Getting a mane to lie flat - how long does it last
I have a question about getting a mane to lie flat - if you braid it, or put a sleazy on the horse, or band it, or whatever, does the mane only lie flat until the next time it gets wet, or will it eventually learn to always lay flat?
My horse has a mohawk when it's pulled, and I've never tried to make it lie down before, but I don't really want to go through the trouble if the results will only be temporary :\
We do hunters, but not big shows - nobody braids at our shows, but most everyone else have lovely pulled manes that lie down obediently :P His mane isn't super thick, but I think it's coarse or something, which makes it stick straight up. When I let it get longer in the winter, it gets heavy enough to flop over
