Have you considered banding it like western halter/pleasure horses are often done? Their manes are normally no longer than 2-3 inches and the bands keep them laying down and looking neat.



Though to be perfectly honest, I have no idea if that would work because I've never banded a horse....or roached one.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Agree with trying banding. And its not as hard as you might think, just have someone help you, watch videos, and practice :)

This is going to sound really girly so bear with me.

Do you have a flat iron for human hair?

Get that puppy, and iron the hair over to the right side. Then get some hairspray and mist it, then take our hand and smooth it over. It worked on Rebel for me.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Yes, but it still stand out, just not straight. Lol. Banding is the easiest type of "braiding" I've ever done.

I've heard that straightening your horse's hair makes it fall out so I didn't try it.

Someone at my old barn straightened her belgian's tail and it fell out and wouldn't grow for almost five years.

I'll just put the good 'ol MTG to it.

It's something you need almost like air or water. ♥

So we shaved underneath Jynxy's mane and slinkied her for a couple days after soaking the mane in Satin Sheen. SUCCESS:

yikes, all I can say is, I'm glad I have a walker and natural manes are the norm.

I straighten my own hair [I have a fro if I don't, x.x] and I can't imagine the tediousness if my horse's hair required as much attention as mine.. lol

We drink to our youth, to the days come and gone; for the age of oppression is now nearly done.

She has the Morgan mane/tail/forelock but when I bought her the previous owner tried trimming it to be like hunters/WP hair but completely failed at it so I roached it. Now its growing out rather fast but still too slow. Lol.

Not helpful to OP but this post has convinced me to roach Comics mane this spring. I've been thinking about it because it's awful and thin and half stands up anyway. The mohawk look would be an improvement! :) Good luck with getting your mane to lay down.
