How to get a Pretty Tail

Want a more beautiful tail on your horse? There's more than one way to get the effect you're after.

It's common now at horse shows to see tails that are so long, so full, and so perfect that they don't look real. Welcome to the wonderful world of the tail extension, the equine equivalent of a hair weave. If you're more inclined to the real deal, there are steps you can take to maximize your horse's natural tail. A good diet, plus cleaning, conditioning, and gently detangling the tail is the place to start. Grooming expert Susan Harris offers another suggestion.

"You may want to protect the very long hair by keeping the tail in a braid, maybe covering the tail braid with a tail sack or a tail sock, and this doesn't make it grow longer, but it stops it from getting caught on things and breaking off hairs. You'd be surprised how much hair horses lose."
