Question breed haircuts

Hi, I have 3 standardbred horses and I was told to groom my horse the popular styles that are in for the breed. Any advice?

Depends upon the breed Short and pulled for my Tb and my Shetland cross NF and long and natural for my haffies. For outing short manes are plaited and long manes have a running plait.

I voted natural be it depends on the breed AND what they are doing. I love my horse's mane being long and natural. But if I were doing equitation stuff I would pull here mane.

Depends on what you do with them

I think it depends on what you do, and your horse. My appy filly has a thin, miserable mane, but it folds perfectly over. If I keep it trimmed to about 3 or so inches long, it looks like I spent hours pulling her mane for western pleasure or something. Naturally not a hair out of place, perfect. If I let it grow out, it gets straggly and gross.

I've had horses before with naturally thick manes, and cutting them short looks ridiculous, and pulling a thick mane like that would be awful.

I even knew one horse with a thin neck that rubbed his mane off one summer, so we roached it. By the fall he had 2-3 inches of new growth and it looked SO much better. The extra bit of mane sticking up made him look like he had a much thicker neck and was better ballanced over all.

I'm planning on doing a few horsemanship class and 4H with them.
