Do You Have To Braid For Dressage?

Do you have to braid your horse for training level dressage? If not, is it still better to braid? I was just wondering so that I can plan my day before the show accordingly.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

I never did for schooling shows. For recognized shows, yes.

I always braid for dressage. Even if its a dumpy show. It shows how much you care, and shows how nice your horse is. It's also something different and the judge will appreciate it:) hope this helps

I used to braid for schooling shows, but my horse has a very long neck, so now I reserve braiding for recognized shows. It does not affect scoring. I do agree it shows a certain level of respect for your horse and the sport as a whole.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.
