Kentucky Performance Products: Braiding Pro Tip

Quick tips from Lisa Barry!

By Lisa Barry, FEI 5* Rider and Trainer

Mix a travel size bottle of hairspray with water in a ratio of 1 part hairspray to 4 parts water, and put it in a small spray bottle. It will give you just enough stick to help make your braids beautiful without breaking the bank!

Sponsored by Ker-A-Form™ coat and hoof conditioner. For a glossy hair coat and a luxurious mane and tail, choose Ker-A-Form.

Ker-a-Form is my favorite hoof and coat supplement! Not only does it produce healthy skin, shiny coats and strong hoof walls, but it’s also palatable and easy on the wallet!”
