I hate pulling manes.
If you are not needing to thin her mane in order for it to lay properly, and have a few weeks before a show. I just get some thinning scissors and cut the mane in layers. The trick is to try it out on a horse you don't show first in case of any mistakes, and do it a few weeks before the show so it can look more natural.
I prefer the thinning scissors when I go to the local shows. Big shows may be another deal.

I had my mare's mane pulled for the first time last week . And she took it like a champ . BUT it was right after she was worked for about 2-3 hours and it just came right out without a problem .

Make sure you don't take too much hair at one time.

Use the humane pulling comb that is more like scissors than anything.
