The most traditional ways of braiding tails for show are not fishtail braids, i think girls call them mermaid braid's now. They are essentially a french braid down the center of a tail.

This vid is on how to do the main part of the tail:

This one is how to do the end/pinwheel them:

Braiding was always my favorite part of showing hunt seat. I have an aunt that is a hair stylist that taught me early and I got pretty good at it, was a bonus as a kid to make a bit of cash braiding for others. Tails, I love the look of an inside-out herringbone braid, provided it is done well.
