Hi, I was wondering for In-hand classes, such as young stock 3 years and under would a hogged mane be marked down, or perhaps in a mountain and moorland in hand class? In other words does your horse have to have a plaited mane or just a mane to be placed successfully ? He is a part bred newforest gelding. Thankyou
For M&M he really needs to have a mane, youngstock he wouldn't be placed well with a hogged mane. They need to look like they've just been tidied up after living n the moorlands for years, as in full feathers, whiskers mane etc. Any trimming needs to be subtle. You shouldn't be able to tell you've done anything. Good luck!

I love you my beautiful girl.
As your pony is a part bred it should be plaited . M&M classes are for pure breeds only even at local level. Some do unregistered classes but the pony might not be registered but still should be a full bred.
