Description of the book "Braiding Manes & Tails: A Visual Guide to 30 Basic Braids":
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 PDF 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!
