I really think it would be fun to be a horse groom, after school for a year of so, & during school holidays, weekends etc. So what different braids are their for mane & tails?? I know how to do the normal, tail braid. But what are some different mane braids & how do you do them. Please include pics :)
Well there the Hunter braid and the Eventing/Dressage braid, both of which I show here
Which is just a french braid on the mane, a long mane.
Then there is the basket weave. How to braid a horses mane into a basket weave | eHow.com
How to Braid a Horse's Mane in the Basketweave Pattern - wikiHow Have fun, being a groom is alot more than braiding though!

Exhibitor Labs : French Braiding The Long Mane
I used to do what I called a 'diamond braid' on my son's pony. You need a longish mane to do it. I don't have a decent picture to show you what I mean though.
I divided the mane with bands just as you would for an ordinary braid, so you end up with a whole heap of little pony tails.
Then I would split the first and second ponytail and join the two halves together and repeat for all the other ponytails.
Then, for the next 'row' I would repeat the process.
You end up with rows of diamond shapes.
It can look very effective.
This is the only photo I can find of it, not sure if it shows the plait good enough, but may give you a bit of an idea.
