I have an exmoor x pony and I wanted to thin and pull his mane due to the amount of dead "ginger" mane he had. As it was so long I cut it with scissors to a length and pulled, It hasn't gone exactly to plan the mane parts in the middle and it extremely thick and different lengths. I've started keeping it in plaits to encourage it to stay on one side, but I don't know what to do about the thickness and length. I'm getting a solocomb to pull better than I can, what would be the best way to make it thinner and stay on one side. I am going hunting soon and need his mane either be able to be plaited or stay flat on his side. I will get a decent picture soon as I haven't taken any since I pulled it.
Thank you for your help
