    Unfortunately, he looks like he has a cowlick mid-mane. I had a mare like that and her mane was ALWAYS a battle, even long. Just the way it goes. Wet it, band it, leave it a couple days, take it out. It will lay down more than it is now. Repeat as necessary. Other than that, you pretty much just have to let it grow. It doesn't look bad though. You could french braid it down before you ride, if the other riders are giving you a hard time. Takes 15 min, just pull it out after. :)

    I ride at an all-around show barn. I don't show yet but I really don't like his mane and just wanted to know if there was a way to make it grow faster.

    I must admit, I have no idea what an all around show barn is.

    Then pretty much everyone has a short mane...... Because they have to braid or band for shows.

    May I steal him, pretty please? I don't think his mane looks that bad. The nice thing about hair is that it grows back. At least he has a nice neck for it.

    Most horses manes grow back really quickly. He looks cute with a little awkward mohawk haha... it'll grow back just as long and thick and beautiful as it was, just take good care of it and don't brush it hard.

    I HAVE A SOLUTION!
    It worked for me.

    Get a horse sleezy.
    Like these

    Stretch Hoods - Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses

    The are kind of expensive in my eye but I was able to use one of my ex friends's and when I would take it off it would be laying flat,striaght,with no fro. Now these do take time..it's not an overnight deal but a few times it will help it. See if someone has one you can borrow but if you have money for one buy one on craigslist,tack store,ebay,or wherever!


    Let me know
