Roaching His Mane!

Do you think he would look good with a roached mane? Not forever I don't think I just wanted to start over with his mane because its thinner and thicker in different areas and I wanted to grow it out at french braiding length! Ohh, and is a frenchbraid aloud in the show jumping arena!!!!!

Are you saying that because you just like a long mane and tail? Cause I am planning on growing it back out with MTG right after I hog him!

I definitely like long manes and tails, but I don't think he'd look that good with a roach. (Of course the people that love roached manes will disagree!).

Is there a reason you are wanting to cut it off?

Yeah! It is extremely thick, and extreely thin, in different ares and has a false non-healthy dullness to it! And I literally want to give it a new beginning! I've done it for other horses and now their manes look beautiful with a nice healthy luster! And I figure if I use MTG on it that not only will it speed up growing but, get it longer, shinier, and of course help with his dandruff problem! Not to mention I live in the middle of the desert and he gets extremely hot!

By the way do you know if a french(running) braid is legal in the show jumping arena!

I don't show, but there are others here that do so I bet they can answer the question.

If you're going to do it do it know, so that it'll be grown out by next season. Personally, I think roaching looks bad on every horse, but it's probably easier to just start from scratch than try to grow out certain parts of his mane. Good Luck!

P.S.
A running braid is only allowed in Dressage shows, for jumping you have to hunt braids (I know, I hate those tedious braids too, we should make a running braid fashionable in jumping so they make it legal! Haha)
