Mane cutting/pulling & one other question
I dont mind a long mane, but Cooper's is beginning to look unkept, even when brushed. I have tried pulling it with a metal comb, and with a mane puller... both were unsuccessful. I know many are against cutting it, but if i were to cut his mane, what kind of scissors should i use?Office industrial strength scissors? Hair scissors? Any tips are appreciated. I have watched mane pullnig videos and still cant do it right.
My otherq question- unrelated to grooming:
I want my daughter to begin riding properly. I bought a nice helmet, breeches, and boots for christmas. Is it possible for her to ride effectively in my english saddle if i jsut get child stirrup leathers? She rides in it fine without stirrups at all, but just wondering what you all think of the idea? I ride in a 17" saddle. She is 6 and tiny, but seems to feel fine in it.
Thanks in advance
