Hi,
My horse has a fairly long mane that is not pulled. Are there any ways I could plait it so that she looks neat and it doesn't get tangled?
Thank you :D

i wouldn't leave a horse's mane braided, especially if they are being turned out every day. too much chance to get the braids snagged on something and have a large chunk of mane missing.

daily brushing, and 'no more tangles' spray, or other detangler product would be your best bet.

I would simply section her mane off in four or so (depending on how thick her mane is) sections and do very loose regular braids. Or a running braid, although I have found that no matter what, my running braids NEVER stay put when the horse is turned out. At all.

I leave my horse's mane in a running braid pretty much all the time and haven't had any problems with it falling out, getting snagged, or anything like that. But, my horse's mane is REALLY long (like 2-1/2 feet) I cut it back to about 18" last winter and did notice it would start getting loose faster at that length.
