I have to agree that for a QH the ear rule typically is too long and I stick to just maybe 1-2 inches wide just so my headstall has a smooth place to lay. It can also depend on the level at which you are showing. Some of the higher level APHA horses clip closer to 2 1/2 or so it seems so there isn't any mane coming forward laying over the headstall or merging with the forelock.

Just the size of the headstall for me. Usually about an inch to an inch and a half.

The best riders to teach are those that have endless enthusiasm to do better and are tireless in their drive to achieve.

I'm with those who just clip an inch or two - just enough for the headstall.
