I suck at braiding, too, don't worry. Thankfully, my best friend hates showing but is my equivalent of a "horse show mom"- she can do EVERYTHING when it comes to showing, and in exchange for her being my show-day angel, all I have to do is feed her and let her jump my horse (her horse is green and has no clue what jumping is yet, lol!). So braids are taken care of for me, but back when I had to braid my own horse (gasp!), if there were loose, flyaway hairs that came out of (or weren't put into properly) the braids, I would just hairspray the mane until everything looked a lot neater :) heck, I still use a bit of hairspray to keep everythin in place!
Where there's a bay, there's a way!
