Purchase: My coach prefers braiding with elastics rather than thread so I thought I'd give it a try. Foxhunter in Stouffville, Ontario, Canada sold packages of 500 Roma braiding elastics for around $2.00 without taxes.

Likes: My husbands horse has a flaxen mane and tail and it's hard to find an elastic or thread colour to match. The natural coloured Roma elastics, while not a perfect match, did an okay job. I like how cheap braiding elastics are compared to thread. A 500 pack gives you plenty to braid with, and these elastics are great for other things, too. They've come in useful as bridle keepers in a pinch when one has broken or gotten lost.

Dislikes: One of the main reasons I don't normally use elastics to braid is that they snap at the worst time - like when you're two steps from entering the show ring with your horse. I think they're okay for quick braid jobs (for example, when you only need the mane braided for a short period of time), but I find them limiting. I guess they could be better suited for banding or taming a mane...

Quality: 500 soft rubber braiding elastics in a Ziploc-like bag. I'm not a fan of the bag either as when you're working in a dusty stall or barn isle, the zippers on the bag can get clogged with dirt and won't close properly. Some braiding elastics come in little plastic tubs, which I think is a better idea.

Summary: An okay product, but my coach hasn't sold me on braiding elastics yet.
