Im in a big buissness to deal with that too!! My horse bassi and now Straumur my stallion are both getting really dry mane and tail. The reson is don't use too much effol and conditioner and this made things. Wen the mane and tail are that dry just use and brush and no effol or things. Take the horse for a bath several times and use just shampoo and then and wash it really well out., and never too much of this. Leave the hair fresh and untouched outside if you can and you will see the diffrence

A lot of great suggestions have been posted already. I just want to add: please remember to rinse out your horse's tail very thoroughly after shampooing. Shampoo residue can dry out the mane and tail even more. You can use M-T-G (search at equine online store) to treat dandruff, if persistent. Also used with good results: go to your local drug store (Walgreens or such) and look for hair products created for Afro-Americans. There are some good natural conditioning products containing olive oil etc. you can choose from. Give it a try!
