if i hog my pony's mane will it change my score in western pleasure shows?
I have a chincoteage pony who currently has a very thick mane that is just impossible to pull. I would band it for western shows but scince I can't pull her mane, I roached it a while ago but now its grown back to the point where it drops over to the side so im thinking about hogging the whole thing off. (except her forelock) I want to know if hogging her mane would get me pentalized in a western show. She is very cobby and has a really huge neck for a pony so I know the cut wouldnt make her neck look bad. Here's a pic of her mane.
