Publisher Comments:

Horse trainer and instructor Charni Lewis brings the wonderful process of braiding to life in her step-by-step guide to 30 beautiful braids. Full-color photographs and detailed illustrations clearly show the twists and turns that make each style unique and the hand positions necessary to hold those ropes of equine hair in place. To keep hands free for braiding, the book has a nail hole at the top of each page for easy hanging on a post or barn wall.

Lewis begins with detailed advice on choosing and using appropriate tools, preparing the horse, and creating a safe area in which to work. After a chapter on no-nonsense maintenance braids (used primarily to keep the horse neat and clean), she progresses through all the classic braids required for each riding discipline. Finally, Lewis lets loose with braids that are simply fun to do. She encourages readers to experiment with a Scalloped Hunter mane braid or a Fourstrand Weave for the tail. They look gorgeous, and when the novelty wears off, there are many more to try!

Synopsis:

Show Off Your Horse's Good Looks.

Braiding is the final touch that gives your horse a polished, well-turned-out appearance. When it's not show day, braiding can preserve a long mane or full tail, or provide a fun, calming activity for horse and rider. Learn the details that can help you master 30 braids suiting every discipline, including hunter, dressage, saddle-seat, Western, and draft.

The pictures are great, the directions are clear, and we love how you can hang the book up on a nail out at the barn so you can look at the picture while you've go an 1100 pound horse in front of you!
