Question Brading or banding ideas

0929131901b_01.jpeg

This is my foundation Morgan gelding. We do mostly local shows and show western pleasure any ideas on how to do his mane for the show ring? I don't want to cut it since we don't do anything big right now. But do you guys have any ideas on how to make him stand out in the western pleasure show ring??

Beautiful! Don't cut!!

I would do a diamond braid, you will keep the mane nice without losing the length. I think most other thing you do would look lame at that length. You could try banding a couple rows too

Google "Morgan western pleasure". Seems to be a lot of images with morgans with natural manes, no bands or braiding. Their bridle path is just shaved longer. :)

I don't know about the foundation vs "modern" Morgan showing. I think he would look silly with the bridle path like that, longer than it is sure, but not like that. I would almost want more of a QH look. Honestly for local shows it probably really doesn't matter. Here is what I meant by banding.. (sorry for long link)

First of all, don't cut it! It takes pretty long with some horses to grow it back, and you're in the ring for maybe 10 minutes? I have a dun with long dark mane with highlights that stick straight up.. Everyone says to cut it but I don't.. Sometimes, you can do English braids for western pleasure, I did a box braid for horsemanship,showmanship, and pleasure.. It works, just make sure it's nice and put together, not sloppy

I can't find the box braid:( these are other braid of done, the one with the braid on too was really easy, I just split his entire mane in two, each half on the other side of his neck, then at the poll, just grabbed a section of hair and started doing a normal braid.. Almost any braid you can do on a human, you can do on a horse:)

Don't braid for western pleasure. Either leave it long or band it.

I would keep it long, He has a BEAUTIFUL mane. And as far as the clipping goes, I don't know how Morgans go, but for arabs at least, you clip their mane to highlight their neck. The more you clip the longer the neck looks when they are collected basically. Just have to make sure you don't clip to far.

I'd leave the mane long. Even now you see many AQHA at higher levels showing with longer mane that has been banded & looks great!

Here is some images,some show some long manes done up
