As stated at the end of the previous page, most people will want the front of the bridle path to begin about 1 fingers' width behind the ears, so this is where the clipping was stopped.  The yellow line is showing where the bridle path was stopped, NOT the finger. The finger is holding the horse's ear forward for a clearer photo.

Stop clipping a bridle path about one fingers' width behind the ears

For a finishing touch you can clip the sides of the bridle path from the outside edge of the mane inward toward the center. Do this from front to back on both sides. This will clean up any stray hairs and also cause the hair to grow back in a gentle peak with the tallest hairs in the middle of the bridle path.
