Absolutely you can. I can't stand those tail wraps. I find they are not only ugly but useless. For starters leave your horse's tail alone. Do not brush it, do not put anything it in (such as bags). Wash it, clean it and the most you should ever do is hand pick the tail. NEVER brush it. Maybe once a month take all the knots out by hand but nothing else. Biggest mistake made by people is to brush knots out as you rip tail that's taken years to grow. Regularly put conditioner or showsheen to keep it stronger and help it stay tangle free and that's it.
I know some draft horse breeders and showers will condition and vet wraps it for months at a time to completely protect it which I must say I've seen miracles come out of these things BUT I also think its a lot of work to keep it dry and clean and redoing it when required.
Hope you consider it.
