I know you said youtube hasn't really been helping and I don't know if this is exactly what you're looking for but I found this to be the easiest way to do it!

US braids for showing classes - the look is slightly different to the UK and I think also the Canadian and Australian plaits

My suggestion is to practice more. Even if you know all the steps and process of plaiting, it is a tough skill that most people don't get on their first try (or 10). This fall and winter when the heat isn't bugging you and the bugs are gone, plait once a week. Soon you will get better at it and you can work out a method that works well for you!

Thanks everyone, I do agree that I need to practice much more. It just seems like such a chore and I hardly want to spend hours trying to plait instead of riding while I am out with my horse... But that's just my laziness coming out, hahaha!

I think this winter will be full of plaiting practice.
