Anonymous: When you braid do yo use yarn or thread? Everyone I've talked to says that they use yarn but from what I've seen, you get really flat braids from it. Personally I like braids that look more round and I've only seen those made by using thread. Do I like braids that aren't actually correct or does it depend on what type of show you're in or personal preference? Thank you so much for your help!
yarn! it depends on the type of braid you are doing. Yarn is ALWAYS used for hunter braids, thread (a waxed string usually) is used for dressage rosettes. However when i braid my jumpers, i use yarn as it make a far more secure rosette than thread!
