A thin bridle path looks neat and tidy. One that is over an inch big looks strange, unless it's on an arab ;P

I am a fan of all natural when it comes to horses. But I do always cut about an inch of a bridle path, enough to fit a halter or bridle. I never like to cut more than that.

Ok, we were able to get photos of Command Bux yesterday! Yay! Here they are: Our Stallion -

.. He still has a ton of growing to do. He is very butt high right now :)

He looks great. He's not THAT butt high...LoL. I'd guess he was a 4 year old by those pictures, not just 2.

I don't do bridle paths on my horses. I think of a horse wearing a bridle as a person wearing a headband. I think it would be a lot more comfortable with hair underneath it than with the stubble being rubbed the wrong way. I've heard a lot of guys with buzz cuts say they hate it when someone rubs their hair. I don't like the look of a bridle path, either.

I do bridle paths! I personally think they look attractive.
I fold my horse's ear back and make it that long, because that's how I've always done it.
For my Shetlands, I do a longer one. About 5 inches long.
This is not my pic or my horse, (got it from google) but this is about what the bridle paths look like on them.
