Pulled mane is growing out - ways to make it look "natural"?

Backstory: I pulled my TB's mane for some in-hand classes in the fall, but he's not a show horse and I don't plan on it being pulled again. She has grown 4-5 inches of mane since August, and while I am happy with the length of her mane, is there a way to make it look more natural, rather than just a super overgrown pulled mane?

Thank you!

Not really :\ It'll look even more strange if you cut it into a natural shape I think. Just let it grow, the hair will sort itself out.

I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row

Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head

Take hair cutting shears (or a razor) and go with the grain of the hair, not against it. It will thin the bottoms making it look less straight and even.
