Re: Spam:****, [RC] braids - Nancy Sturm

Do the braids actually help the horse cool or are they strictly for looks?

I ride limited distance on a TWH that does not pulse down as fast as an Arab. I've learned all sorts of tricks for getting his pulse down and for this particular horse, one of those tricks is braiding his mane. It isn't even particularly thick and he's a fine coated horse, but he does seem to cool faster with that hair off his neck.
