They will put their tails up naturally. For the show industry people do things to facilitate the tail being up, but you can see even part Saddlebreds, like my Georgian Grande, will often lift their tails upright.
I never have a camera when they do it (I never have a camera with me when they don't do it
), but someone who was watching them run around one day sent me a picture with my then filly's tail almost upright. Someday I might have a camera and manage to catch a photo while she has it up like a flagpole. She does most times when she's running around, but doesn't keep it up constantly whereas her older cousin almost never does it.
Some horses just like doing it.
