Fun Braid ideas?
Does anyone have any good braid- ideas for the English jumper show string?
I`m very uncreative when it comes to hair, any braiding tips would be great.

What kind of mane/tail does your horse have?

Umm, if you have a mane that's ~1 ft, you can fish net braid it, not really a braid but looks really good!

Does the show require a certain few types of braids?

If the show allows it, and you have a fairly long mane, I really like the look of Dutch running braids!

If you know how to make a regular running braid, a Dutch running braid is the same thing except instead of crossing the outside strand OVER the middle one, you cross it UNDER it. This makes it look like a full braid instead of it just looking woven on the bottom if that makes sense to you.

If you don't know how to do a running braid, all you do is start at the top of the mane, grab a section and divide it into three parts and start your braid like a normal braid. Then, every time you cross over a piece you add to it. It's essentially the horse equivalent of making a French braid on yourself.

Agree, info on mane (pics!) and type of show

Here's a link to a previous forum discussion on this that may give you more ideas:

What type and level of show is it? If you are doing a rated show, it may be best to stick with something traditional.

Get the book Braiding Manes and Tails. It has lots of great ideas!
