    Default To braid, or not to braid?

    My horse will probably end up going HC at Greenwood next weekend. I'm usually all for "tradition", but under that circumstance would you braid?

    Nope. I often don't braid anything below Prelim anyway, HC or not.

    Nope. I don't braid unless someone holds me screaming on the ground and forces horsehair between my fingers. And we miraculously seem to score just fine.

    Hahahaha! I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who feels this way. I think my trainer has given up on me on the braiding thing.
