    Question How do you do Scallop Braids???

    I saw this type of braid in another thread (the long mane HUS thread!)

    They said they were called Scallop Braids?










    How do you do these???? Are there any old threads on how do them, any videos, websites, tutorials, on how to do them? Could any one give me a break down?
    I will love you forever and ever and ever if you did! Lol I sound like I'm 9 right now! Guess new braids get me excited

    Yep, I've become obsessed. I'm going to have to experiment on my poor mare tomorrow!

    I hope not! My horse has a medium/longish mane, but I do trim it sometimes.

    It looks like you just braid it in sections pretty far apart and tuck the end of the braid under the beginning of the next one. It would have to be secured somehow, which we probably just can't see, but that's what it looks like to me.

    FarFromOver- I was thinking the same thing, but I wonder how they get secured and how exactly they start the braids and all the petty details.

    That first picture, the black at the top, it looks like the first braid is run back into the third braid . . . the second into the fourth . . . and so on. That would be the way to get those closely spaced braids. And, if you look closely, you can see the thread that they used on the beginnings and ends of the braids

    The second, the palomino, I have no clue

    They've somehow used thread and tied the end of the braid into the beginning of the next braid on the third picture (if you look at the far right braid you can see the threaded end that is lighter than the hair) but how they've kept the end from sticking up is a mystery. Maybe they're braiding that "tail" back in and making the other two sections of hair larger to compensate?

    Good luck

    Thanks! That does seem to be what they did. I'm sure when I try mine will look quite goofy! lol

    My daughter had very long, beautiful dark hair when she was younger . . . she asked me to french braid it one time . . . and one time only. When I was done (and pretty well pleased with myself) she went into the bathroom to look at it and I heard an exasperated "Mom! OMG it looks like a HORSE'S TAIL!" I told her that was the only braid I knew how to do

    So, don't worry, at least she won't be going to school looking like her mom is hopeless

    For scallop braids you have to have a decent length of mane, it won't work well with a pulled, short mane. You do normal braids, then take the yarn that is hanging on the end of braid #1 and pull it up through the top of braid #2 (or #3, whichever you prefer), then you cross the ends underneath and overtop and tie it. And continue the rest down the mane doing it every 2nd, or every 3rd braid, whichever you chose to do.
