English Halter Class- Mane & Tail Question
 
Hey guys...I am showing my horse in some English halter/showmanship classes and have a question about his mane & tail.

As for his mane, Is a running braid acceptable or does it need to individual braids? Is a plaited tail acceptable for those classes? I want him to look the very best he can!!!

Thanks!

If i was showing in a rated Model Hunter I would do a Hunter Braids and a Tail Plait. If I am doing an unrated or open show with no USEF or other H/J association rating I keep my mane pulled and neat but unbraided, same with the tail.

Same here :D I tried to get away with no braiding at state last year but 'mom' made me. I didn't do english halter or showmanship but did o/f anyways my point of posting is you can always call managment and has if they have any rules that prevent you from doing one type of braid over another?

Ive used a running braid, hunter braids, and scallops in english halter classes. The tail is optional depending on dicipline...

Thanks for the advice. I'm gonna call the people running the show and ask them what they require.
