My friend went to appy world show in wp a few years ago she and everyone else but two horses had fake tails when the horses move I don't care how you put um in they were fake and you know it. I feel that when your showing your horse as someone else mentioned it has alot to do with your comformation and with a full tail it adds to the horse but if its fake isn't that making your horse into somthing its not Id rather see 20 appys with barley any tails jogging around the arena at least its real. Another reason people use fake tail is because with stock horses they are supossed to have a low tail set and when I boarded at a QH barn they were trying on different weight tails on a horse so his tail would be weighted down. I'm not saying that's wrong or right every breed does wierd stuff (arabs weighted reins)

If you don't use one at AQHA shows it makes you look inexperienced and out of place, so basicly you have to use one.

There are some horses that can compete at AQHA shows without fake ones, but they are few and far between. I remember waiting for a Trail class and hearing somebody mention that my mare's "fake" tail was too heavy (had more hair than needed). It was her real tail, and the two foals she has had have those huge tails as well. Some horses just have it, some don't. Another friend who has won two AQHA Amateur world champs competed at the World show and placed just a couple of years ago in multiple events (including showmanship) without putting a fake tail in or using hoof black. You can get it to work on occasion and with good care of the tail, just not often.

Oh, and I'm not against them at all. My gelding needs one, and has never stepped into the ring at an AQHA show without one.

I wasnt saying that all horses need one. We had a 3 yr old that had an absolutely beautiful tail. We didnt need to put one in him, his natural tail looked the same as those horses that had fake tails in.

I don't have to use a fake one on my Paint mare...her tail is HUGE.
I'll be getting one for my gelding though.

Fake tails are most common with quarter horses, paints, and appalosas . I don't know anything about the trends of other breeds ( I am a little breed prejudice, what can I say I like my quarters, and give a lot of credit to those who ride the more high spirited horses) Personally I like the look of an artificial tail whether its tapered or a blunt end it makes the horses end look much more muscular and its just pretty lol. A fake tail isn't required at any show that I am aware of. At all of the breed specific shows most horses will have fake tails and at the county I show at most QH and Paints will have a fake tail but it is not required anywhere.

This girl Knows what she is talking about, hehe, You look like a a sore thumb in a AQHA show, and at congress there anit nobody without one!
And it finishs off the horse and evens them out. A mimimal expense you have to pay at a AQHA show.

I borrowed a fake tail for the last show I went to, my horse has a really pathetic tail so it really helped, I think they look good.
