Thanks everyone for the comments and likes on this one, special thanks to Gilly for the GEA and to the following for their User Award, Chris, Adam, Alan and Dave.

Sandy the owner has two large prints from the session and they both have pride of place in her home.

Ju it is the owner who does the plaiting, we hope to have further sessions with other styles soon.

Darren, I was tempted to remove the chain but it's part of the head gear so I thought it best it stays.

This horse is fine about it, she often treated to various styles by her owner and is very patience whilst the plaits are completed, some take a long time to do, she loves the fuss and attention.
