Horse Hairstyles

Hey Everyone,

Today Rachel and Lilly got their horses ready for The Camp Innerstar Horse Competition this weekend.

Rachel and Lilly walked to the Stables to start getting ready. 
(Aren't they just too cute?)

Rachel rides Nikki in the "Jumping" competition.

Lilly rides Smokey in the "Dressage" competition.

Nikki and Smokey
Okay, let's get started!

First Brush your horse's hair.
Style Number 1
Begin to mini braid the mane.

Try using alternating elastic colors.
Style Number 2
Since the tail is so long . . . 

 . . . we are going to braid it into 3 braids . . .

 . . . and braid those braids together. 
(secure with matching elastics if you'd like)

Style Number 3
Now for Smokey - Brush his hair

We are going to braid his mane like a french braid, 
but only take more hair when taking from the right side.

Finished look

Again, the tail is very long.
Style Number 4

Rope braid by twisting 2 sections one direction,
 then twist together in the other direction.

A closer look

Okay, now you are done! Come back this weekend to find out how Rachel & Nikki and Lilly & Smokey did in their competition!
