Should i band the mane?

I have a local open show coming up Sunday I am doing a color class, western pleasure classes and a ranch trail class. I have a morgan gelding with a long mane I am not going to cut, since its a local show should I do the diamond braid? Or leave it down? Can't decide please help

I'd leave it down. Make sure it's clean, tangle-free, and very lightly gel or hairspray down any frizzies on the crest for a clean look. Good luck!

I am curious what color your Morgan is, to make you eligible for a color class.

Thanks he is body clipped so he looks like this 1209112506_01.jpg
and the rules said any color horse is acceptable so I thought i'd enter for the fun of it.

I second this, I would not band a mane for western classes unless it is pulled, and I certainly would not braid. That's more of and English thing, to be honest! I've always preferred a natural but clean mane for western shows, even though pulled and banded is the norm for WP, equitation, halter and trail. Possibly a few others? Ranch horse classes are nearly always mane down and natural.

Cute horse, as well!

This is trending in my area for horses with long manes in western classes

Color classes to me are usually paint/appy. What is different from the color class and a regular class?
