I love my horses main and tail long and full, and I can still braid them for shows and stuff, I think its just about what the owner likes

I'm curious- What kind of braids do you do? I don't think you can braid traditional hunter braids with a long mane

I think it depends on the individual horse and person and what discipline they are in. Here are my neddies:

William:mane left to grow, only a foal so not doing anything

Buffy: hogged and pulled tail. She is ridden cob and working hunter pony.

Rolex(now pts): long mane and tail with long clipped bridlepath,used for showing

Orin (now pts) mane and tail pulled. Used for showjumping, eventing

Yeah, I tried, you CAN'T do traditional Hunter or Button braids with a long mane
