How Much Should I Cut Off?
So, I've decided to show Nell in English this year, and show season is coming up quick. I have no idea how much of her mane I should cut off to be able to braid it! Also, her forelock is really long, and I have no idea what to do for that either!

I think it depends on what you'll be showing her in? Different braids require different lengths of hair. I will say though, that is probably the most BA Brown I've seen! She's gorgeous.

Haha thank you! These will be her first shows, so I was only planning on halter classes and English under saddle like a walk/trot/canter class. They're only tiny local shows.

Since her mane looks thick, I would suggest pulling it vs cutting it. I would leave her forelock, it looks fine to braid.

Here is a good video on how to gently pull a mane. You cut a long mane then slowly start pulling to get it short and even. I like my mane so the length is about the width of my hand :-) And yes, leave her forelock! Its beautiful and can be braided easily. I am going to be doing a how to braid video soon as i've been getting people bugging me lol. I have a nice way of doing the forelock so it looks neat and tucked without sticking up like a unicorn horn lol.

Don't cut it, pull it! Trust me, cutting it almost never turns out well! ;) Especially for braiding. :)
