You may need to check the regulations for the show that you are going to, but I believe that most halter classes usually have the mane pulled short and banded to show off the conformation of the neck. If that is the case, dying the mane would be a waste of time and product, because you will need to pull the majority of the length of her mane out.

Thank you! (: And yeah, I was trying to figure out a way of not getting it on her, didnt think of petrolium jelly! Not too sure of what she's going to think when im coming at her with gloves one.... O.O Lol!

Oh no no! The walking horse model classes are different. Walking horses are supposed to have the long flowing manes an tails, and most every model class i've seen, they've had long manes. I think what your talking about is for quarter horses maybe? I've only got to fully train her how to park out, and then we'll be ready to go! Lol. And plus, i'd be in tears if I EVER have to cut her mane and tail. I've worked hard on maintaining it! Lol.
