I don't cut Copes because we don't show. I do trim his bridle path and the whiskers on his face, but that's more for me than for him. My boss cuts her horses manes though. She likes to keep them short so she doesn't have to hassle with brushing them out and all. *shrug* To each his own.

I meant to add that while riding with some friends one day I saw a mare with her mane down past her belly. I didn't like it. The people were just leaving out to start the trail and it looked really bad, so I don't think they took care of it. It was longer than some tails I've seen.

I want to roach Misty's mane. She's a Fjord so we won't pull it, but it just looks so unkempt au natural.
Some of the other horses get their manes pulled and it looks good. Everyone else is kept natural. I think it would be good to pull or cut all of them since the horses tend not to get much grooming attention.
