That's how my mom is when I cut their tails strait across the bottom, she says it doesn't look natural. :p But if it gets too long what am I going to do?
Plus I like it straight.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I was always under the impression that they can only feel the pressure, but they don't have the pain receptors in their mane that we have on our scalp? Therefore it wouldn't hurt them to pull on their mane.

It looks good though OP!

Awesome

That looks great for the first time, We keep two of our horses manes pulled and short, and we have my horse (Showing Saddleseat) Whose mane is down past the bottom of his neck. Either way it looks good on yours!

I do not like it!
Looks like it is -cut. Thick through the middle and will be difficult to braid correctly.

Pulled manes are by far better and unless a horse has a very thin mane. Should never be cut.

If you work her first then pull, it will be easy. Pull the tiniest bit at a time. I have to agree though, I am not a fan of the cut look.

Take the scissors and cut vertically instead of horizontally....it will take out that blunt line. Or use thinning shears(scissors)
I'm a hair stylist and this is what I do on my horse as well as people's hair! It gets rid of bulk and blunt lines.

I think it looks good for a cut mane And I agree with xlioness about cutting vertically; I cut my bangs like that so they aren't blunt cut, haha.
I never pulled/cut my Arab's mane for jumping and he has a pretty thick mane. It didn't get in the way too much, but I did used to put it in a running braid until I got used to jumping a horse without a short mane
I hope the vet clears your horse to jump, and even if not I'm glad you still have good plans for her!

Oooh yes, I have plans for her even if she can't jump. She's not getting off that easy.
