Our professional braider, Caren Brouse, came to Clairvaux on June 27th to give a mane pulling and braiding clinic. We had 15 attendees who watched and then practiced. There were some cool tricks to learn, like how to work with a really thin mane without making it thinner, or how to deal with an unruly horse who doesn’t want his mane pulled. In the three hour clinic, participants spent half the time on mane pulling and the other half on braiding, even learning how to do tails. We’re planning to have Caren back in the fall, for those who missed it, or those who want to continue to work on their skills. Thanks to all who attended!
