    Hey everyone,

    I'm just wondering if it is compulsory to plait for ponyclub D grade at an ODE coz my boy looks better plaited up but coz he has really sensitive skin he gets sore around his mane area when plaited up and won't flex properly in my dressage test... His mane is pulled and is even and looks quite neat when not plaited up but i was wondering if I have to plait up?? Any ideas?

    if the plaiting effects him id say dont do it. im sure the judges would prefer happy horse than not so happy horse. dont know rule wise though

    Plait loose not tight, use tons of super hold hair spray.

    But find out from the PC if you are required to or not.

    If in doubt HOG IT pmsl, only joking mate!
