How should I trim his hair

Just wondering if its getting too long, stringy. I did buy some detangler and for the past few months have been working on brushing it out and stuff. Hopefully it will fill out and become more fluffy but I think maybe it needs to be trimmed/clipped some.

Thoughts?

Your horse's mane is quite similar in length to Warhorse's. Looks just as good as well.

Some horses will always have a thick mane, some will have thin . Its mostly genetics, just like some people have thick hair, some have thin and some are bald.
Just be happy its as long as it is, I had a horse that was lucky to grow a mane 3 inches long his whole life.
