Do You Have To Braid For Dressage?
Do you have to braid your horse for training level dressage? If not, is it still better to braid? I was just wondering so that I can plan my day before the show accordingly.

I never did for schooling shows. For recognized shows, yes.

I always braid for dressage. Even if its a dumpy show. It shows how much you care, and shows how nice your horse is. It's also something different and the judge will appreciate it:) hope this helps

I used to braid for schooling shows, but my horse has a very long neck, so now I reserve braiding for recognized shows. It does not affect scoring. I do agree it shows a certain level of respect for your horse and the sport as a whole.
