Had some more attempts this afternoon.
First this how Apache's mane is supposed to look.

But his mane is just too short and not thick enough for the best effect.

Sammy was being a pest while I was doing Apache, so I figured he was volunteering . Of course he had ants in his pants the whole time, so the pictures aren't the best but here he is.

This video is pretty decent, that shows off the basics. You have to braid the braids really, really hard in order to make it work.

I make the sections of mane a lot wider though, in order to get the "fluffyness" of the braids. After I have made the braids - like in the video - I pull the mane on either side of the braid to get the "fluff".

Subbing! I love that german braid, its like a button braid but more to the side! The toughest I've ever tried was a running braid on a thick maned haflinger, and a tail braid on a QH. (I'm a guy, so braiding isn't that natural to me... at all!)

My brother has twin 6 year old girls and he says the same thing.
He is getting better everyday though.

You did great, for anyone much more a "guy".

Do any of you have suggestions for a braid to do on my mini mare for our parade? She's going to be rocking pink so I wanted to put ribbons in her braids somehow. The only catch is that I will only have 20-30 minutes to do the braids, so they can't be too hard >.> I'm great at the running braid though so any variation of that should be quick. I can do a running braind in 5 minutes. Her mane runs down to her shoulder. She'll be harnessed up so her forelock will be french braided and rolled, and I'm thinking a fishtail braid for her tail?

You could do a running braid and plait in a pink ribbon in the braid. Or you could be diamond braids and puts bows on some of them though that will probably take more then 30 mins.

You could do several running braids so it has a layered affect.

What is was meant to look like
Like this but with ribbon in the braid. If they have a light coloured mane you could but in temporary pink hair dye.

Thanks! Looks easy enough. Do you think it will work with longer manes? I'm looking for ways to put up my filly's mane as an alternative to pulling and banding.
