Running/French Braid

I have been trying to grow my mares mane out and then I decided to do a couple of shows...her mane is long enough to do a running braid but I have noticed that they aren't really popular ...is it worth it to cut it? (next year I will be showing alot if all goes well) what is your oppinion?

Well if you cut it before I am guessing she is a stock horse. Well if you are going to be showing a lot you might as well cut and band it. That is what is in for stock horses now.

Put your ass on some class...ride a THOROUGHBRED

What breed is he? I think running braids are acceptable for Arabs, Fresians, etc. But for stock horses you want it pulled and banded.

I always vote for keeping long hair. I have 2 mustangs and a percheron and would never dream of cutting their manes off. Regardless of whether it is popular or not, I would do the running french braid.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I agree - Andalusians look incredible with long running braids. Just long manes in general.

I vote keep it.
