Hunter braids

I bought a hunter this year…and haven’t ridden hunt since I was 13 yrs old. Back then, I was able to braid my own horse (yarn braids), but have long forgotten how. Heck, sometimes I have a hard time remembering my kids names…and let’s not even talk about where I put the car keys!

My trainer said that some people “sew” hunter braids with thread (not the yarn ones), and it is very nice looking.

Does anyone know how to do this, or knows someone who does? I’d like see if I can learn how to do it.

I’ll be at Jubilee and OKC, and would love to just watch it being done.

    Look up Lindsay Errington (Marlett Stables) at Jubilee or OKC. She does the yarn ones and they look like they are “sew-in”.

  2. Get the book “Grooming To Win.” It is an oldie but goodie, and has drawings to explain everything.
