Does this mean all of us engrish riderz should roach our horses manes, because the OP finds it fugly? My mare TB canadian X has a lovely...er HORRIBLE LONG AND THICK NASTY MANE. Going to go cut it off, brb folks.:twisted:

Seriously though, I do a running braid to keep her neat for showing (dressage), she has a lovely thick mane and tail, I wouldn't trade it for the world. And i'm sure she appreciates the extra fly protection.

I can not personally think of a single more repulsive eye sore on a show horse than a long mane. Well groomed or not, it will always look unkept to me.

Now, even if you only do schooling shows, a straight cut 4 inch conditioned mane just seams more respectful to the expected turnout.

Tails i understand but what is so great about a long mane to you?

Are you kidding?! LOLOLOLOL:rofl::rofl::rofl:
Long manes are what some breeds are EXPECTED to have.
If some fool told me to trim my horses mane because its more respectful, Id probably slap them.
NOT all horses are stock horses! Cut my arabs or saddlebreds mane and see what happens.

Please dont make such un-intelligent generalizations. I think a pulled mane looks stupid! Doesn't mean you should grow an nice pretty mane....

What is wrong with a long mane??? I mean- it keeps flies away, looks purty and suits my tomboy mare's attitude! I love long "disrespectful" manes!!! Its disrespectful to let a horse get bitten, or pull a horse's mane that doesn't like being pulled. I'm not against pulling a mane to thin it out if its too thick and unmanageble, or if you do compete regulally in disaplins that require short manes. But then again simply combing the mane makes it manageble and thins it a little and I've managed to braid up an unpulled mane and win tack and turnout(in a small school show admittedly but still) so... :cool:

Please note that the OP is no longer posting.

Also, I suspect the OP posted this to be inflammatory and provoke these sorts of responses. Let's not fall into that trap.
