What do YOU do to your horse's mane?

I just wanna know what regimens and things you do to manes and tails to keep them nice. Products, tips and tricks for growth, shine, whatever!

I spray it with Aussie Leave-in Conditioner and brush it. I'm super happy because Lakota's mane has grown out since I got him and his mohawk(where they cut his bridle path to long)is almost starting to fall to the side. The conditioner leaves the hair really silky and soft and mosturized. I use it in his tail too and it helps to keep the tangles out.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I shampoo it and brush it. I give her a mohawk in the summer cause it gets so dang hot here and her mane is extremely thick.

Flash's mane used to refuse to lay on one side - so I would spray daily with Quic Braid and brush it to the side I wanted it on. Now I just brush it daily and spray it maybe once a week or so, and it all stays on the same side. In the summer I wash it with shampoo and conditioner.

I bush it a lot, my horses names are so wirely. Somtimes I put cute little bows and what not into their mane just to look pretty. My mare's mane is finally long enough to do something with but in the summer I cut it because she had so much crap in it and it was to long and hot.

Miracle groom and cowboy magic is what I like to us on the mane and tail. I haven't tried anything else yet.

Cowboy magic and brush it out. Sometimes ill braid a feather or two in for fun, but only for the day or it becomes a tangled mess.
