Braiding or clipping those annoying hairs

okay.. so my mare's mane goes almost all the way down her withers, and it gets stuck under my saddle, so I pull it out and it looks all weird.
Should I just cut them off, or braid them?
When I running braid her mane, it never makes it all the way there because they're such an awkward length and thickness

You can kinda see what I mean in the pictures
Does anyone else have this problem?

I clip the mane along the wither, so that it won't ride under the saddle. Makes life much easier!

I cut up just far enough so that it doesn't interfere with the saddle, so around halfway up the wither.
