In this video I’ll show you how I thin a mane with thinning scissors rather than pulling it. This is a great method if you don’t like to pull horses mane or if you have a horse that doesn’t like it’s mane being pulled.
I love this method – it’s quick, it’s easy, it’s painless for both horse and human.
No matter whether you use scissors or pull to thin a mane, the hair is going to grow back. It’s a bit like waxing or shaving for us – but the difference is that with a horses mane, it’s not the first bit of regrowth that’s the problem. The regrowth of the hair from being a couple of centimetres long, to the full length of the mane is when it’s a problem if you’re plaiting. And whether you pull or cut like this you’ll still have the same issue.
So I like to use this method as I believe it’s kinder.
