Long mane...
 
What should I do with it? I'm doing both halter and showmanship.




A) Leave it down

(Her mane actually looks a lot shorter in this picture than it actually is)

B) Thick bands

C) French braid

D) Long hunter braids

E) Scalloped braids

Are you dressing to show western or english as that will greatly effect my vote :)

I'll be dressed Western, but she'll be wearing a gaited-style halter and it's an open class.

Down looks much better.

For a long mane in showmanship, leave it down and make it shine. ;-)

The braided bands look really nice.
I don't know anything about that kind of showing though, I just think it looks pretty and you've given me a new idea for my boy's lushes long mane. I'm bored with doing a running braid every time I show him.
