    I will generally use scissors just to keep up on it but if I am showing at something big I will use clippers. Just don't get too close to the skin, you can get it pretty short. I generally elave mine just a little stubble but not too bad.

    I use scissors to cut it as short as I can and then I'll go over it with a razor blade to make it look a bit neater.
    When I get off my butt and work with my horse and the clippers his bridle path will just get clipped before a show.

    I have never seen a bridle path done with scissors that did not look like some one cut it with scissors. Please use your clippers.

    I personally do not bother making a bridle path. I simply part the hair for the tack. If I were to make one I would go with the less is more theory. Make it small and see how it works for you. You can always make it larger if you need to. If you clip way too much you are stuck with it.

    I guess the issue I'm having right now is that it was done just before I bought him. So now it's growing back and is all sticking up and doesn't know which way it wants to go. Maybe I'll just let it all grow back then

    Long as you're not showing, and don't care about fussing with his mane, then that should be just fine
