I don't want to cut it because the rest of her mane is gorgeous, what do I need to do? Its tangled really bad :/

Is cutting it my only option?

And a lot of time.
Work on loosening it a little, and then spread it into sections, then detangle from the ends up.
My sister gets knots EXACTLY like that in her hair. Like her whole head. It takes hours to get them out.

Show sheen. And yeah, loosening it, sometimes taking little pieces and pulling them from the knot until the knot gets smaller works.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

oh no that ain't nothin'! Baby oil or what I use is cowboy magic detangler it works good for that ha ha my filly is constantly getting burs and knots matted into her mane tail and feather its terrible... Just work very slowly from the bottom and avoid pulling as it will worsen the knots

A hoof pick, baby oil, or show sheen, patience, start from the bottom and tease the knots out from the bottom up.
