PostSubject: Plaiting?   Tue Nov 28, 2006 9:46 am

If you show your horses, do you plait their manes and tails?
We dont plait the cobs because their sposed to be shown in their natural state. But when i was working at racing stables i used to take the thoroughbreds to the races all the time and however much i try i have always been crap at plaiting manes, and tails; i dont even know where to start!
Hows ur plaiting and do u have any special tips to help me out?
I can plait a womens hair fine. And manes i can do but not to a brilliant standard. Ive read up on how to do itand ive been shown loads of times but i think its just one of those things i will never get.
I really wish i could tho.

I'm quite good at tales but not manes!!
I can never get manes into nice neat little balls, they always end up like footballs!!! pmsl!!
Tails i can do, i don't really have any tips, just practice!!

I cant do the tails at all. Manes i can do but they look really scruffy!
Youd thaught id of learned by now. I had to do manes to pass my NVQ Level 2 in race horse care. I passed it but they werent very good.
I will continue to practise when i get time, but its just soooo frustrating!

I can do both but it takes a bit to get the hang of it again as it's not something I do often.

I did just want to get advice on my highlands mane though as ypu show the cobby type. Her mane is lovely and thick the way a highlands should be but it looks really bushy lst the bottom where the gold highlighted bits are. I want to give her a tidy up but not sure how.

If you use a pulling comb you can thin out the bushy parts of the mane with that.
