    I know it's early, but I know people tend to book up pretty fast. The 2017 schedule just went live so I am starting to think about these things!!

    Who does everyone use for banding/braiding at QH Congress? I usually do this myself, but want to be sure my horse looks absolutely flawless. I would need a braider for the L1 Am HUS which is on Monday Oct 23, and a bander for the L1 Am SMS which is on Tuesday Oct 24. Any suggestions on people who are reasonably priced would be awesome!

    You can message Parris Rice, I think she will be there and I know she does braiding. Other than that I don't know who does it off the top of my head. I usually do my own for regular level shows.

    ETA: I also know Julian Harris does braiding. He may or may not be there.

    Julian probably will be there too, but I also think my friend Carly Lueck will probably be there again this year. Here's her Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/carly.estr...10154621977730697.1073741831.769640696&type=3

    And a sample of her work. She also does the hunter/jumper circuits here.

    This is the one time Foxy was done. Normally don't do English, but do it at the Novice Championships. Now he is roached.

    And a more recent one.

    And she does tails too.

    Braider wise, I don't know know the name my daughter's trainer uses, but she she uses her at all the shows. I would have to ask my daughter. When Foxy used to have a mane I have used Ryan Berry, I think he braids too, Tina Freeland, and the best one is Michelle Swanson, she is so popular with the halter people that she has to cut them off since I guess it is a bit different in how halter people get their horses banded.

    A fancy banding by her.

    Thanks, Carly is. Everyone uses her in Colorado first. And the one time she couldn't make it her replacement was excellent.
