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'm not showing, so I don't think that would really matter.... just ugh... I tried to run a frenchie through it the other day and it didn't stay.

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.

You couls always roach it and start over? Then when it grows out, pull it some to thin it out.

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.

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