What breed is your horse? I would do what is typical for her breed when showing in that style. You should be safe then.

For English, a running braid should be perfectly fine in any hunter/dressage type class. Western, horses aren't braided. They do band the manes for stock types, but for a local show, I'm not sure if I would unless you find everyone else is also.

As far as the ribbon browbands, I've never actually seen one at a show. They don't seem to be a "thing" here in the US except in a few select circuits.

Plaited, pulled or shaved.

Standardbreds in led classes may have:
A) manes and tails presented as for ridden classes OR
B) bridle path plait a small section of mane at the top of the
Neck is plaited. A discreet colour-coordinated ribbon may be
Incorporated into the plait. Tail is left unplaited. (Led
Standardbred ONLY) OR
C) both mane and tail unplaited. (Led Standardbred ONLY).

Bridle should be the same colour as the saddle, supple, of good
Quality leather. Stitching on noseband and brow band optional.
Coloured brow bands may be worn. It is preferred that a snaffle bit is
Used (jointed or straight bar)."
That's what I found.

Try looking at this link. It's for a standie specific show organization in Ontario. They have photo galleries from the past few years. It looks like they all have the smaller button braids. I didn't see any running braids. It looked like they pretty much all had pulled manes also. Hope this helps!
