Hunter Braider needed

I need someone who will be in West Monroe, Louisiana for the 2013 Southern Regional 4-H Horse Championships. My thoroughbred mare needs her mane and tail braided(She has a fake tail, keep this in mind.) Need it done before our dressage time on Thursday. Thanks.

I can braid, just not well enough for this show. A poor braid job doesn't match my horses caliber. I need someone who is very good, not me. I wish I was that good haha! I also do not have time to practice!

Just a question...why are you doing hunter braids and braiding her tail for a dressage test?

Braiding the tail for dressage? That doesn't make sense... and last I heard fake tails were not allowed for dressage.

I would contact some barns around the Ike and ask if they know a braider.
You will need dressage braids though, not hunter, for the dressage class. Hunter for hint seat eq and hunter under saddle and for the jumping.

It is perfectly legal to have a fake tail in all 4-h competitions. Also, she's a hunter who I'm competing on in dressage so she will be braided, mane and tail. I've always braided for hunters and I don't have time to do it before hunters after dressage.

Nobody goes all out for dressage in 4-h. I've won southern regionals in dressage with a fake tail and hunter braided mane and tail. I won it with a 78.6. My horse looks very nice because she had a very thin tail.

I'm just telling you what our barn does. The girl who won last year rides with us...
Whatever your trainer or 4h leader tells you to do. Good luck.
