I know in showmanship they like short pulled manes with banding or sometimes just nice neat pulled manes. Are you going to a school show? if you are then your mane shouldn't be a big deal. If it's a breed show of some kind you can always check your rule book for grooming requirments. Another thing you can do is call the show manager and see if he/she has any suggestions for how you can style her mane. Hope I helped

Sorry everyone I merged all the posts that the OP started on this subject and must have messed up. Her opening post got sent to the middle somehow. Its my day to mess up I guess

Leave it long, just band it. As long as it's neat and tidy, points shouldn't be deducted.
