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 cant 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.

I didn't hog it yet. I want to know if hogging it will take off points in a show.

I can not see how it would be counted against you if you do a nice neat job.

From what little of her shows in the photos I think she has a neck that can pull off a roached mane well.
