- - cutting mane
|bgood400 ||02-17-2009 07:02 PM |
I know some people are really against cutting a horses mane but I don't really understand why? I show AQHA and we cut our horses manes all the time for shows. Is it just other disiplines that doesnt beleive in cutting a horses mane?
This is how I do my horses mane for shows: http://equisearch.com/library/graphics/banding.jpg

Many people love a roached mane. I trim off the straggly ends on Vidas and cut her bridle path in the spring and summer. I also cut her forelock out of her eyes every fall after fly season. I get teased about doing it but I don't care :-P

See :lol: They have grown out some and will be back to almost her nose by mid summer. I just like to see her eyes and if there are no flys I figure she likes it too

My horse's mane is very thick and fairly long. i have to clip his bridle path literallly every few weeks or more frequently because of the rate it grows back in so fast. like itll grow fully in about an inch in less than a month O.O...yet i have to work on his tail http://photos-d.ak.fbcdn.net/photos-...79043_5938.jpg

I think it depends on the horse. My Dun QH has a short neck and his mane just looks silly long so I cut mine. I show him at open shows and stuff so I guess its more proper.
I'm huge into reining tho as well and there is nothing prettier then a horse with a goregous long well groomed mane. I think palominos look best with long manes. There is so fine and straight.
I have probably a stupid question about pulling. I always pull my horses mane but I don't think I'm doing it right. I take the longest hair, few at a time and yank them out in a downward tug and the hairs come out at the roots. So my question is i get a thinner mane but not shorter. then I have to cut it to the length i desire. Is that what happens or I am doing something wrong?

the mane looks great, i luck out and just make sure mine is long enough to braid.

i would say its a personal opinion on what you like. thats one reasons i love true apps. the short mane and tail. but on my mustang it looks better longer in my opinion... gives him a bit of a more wild look :D
A reining pattern just would not be complete without all that mane and tail flying around to accent the movements!
