    thats what I thought, but why so much of it? All the bridle paths I've seen are only a little bit behidn the ears.

    i'm not sure why they do so much of it, I think its an arab thing, most nice nice arabians you will see have about half there mane shaved off. My guess is its to show off there neck.

    It's quite a common practice in the Arabian world, especially those in the show circuit.
    I usually give mine a longer bridle path than found on most horses but not as much as what Khal has. I love mane to much to shave that much of it off. Lol

    When you show Arabians judges always look for a nice long, clean neck and by clipping that much of the mane off, it makes it look longer, cleaner, and more refined, especially in the throat latch area, when they are set up in the halter or the bridle.

    A few years ago you'd see most Arabians shaved halfway down their necks, but it's becoming less of a trend now and most are only going about as far as Khal's, if not a little shorter.
    It is against AHA/CAHR rules to show an Arabian with fake mane or tails so most are beginning to leave most of it on, now. Which I much prefer! :)
