OK, thanks. That one looks quite young to have stood still for long enough to do it up like that. :)

I know right? I think it's one of those things that takes 2+ hours to get right...until you know how to do it and then it takes 20 mins and looks perfect lol.

I can't speak for western pleasure, but a running braid would probably be appropriate for the English stuff.

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

If it's just a schooling show I wouldn't worry too much. I agree with the running braid. You could leave it loose for western pleasure probably.

We banded manes from Western, French running braid for the mane, braided tails too, for English.

The mane roll don't take long at all (five minutes?), once you know how to do it and have two people, one to weave, one to pull tight. Only did the mane roll for draft halter classes and in harness not under saddle because it pulls a lot. We had up to eight haflingers going to different classes so you got quick with changing braids for the classes.

Thanks guys, also I was wondering that since I'm not showing at any serious levels, all I have is my western barrel saddle. It's only two years old so looks brand new and has some silver on it. It is a medium oil. Would I get away with using that and a nice blingy headstall? Also, since his hooves are dark should I use black hoof polish? I know my trainer uses clear on her haffies grey hooves.
