    Default Video on how to do Button braids for dressage?

    Does anyone have a link for a youtube on how to do the big fat button braids? I've tried to follow the written directions, and just get confused.

    I know hunter braids from my previous incarnation, and braiding for dressage looks SO much easier - many, many fewer braids! 12-15 big buttons spaced out a little more, compared to 40 tiny bumps all very close together. I can do that in less than 2 hours!

    Any advice is great, but videos are even better!

    Thanks!

    Braiding tutorial from EN

    After learning how to do buttons, I'll never braid any other way!

    Default Thank you!

    Thanks so much! Excellent video - and since I am lower level eventing, I can get away with many fewer buttons. Yay!

    This is the method I first learned when switching from hunter braids to buttons (Dutton Method). I find it the easiest

    Default Nice!

    That was great! Since I've only braided with yarn, I can certainly do that!!

    Thank you all!!
