Grand Prix Riders' #Braiding Advantage – Lucky Braids

Grand Prix Riders' #Braiding Advantage

“Horsewomen are always several notches above riders....”

                                                                            – Judy Richter 

Two-time American Invitational Winner Molly Ashe Cawley braided Carissimo before their recent double clear. She was brought up to work hard and keep tuned into the horses. Molly's mother, keen #horseman Sue Ashe, set her up for success in that way.

When third in the world, Peter Wylde still braided his top horse. It was part of their *program,* when they got in a groove together before a class. I taken care of Peter’s first grand prix horse. Yet later, when I offered to braid for him at United States Equestrian Team Headquarters, he declined. Their routine *worked.* During SEVEN selection trials, he had ONE rail.

“Braiding well is part of horsemanship. It is a small part, but those little things add up.” -Michael Matz 4-time Olympian and racehorse trainer

If you know how to braid and manage your time well, it is very relaxing for you and the horse. Thing is, braiding is a bit like salsa dancing. You can braid with all your heart, but that bottomline won't be perfect. You really need to know and execute each step accurately. Then, you can sail! If this seems interesting, whether a beginner or seasoned professional, you’ll up your game with the Lucky Braids DVD/Tool and all-important, specialized BRAIDING YARN.
Guaranteed, or your money back. ~Ruthann
