    Pulling the mane : problems

    So I have a gelding who is a hunter jumper and he absolutely hates it when I pull his mane. Is there another way to shorten his mane while it still looks like I pulled it?

    Use a thinning razor comb...combination pulling comb and sharp blade edge to cut not pull the hairs. Always work with cutting from the underside out...never outside {topside} in.

    they come in various styles but this is the kind I have and use...

    There is also a technique where you go through the motions of starting a "pull" then stop but keep the pressure on...hold it...the hair basically releases itself.
    Make sure you are only taking a few hairs at a time not a fistful.
    I can pull/snap a mane to length and thickness without using a actual pulling comb...the horse doesn't fuss because I'm not yanking a lot of hairs at once, only 3-5 strands at a time. It does take longer but without the fight...

    Good luck!

    Here you go, using this method I could pull my rescue mares mane, and at one time she wouldn't even let me comb it


    It really works, and when you get proficient it doesn't take long.
