    Turquoise to match your outfit. Or black if you're in black.

    No help here ML, I am not into braids. Probably clear. I've liked the ones that are simple, like your beginning photo and then the mane neatened and shortened. See, no help. :(

    I personally like contrast, but ik my coach would get on me if I did that so I either use chestnut or clear. I don't even braid/ band normally except for an occasional running braid for the more important shows, or if its really hot, followed with a tail braid cus its required when you braid a mane

    Have someone in the states buy them and send them on to you. I would volunteer, lol.

    About 13.00 for me. Shipping is a bummer. Gonna look on amazon, we have Prime.

    Not on USA amazon. So let me know if you really want these, 4 day shipping to my house and no idea how long it would take to get to you. Consider it a good will gesture to make up to you Canadians for imposing Trump upon you, lol.

    CAD0BE42-478A-4B2E-B444-4DF65FD27906.png Decorations are specifically prohibited by USEF.... I have attached the rule.... I’m not sure if Canada would have the same rule.
