This is Maggie Connolly with Hawthorne Stables, and we are going to go through how to pull a mane. In the jumper discipline, the hunter jumper discipline we actually pull a mane. There are some disciplines that allow a horse's mane to remain long. But in our discipline we pull a mane, and I am going to show you how we go ahead, and we do that. This is a mane pull comb. You can see it has the flat little teeth, and is made out of metal, and this actually has a little handle, which is harder, I mean which is easier in order to pull a mane. There are some that cut off here, but I found that the ones with the handle give you just that little extra added edge. And I will show you how this is used. What we first do is we grab the long hairs here, I am going to grab with my left hand, I am going to take the comb, and I am going to actually put it over the hairs. Then what I am going to do is I am going to fray the other hairs up, then I pull the comb up here, I am going to take these, I am going to wrap it around the comb, I am actually going to pull this out. I know it looks a little painful, but it is not. And that is how you pull a mane, this is Maggie Connolly with Hawthorne Stables.
