseness.

That looks so cool! It looks much better that my first try doing a running braid. :)
