RE: bridle path

Terri ... we leave our horses' manes natural and don't trim bridle paths ...
I've seen as much as half of the horse's mane shaved off in the Class A show
ring horses ... originally, bridle paths were put on horses so the cowboys
could distinguish which ones were "broke" and which ones weren't when they
selected their mounts for the day's ranch work ... I believe the bridle path
issue with Arabian horses is one of personal preference

happy trails

Subject: RC: bridle path

While we are on the subject of hair, I have a question
about bridle paths.  Since I am just now learning the
Arab ways and politically correct miscellanous ways
associated with Arabs, I have a question.  Do you all
trim bridle paths on Arabs?  I have a gut feeling the
answer is no.  Always did on the OTHER trails horses
that we have, but seems to me like when I see an
Arabian he/she is al la naturalle.  I just know that
when I put her bridle on she gets disgusted with me
when I get her long hair tangled up in it and it seems
like a bridle path is the answer, HOWEVER, I don't
want her to be some geek or freak o'nature out there
on the trail because my girl is the only Arab with a
bridle path.  So, I want the truth here, spare me my
(her) feelings.  LOL  Thanks!
