You can try conditioners and trying to work it out. I take the easy way out. I take a sharp knife and slice through the knots. It cuts the hair that is holding the others but not the others. You do lose a little but not that much.

I like either the Cowboy Magic or MTG. Put on some good music, use your fingers and enjoy some bonding time with your horse!

IMO I would just cut it to the length of the shortest hairs. I did that with a gelding who had parts of his mane about that long. Except with him I just hogged it, your's you could probably trim it short. This way you get all the hair the same length growing out. The gelding's mane was four inches or so this spring, if he doesn't get all tangled or rub it out at his current home, he should have just as much as he did and more by this fall/ winter.

I use the ShowSheen detangler. It works miracles! My boy has a very thick mane but ShowSheen make it easy to comb out.
