Button braid ?

Would I look silly if I put them on Aidan for English Pleasure, Eq and 1 OF class? My friend does the ones where you braid, flip them under and band...I just don't think it looks sharp enough LOL. Are button braids only OK in dressage?

I think that if you can do them nicely without them looking like golf balls on their neck they look fine for any event. I used to do them for most shows I went to. Gymkhanas sometimes have a presentation class and I did it for that and got decent results. I can't braid very well though so never got anything special.

Personally, I would do yarn hunter braids. They will stay in better all day and look better with the "hunter" type turnout. You don't have to do 40-60 though lol. I find that I can usually get away with about 20-25 with a very well pulled mane.

Practice makes perfect!
You can fly me down to braid for you :P

(My computer is hating on YouTube right now..)
These are what I would put in for a hunter turnout class:

And for a jumper or dressage turnout class:
