Mane Tamer Substitute

I don't have a mane tamer or a sleazy, and neither is really in the budget at the moment, any tips or tricks on how to protect my horses' braids (or at least keep them from being totally destroyed) the night before the show?

try looking around on ebay, craigslist and other websites for an affordable sleazy.

If you buy a sleazy hood once, it will probably save you money on lots of hairspray or quick braid, braiding bands, and time redoing braids.

Is itt for showing or something else - sowing I would still do it on the morning....

other wise I leave them in but dont roll them up... Use somethign designed to keep plaits in - we have pro plaits over here and it works a treat...

leave out the bottom plaits by the wither and the top ones by the ears and do them from scratch inthe mornign as they are usually the ones that will fall out if any ;)
