Go ahead and leave it long. I am seeing more and more of it in local and smaller breed shows. As a matter of fact, my friend just won Aged Mare Halter Class in a huge Open show in March and she left her mare's mane long and unbraided. There were over 35 horses in her class. Just make sure the mane is clean, trimmed and shaped nicely, and add some sheen to make it glisten.
