Purchase: Finding the right colour of braiding thread for my husbands horse was hard. She's got a blond mane and tail. Beige stood out, white was too obvious, brown was too dark. I found the Riders Choice waxed thread at Victoria Feeds - The Horse & Hound in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. It cost $5.99 Cdn for a 25 yard roll.

Likes: The thread was listed as white, though it was more of an off-white and seemed to match the horses hair colour just fine. I've heard of people complaining before that waxed thread leaves residue in the horses mane, making braids hard to take out, and the hair tacky afterwards. I competed in a 2 day show, under very hot weather, and kept the braids in for the duration. When I removed them afterwards, there was no residue whatsoever from the braiding thread. Out of all the times I've used waxed thread, I get the same result.

Dislikes: Paying just over six dollars for such a small roll of waxed thread irked me a little, but I needed it. I also find braiding thread to be very hard on your fingers (as opposed to elastics), after pulling on it and knotting braids for a mane and tail, but the outcome is gorgeous.

Quality: Waxed linen braiding thread that comes in a 25 yard roll, and was made in Ontario, Canada by Taylor Made Too Saddlery. Comes in a variety of colours to match your horses mane and tail.

Summary: I'm very much a fan of waxed braiding thread. It makes superior knots that will not back out, holds the braids tight without stretching or breaking, and comes in a variety of colours.
