I just do those braids during his work. Then I take them out and he's fine the rest of the time. I can't leave them in because he will put out a braid (and has). His mane is thick enough and long enough to need that extra little bit of care, but I love it.

try them higher up, running near the neckline, same as you would do a french braid on your head, so it on his neck. Start same as you have done with your braid, just pull it all the time closer to the neck, dont make it too tight, as that will be uncomfortable for the horse when he starts bending the neck, but the braid will adjust itself anyway.. for short manes its difficult, as they will fall out after some work, but these long thick manes are perfect for neat running braids near their necks :)

Do what you need to do. It will grow back, if you end up thinking you don't like it pulled. It's a human thing, not a horse thing. I've played beauty parlor in the past with my horses, some I liked, some I didn't. Horse didn't seem to care either way and it all grew back. I currently roach my percheron's mane an dlove it. Some people act like it is taboo. I think she looks fabulous! It shows off her neck. My pinto I have thought of pulling because her mane hair is half 'baby fine' and half curly course (she is part fresian)....so it is always tangled. Haven't done it yet, but may.
