I did a search and came up with a lot of braiding debates, but none focused on cost. I'm doing my first rated show in a decade this weekend (an AA on a horse I've ridden twice... Go big or go home?) and am loosely doing my budget. I know the overall numbers are scary at best. What is a mane running these days in zone 1? mane/tail combo? Thanks for the input! I figure if I am well turned out at least I won't call extra attention to my 'riding.'
Thanks for all of the input - a price relief for a change. I had overheard $80 for just a mane and $50 for just a tail and that seemed... high. Really high. Hopefully $80 is for both (even though I am just doing mane).
