- - How Short?? (http://www.horseforum.com/horse-showmanship/how-short-62651/)
How short should his mane be? I can upload a picture if you want, but I show in basicly everything pleasure except halter (SMS, HUS, Equi, WP, WH, trail)
you mean to band it? I've always heard that anywhere from 3-5 inches, personal preference, is acceptable. However, I also show in reining so I leave my horses' manes and tails long. When I show and I want to band, I do the basket weave. It takes a while, but it looks good and I always get a few compliments! Just a tip for if you want to keep his/her mane long. Love your horse, btw, gorgeous!
here's a few links to the basket weave to show you what it looks like.

you can also just google it if you want. Good luck!
for WP, manes have to be real short. i would say to take an inch off, just to be safe.
It should be 3"-4" long at the most. You'll need to cut off at least half of the current length.

I use my hand. I put my hand flat on his neck and cut it that length.
