Jumpers yes, hunters no. I do trim my horses' tails though (if needed), I just do it in a way to make it look natural, not banged.

I did practice, still took me 2 hours to get her mane done. I guess I'll keep practicing...

I cut mine straight across couple days before the show. While I don't think it looks much fuller still it looks better than it used to be.
