    I have seen & heard more of people leaving their horses mane long,but agree they better have what it takes before trying to go against the norm I know one yearling filly that was shown on our circuit last year & at WS she had a long mane. She won over 100 APHA points & a top 10 placing at WS. She was shown in Halter & IHT

    Yeah I show my Paint with a long mane, in both English and western classes. He has a REALLY long neck and it helps even it out, IMO. He also has an awesome, super (I mean SUPER) thick mane; its better than perfect I think haha (Not that I'm biased or anything ;) ). If need be I scallop braid, French braid, or even diamond braid it for shows. I also like to keep it long because it helps his skin in the summer. He has very sensitive skin and it burns easily. The long mane helps protect it.

    I would trim it a few inches to add thickness to the end and help show off her neck... Plus more hair means it looks like your moving more :)

    Just info...here is the appearance info from the APHA rulebook.

    1. Appearance of the exhibitor should be neat, clean and appropriate
    Western wear must be worn.
    2. Appearance of Horse: The horse should appear fit and well conditioned.
    The hair coat should be clean and well brushed. The mane and tail
    Should be clean and tangle free. The mane may be banded or braided,
    But it is not mandatory. It is acceptable to roach the mane but the forelock
    And tuft over the withers should be left. The bridle path, eyebrows
    And long hairs on the head and legs should be clipped, except where
    Government regulations prohibit. The inside of the ears may be clipped.
    Hooves should be properly trimmed and if shod, the shoes should fit
    Correctly and clinches should be neat. Hooves should be clean and may
    Be painted black, brown or clear, with hoof dressing, or be shown naturally.
    Tack should fit properly and be neat, clean and in good repair.
