bridle path for a Morgan

How long should I have my Morgans bridle path.

Usually the rule of thumb is you lay the horses ear back against it's neck, and that's how far you cut it.. Exceptional for an Arabian though.. Since they tend to have longer bridle paths.

I think if you show in breed shows, the Morgan path is a bit longer than the norm as well, let me see if I can find a pic. My girl's path is a bit longer than norm.

Here's a link that show's what I'm trying to explain...not quite at far back as Arabs but still a bit further than the norm.

Thanks big help

Looked at the web sight and they do look longer then normal. That is good because Captain rub out a section of his mane while reaching for hay under his manger. It had just grow out after the last time he had sone this.

This is about average for all of the horses we have at our barn.

Would you say that's one and a half ear lengths?

Yeah, I would say that sounds about right. When trimming between shows leave a little bit before the full mane, that way by the time shows come around you haven't accidentally trimmed it so long it looks like an arab one.
Like on this horse, that little short bit sticking up, then when you have a show just trim that off.
