Are they curls, or twists?

There twists and no matter how much you brush them they just curl bak up again!

If you want to just like temp cram them down egg whites act like a hair gel and hold things down.

Yes I have similar problems... Although if you did brush your horses tail on a regular bases maybe the curls will become less definate. Buy some de-frizz, and that conditions the tail and applys to the 'curls'. I would steer away from gel. Although hair spray may be suitable. :)

I reckonmend a good brush, that should keep them under control

I know what you mean with the twits. My 3 year olds tail does that. Makes it really difficult to brush his tail nicely. I find tho, most of the time showsheen does the trick in getting rid of them.

My stallion's tail ringlets also when not brushed regularly. Keep a show sheen or other hair polish brushed into it on a regular basis. I also keep his tail wrapped up unless showing, that keeps them away. Ringlets are sort of cute, but they can become dreads if you aren't careful!! :) :)
