How To Get A Longer Mane

My horse has a really thick mane and tail, and his tail is also pretty long. It's about two fingers away from touching the ground, but his mane seems to have hit a point and just doesn't grow anymore. I was wondering if you had any ideas on what to do to help it grow.


To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Horses are like humans in that manes sometimes have a max length that it will grow before its stops. Some people are like that as well. You can things like MTG by putting some on roots or any other alternate air growth conditioners, but I fear that you might not get any extra results if it looks like its already stopped.

Mtg does work really well. I have an appy so I feel the pain of a mane that just won't grow. Just apply a tiny bit once a week and if you would like you could keep it braided while you try growing it out to lessen the breakage. I don't braid my horses mane because we have a really bad fly problem in tennessee but the mtg still worked like a charm

MTG does work REALLY well. They also came out with "MTG Silver Linings" whitch smells like herbs compared to BBQ chips.

No, I don't like plaid-- oh, you think that's weird because I am a "farmer", and farmers wear plaid-- well if you looked at my little dirt patch I call a garden, you would think twice

Flax seeds have a really good effect on mane/ tail as well as general coat shine. Won't work as well or as fast as mtg though.
