Clip a bridle path and braid it down until it's trained?

It's rubbed off for that section there. It it was one of those nasty 2 sided manes, I'd just band it down... but it's rubbed...

I can see it's rubbed, but it looks long enough to braid down to grow out. If it was me, I'd also trim the longer part til it all matched.

I wouldn't think a french braid would work but I used to pull my hunter horses manes that short to do button braids, so I know I could do several short braids down her neck and make them stick.

Ah. I guess that's a possibility. They'll probably stick straight up tho... lol.

Is your horse rubbing it off? Or is it caused by a blanket e.t.c? I like the product MTG it has stopped one of my horses who used to try and rub his tail out.

Fluffy!
I would pull it so it's all roughly the same length and then just leave it alone to grow out.
