I can understand the lack of long braids hanging down with the cute ribbons...in all defense I don't like the looks of that either even in the smaller kids but....:)
As an adult, braided neatly and tucked up (or under), french braided, whatever neatly contained in a hairnet should present that tidy appearance even in an equitation class. I use the military standard for women; the bottom of the bun/braid can't touch the top of the shirt collar and must be pinned up...ie, no free flowing short ponytails.
