I'm curious- What kind of braids do you do? I don't think you can braid traditional hunter braids with a long mane

i think it depends on the individual horse and person and what discipline they are in. here are my neddies:

william:mane left to grow, only a foal so not doing anything

buffy: hogged and pulled tail. she is ridden cob and working hunter pony.

rolex(now pts): long mane and tail with long clipped bridlepath,used for showing

orin (now pts) mane and tail pulled. used for showjumping, eventing
