I find this interesting. When I've done shows people have told me that your hair is supposed to cover the tops of your ears. I know there are different "hair rules" for different disciplines but it seems that everyone has posted thus far don't have to do that. Can anyone tell me if covering the tops of your ears is what you're supposed to do for a certain thing? I would love to try braiding my hair to fit it in my helmet but then it wouldn't cover my ears so I never thought it was an option.

Thanks for the french braiding suggestion.
And I'm not sure about covering the ears. Any show veterans around who know the answer?

I have long hair like yours, almost comes to my lower back at the longest strands. I put it in a messy bun bob like thing at the base of my neck and then put the hair net around it. Hair net make you look very professional. I've never covered the tops of my ears.

Can not answer your question with out knowing what discipline you are going to be showing.

If you are doing breed shows or open shows you can wear a show bow. If you are doing hunter shows a show bow is not OK, that is why I ask.


Amba, you are talking about hunter hair. It is how your hair is supposed to look in the hunter ring.

I had longer hair than yours, and what I would do is put all my hair in a hair net. Then tie a hair thing around my hair and hair net, in a low pony tail. Then flip my hair up under my helmet.

Also when I schooled at home, I didnt use a hair net. I would just put my hair in low pony tail, flip is up, then fold it again and then put my hair under my helmet.

I'm hoping to eventually do jumper, but for now low level hunter, and failing those- flat classes, judged on rider most likely.

I do hunter hair, and I have thick hair, not long though. But try this?

First, brush your hair out so there's no tangles.
2. Make a small ponytail at the top like this: (only don't do it like that.. I only used this picture to show the seperation haha!)

Then, take the hair that is not in the ponytail, and pull it over your ears into a tight ponytail at the bottom of your head (at this point, all of your hair should be in the 2 ponytails, I hope I'm not too confusing!!)

Then what I do, is braid the remainder of the hair and then secure the end of the braid with another hair tie (you should be using 3 hair ties) And since your hair is not thick, this shouldn't be a problem

Then, stick it up on top of your head, and secure it with a hairnet on top. Apply bobby pins wherever needed, and remember, hairspray is your friend!!

I really hope this isnt confusing.. I might post a thread on how I do it, and take pictures in the process haha!

My friend also has long hair, but doesn't put her hair over her ears. But, she does put it in one ponytail at the bottom, braids it, and flips it under her helmet. Her hair is both long and thick!

Good luck(:

I would be interested if you did a thread on this with step-by-step pictures. I think I understand how you are saying to do it but I'm not quite sure. I really have a problem getting my hair to stay over my ears. It's long and thick and curly. I just spent an hour straightening it. I'm wondering if it will be easier or harder to get under my helmet when it's straight.

Hmm... I think I will! I'll do it tomorrow! And my hair has a bunch of short layers, so this is my little way of doing the hair over the ears thing(:

My friend who does the hunter hair, parts her hair directly down the middle, pulls it over her ears in a low ponytail, flips it up under her helmet and spreads out her hair. And her hair, is CURLY. Here's a picture:

Her hair is naturally like that all the time! It's insane!

And I might just do it now. Beware, my hair has been up in a bun all day long and its kind of crazy! Haha!
