World-Class Braiding: Manes & Tails (Cat Hill, Emma Ford)
A handy quick-reference with step-by-step color photos and easy-to-follow instructions from two top professional grooms.
Braiding a horse's mane kind of comes with the territory-who can resist playing with all that hair? While it may begin as a downtime activity on a rainy afternoon or fun with friends after riding lessons, braiding takes on a life of its own when it comes to competition.
Professional grooms and others who braid on the show circuit can make a living doing just that when they have the skills to do it fast and do it well.
Professional grooms Cat Hill and Emma Ford, co-authors of the bestselling World-Class Grooming for Horses, have braided thousands of horses for a variety of disciplines over the course of their esteemed careers in the equestrian industry. Now they've highlighted those skills in a book conceived to be a helpful barn companion-one you can take with you and keep in your tack trunk, providing a go-to reference whenever you need it. Chock full of full-color photographs that illustrate every step of the process, readers learn techniques for:
Braiding down-a nice, tight, smooth braid is the key to a sophisticated finish.
Using thread, yarn, or rubber bands.
Properly finishing and removing braids to avoid hair damage.
Button braids two ways.
Unpulled manes and long manes.
With their expertise, top-tier standards, and trademark clarity as professionals who have made teaching their trade an integral part of their lives, Hill and Ford provide everything you need to know to turn a horse out with professional polish, ready to impress the judges and wow the crowds.
