Awee, thank you! Its just a running braid, and its really simple. Just start from their poll, or wherever their mane starts, and take about half inch thick sections and just start a regular braid and just braid normally for a few passes, then grab a chunk of mane hanging down about the size of one of the strands in the braid, and add it to the left most strand. Continue down the neck, adding a piece of hair to the left most strand every pass. When you get to the withers, and run out of hair, just continue regular braiding until you get to the end, then tie it off ;) Their are tons of tutorials, and its actually one of the easiest braids for me to do (and I suck at braiding )

E v e r y horse is good for something. You dont throw a whole life away just cause he's banged up a little...

My running braids always taper off to a triangle shape.. yours is perfectly following your horse's neck.. any secret to doing that?

You just have to keep it really tight. :) I find that it's easier if the mane is not at all slick. It's even "easier" if the horse in question has sort of a thick mane. It can happen on a thinner maned horse but it's trickier!

Also, it's easier to keep it tight if you're braiding from above - standing on a stool or something, so you aren't reaching up AND trying to braid.
