This is one reason I like Fjords, the mane can be so fun! I seen dragons and castles, just so much variety!
Otherwise, if I was showing, it would depend on breed and the horse in particular. For example, a Canadian I would leave natural, maybe thin a bit with shears but no shortening. A QH I would likely pull (or just shorten with a solo comb). But like I said, it depends on the horse too, his personality might make me do something different.

PULL!!!! PULL PULL PULL! I'm really anal about manes and absolutely hate the blunt "curtain" look. The only time I don't pull is if the horse has a thin but long mane, then I razor it. Very very carefully.

What do you mean you chopped it all off? :(

What do you think that pic is of a pulled mane or a cut mane?

I always cut with scissors, and then cut upwards into the hair afterward. You can't tell it wasn't pulled, it's a lot faster, and my horse doesn't lose any mane thickness! The ONLY time I pull is if the mane is too thick. Otherwise I cut and no one's the wiser. ;)

Gah, I hate pulled and cut manes!! I love natural. I think short manes look disgusting, (no offense guys!). I would even rather a hogged mane over a pulled mane. :/

I agree :)

I love natural manes as well, but when you are competing, you probobly would want to go with a shorter, clean, even, thinner mane so that you can braid - makes the braiding allot easier.

It's hard to button braid a natural, long mane for a Dressage Show or for a Hunter/Jumper show.

If you aren't required to braid, then by all means :) I do agree, natural manes are lovely.

I cut. I have never pulled a mane...I don't have the patience. I honestly don't think anyone ever notices because they always comment how it looks good. I've never even confessed to my trainer I cut. I'm a closet cutter. And I have to disagree with you FireEyes...my horse honestly does look better with a short mane. I would really have to dig to find some pics of him with a long mane...but I might try to show you.
