I don't use scissors, but use shears instead. I tried traditional pull and doesn't matter what I do my qh's mane looks terrible (unlike my paint's mane). So last time I used trimmer under the mane to thin it and then shears to cut it even. Looks very nice - much better than pulled!

This is the finished product!(:
I pulled it a little shorter, then just upcut it to make it look a little neater but still natural

Yeah, I would definitely pull again. I think more on the top, and just a little in the middle, and some on the bottom. I HATE it when a mane is not pulled! Lol!

Hello! I wish I had a horse of my own.... I am working hard to earn $1500 this year though! There just doesn't seem to be very many good horses on the market though......

Personaly I think it does look cut and you may struggle to braid it.

jody, cut manes end up with spikey bits stickking out of the plaits at odd places..

Now a correctly pulled mane I can plait up absolutly immaculately in 15mins flat (and that is sewing them in)
A mane that has been chopped takes forever as wayward pieces of short hair pop out at odd intervals and manes end up looking spikey and needing lots and lots of gel to hold in place.

It looks cut in the picture, but if you were up close it doesn't look cut.
I did an upcut, just to trim down the little pieces that were too long.
I didn't cut straight across.
On thursday I'm going to braid it and see what it's like.
I'm a very slow braider xD hahah
