It doesnt hurt the horses as they have no nerves in the mane but can feel uncomfortable so maybe tie up a hay net to nibble on whilst doing it if the mane is very long and thick don't do it all in one day do little bits at a time. For bathing my genereal rule of thumb if its warm enough for me to wear a tee-shirt comfortably its warm to wash You can get different horse shampoos in the tack shop for differnent colours and stuff which are quiet good just make sure to remove all residue after or can give the horses sore flaky skin. Hope this helps!
thanks this helped me a lot
