    $45-55 for a mane in either place; about $40 more for a tail and $10 extra for a fake. I've paid this in New England and WEF as recently as this year. I can do my own jumper plaits so have no idea...

    Unless you yourself are a professional braider, if you are showing in the hunters/eq, hire a professional braider. Nothing gives you away as "an outsider" like an amateur braiding job. Other than...

    Although it may seem easiest to pay for horses by working at the barn, many many many other part time jobs pay much better for easier work. Sure, you won't be around horses, but "being around...

    Try the RWR no knot hairnet. It worked in making "fake" hunter hair for me when my hair was too short for a ponytail. Much easier and more comfortable than bobby pins under your helmet!

    I own that horse in TB form (6 years old and showing successfully in the 1m-1.05m with plenty of extra scope - knock on wood, will be a 1.2m+ horse) and his price would absolutely be more than that. ...

    It exists, but you need a good eye and the ability to travel or buy off video. It is definitely doable for a 1.2m horse; it is a lot harder to say that any horse not yet jumping courses at height...

    It unfortunately has sheepskin, but the Nunn Finer is quite nice for the money and their rubber reins are to do for. The Beval Conquer is very nice too.
