But I don't braid either for dressage, because I don't have the time to take out all those blasted things after dressage - nor do I care to take the time to do so. So I just make sure Nelson's mane is clean, tidy, pulled and non interfearing. Besides, I like to have mane out on the CC course incase I need to grab onto it.
Ewww, I do braid. Almost always. I use rubber bands on the smaller shows and they take two minutes to remove. I can make rubber band braids look almost as good as sewn in braids. I braid for the smaller shows to stay in practice.
Grab mane? OF COURSE!! That's why God put all that hair down their neck!
