Genetics are huge in the length the mane is able to grow. We have two fillies by the same mare. A two and a three year old. Both have manes that reach down to their shoulders.

At least one of the pictures on Beth Moore's website has NOTHING TO DO with her product - the pic of the long haired andalusian.

She used that picture without my permission - I took the photo, I hold the copyright.

She also put in a link from her site to my video on how to Braid a Mane. She said it was her 'free bonus' worth 19.95 when you bought her product.

She had no permission or right to do so. I filmed that video, I have my copyright written on it. I have always offered free viewing of the video on my own sites.

I do not want my name in any way asssociated with her, her website or her product.

I am currently pursuing legal action for copyright infringement.

Love God. Respect people. Live life. Enjoy your horses.

Yeah, that Beth Moore "book" is actually a scam. If you look at the website, is says things about how you're not guaranteed to make a certain amount of money. It's a work at home scam, disguised as a book.

A couple of others have already posted what I am about to say. Some horses just will not grow long manes. Something in their genetics makes it stop growing when it reaches a certain length.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Agree completely. My husbands horse has mane that just pretty much stays the same length no matter what he does.
I do trim off the thin stuff and oil Vida's a few times a month. I just do the ends to keep them from breaking off and up a little. Not all the way to the root.
I use Africa's Best Herbal Oil from the African American hair section at Wal-Mart.
Its great stuff, I just leave it in.
Heres Vida I think her mane looks healthy although I do need to trim the stragglers again. I cut her forelock after every freeze so its out of her eyes in the winter. It always grows back by fly season. If I don't it gets way too long. I think its hard on her eyesight.


I'm including a rear photo just as an example of the "every horse is different rule."
All of these horses eat the same thing, get the same topical treatments and are pretty much cared for the same. Big difference in tail conditions.

I have been using infuism... (i think that's what its called) I got it at wal mart and I have seen an improvment in duchess's mane... can't say the same for her tail, but her mane has gotten a tad longer and thicker, her tail aint doin so good because some how she ripped a chunk of tail and sking off!!! I don't know how she did it, but she did, it healed now,but I don't know if it will grow back, I hope it does. But the Infuism has helped her mane adn I just keep it braided, but im going to get some mane socks.

quarter horses.....simply the best

I just started using the Infusium 23 leave in conditioner too, after a bath. Great stuff, I still oil it a few times a month too.
That Infusium makes it so much easier to brush, it doesn't tangle hardly at all.

My girl had about a foot of her mane pulled out completely to the skin by a pony last fall. I have been putting MTG on it regulary and it is definitely growing faster than the other victims of this pony. Plus her mane is growing back in much softer in that spot. I like the idea of conditioning it as well. I will have to try that.

Be patient it will take a long time.

Good Luck
