Flip up a horses mane with a comb and get the longer strands off one by one, then yank off about 2. If there's more, don't worry. To get the horses mane straight, pull 2 strands once a day so the poor horse won't get sore


To pull the horses mane you should have a metal pulling comb. Then while holding the long hairs of the mane in your hand backcomb all of the shorter hairs until you only have the longer hairs left. Wrap the longer hairs around the comb and yank downwards quickly to remove them. Do this to the whole mane to get an even look. If the mane is thin but long you may not wish to pull the mane, instead you can use a type of mane trimming cone, a good version of this product is the Solo-Comb. If you keep the mane kept pulled it makes the job much more easy and quick than having to do it all at once.
