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!! :) :)
