Brow Band, hair under or over???

This one always bugs me. I guess it's really personal choice, but do you like your horses forelock under the brow band or over it?

I prefer my mare's forelock over the browband, but then you can't see the silver on her browband. But when her forelock is tucked under the browband, it looks messy (her hair).

I'm speaking as a Western rider.

But I guess English folks have the same issue, unless they braid the forelock first.

I always have my horses forelocks over the browband xD I can't stand it underneath. I ride english btw.

I alway put the forelock over, whether I'm riding English or Western. I was always taught that it was more comfortable for the horses that way.
I do see what you mean about it covering a pretty browband though. I've never had a browband that I'd want to show off... yet! I only braid for dressage shows, so I guess then would be the only time you'd see the whole browband.

Over, easy. I think it just looks messy and, well it looks like you're lazy if it's underneath. Maybe that's just the way I see it though...
If your horses forelock is thick, you could always thin it out and you might be able to see more of the perttty brow band.

I've always been told to put the forelock over the browband. Apparently its more comfortable and I can understand that. I don't really have too many pretty browbands cause I'm mainly a western rider now, but if I want to show off a browband when I'm just mucking around I'll braid the forelock.

Over! I've never seen/heard of anyone having it under, unless they just forgot to flick it out!

Over 100% time whether I ride English or Western. And it looks much better too (my qh has really nice long one).

I also always have mine over. Many of mine have such thick forelocks that it pulls the bridle forward into the back of their ears so under is really not an option. The forelock on my Perch is so thick that I CANNOT get the bridle all the way on unless I flick it over. LOL. And I am with KV, mine are really long too so I like the look of them flowing free .

I always put it over. I havent ever had to show off a browband. I have a 1 ear headstall that I need to fit to my horse... and then I wouldnt have to wonder. =)

If Denny had a forelock, it'd be over.
