    Maybe I'm showing my age, but no Olympic show jumper has looked better than these two in their "hunter" braids:

    More braids would create a much more attractive look IMO, and show off their necks much better.
    You have already made the poit that you don't like "button" braids. You are entitled to your opinion. (I happen to find millions of "hunter braids" unattractive. Chacun a son goute.)

    But you claimed
    For your information, the USET jumper team horses competed for many years with what you are now calling "hunter" braids.
    and it appears your "information" is somewhatout of date.
