    mane pulling question

    I have pulled manes before but it has been forever ago. My mare has a super thick long mane but I want to pull it bc she sweats really bad under it. I have tried braiding it but she gets irritated when I try taking them out I would rather just pull it. How long should it be left and how thick approx.

    How long you want it depends on what discipline you do. I believe the lengths are different for different realms of showing.

    The normal length is about four inches or approximately the width of your hand. The mane should be an in between thickness, and the thickness should remain the same throughout the whole mane.
