Question A braiding how-to video

I was just looking at my old braiding thread and had a lot of people request a braiding video. I just recently got a really decent camera, so I was thinking about putting a how-to together?

If I was to make one, would you watch? I'm not a professional, and I don't believe I am even in the same ball park as the pro's, but I do know how to make braids look nice and neat for any show.

What do you think?

I'll attach pictures of my braids so you can check them out.

Subscribing! Here's a video of my second try at the hunter braids. I do okay up to this point, but they tend to look messy when I go to tie them off.

You have your braiding down great! But to me, they look too long to be strong braids, that could be your problem.

Try counting your crossovers so each braid is the same length! :)

Holy cow! I wish I could braid like that, My horse's mane's are ether to long or to short to braid like that. Delilah and Charm's manes are long enough that if I do that it doesn't look good and Mary Anne, well..... I am not sure her mane would even make a single cross-over. She has about a 2in. long mohawk mane.

Thanks, I'll pull his mane shorter next time. The string is some material I really like for braiding, but it frays if I mess with it too much.
