I like the picture, but the horse's mane goes all the way up their head and in between their ears.

not necessarily! many saddlebred owners shave the mane at the top of the neck, right before the crown of the head (called the bridle path, where the bridle goes across the top of the head). it's so the head and neck look elegant in the show ring!

Well, according to nature they're supposed to have mane there.

Correct! But this is a show horse, whose mane has been modified a bit :)
