Should I trim his Rockstar mane?

To trim or not to trim for a CDE that is the question.
Should I leave it long and braid?
Should I leave it long and not braid?
Should I trim it up?
I posted some examples of what he looks like trimed and not.
Thanks for looking

Oh my, I thought everyone would say cut it, which is the way I was leaning.
I do think long helps with the horseflys. Now I am in quite a delema.
Long -6 Cut - 0
Thanks for the replys!!

Here is a photo I took on todays drive, we were trotting and you can just see that his mane is flowing and barely flipping up at the ends, I love that. The bridle path looks like a peacock though.

I'm going to say trim it. I bet he'd look real sharp with the short mane braided up short would look smart when he's in harness.

I second the running braid!
Or a lattice if it's allowed!

I would leave it, but he needs his bridle path done! He would look sharp with those little button braids or whatever thier called, or a running braid like someone mentioned. He's beautiful!
