You could try wetting it, then braiding it all to one side.

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

There are sleezie type things that are made for that. Here is one you could try: Smith Brothers
see that the mane is all to one side and leave it on. I have not used this so i dont know if it works or how long to keep it on but you could experiment!

I know exactly what you mean. My mare's mane does the same thing, and her mane is really long. I think it's from their heads being down grazing all day. I banded my horses mane to try to fix it. Wet it down with a leave in conditioner, and band it down. Replace the bands as necessary, and re-condition daily. That's what I do for it anyway.

Good luck, by the way our mares look a whole lot alike. It's really very freaky to me.
