Question Hot oil???

I want to use the hot oil treatments on my thoroughbreds tail. I'm a tail obsesser. I just need to know how to use it. Do you wash the hair first? How long do you leave it in? How often do you use it? Do you do anything extra to keep your horses tail nice? My horse was just bred and I'm taking her to the royal next year. So I want a nice tail.

:) thanks in advance :)

Hot oil is a godsend. I have a brown horse with a black tail. I always used to look enviously at the other people at shows who had those mirror-shiny black tails, and no matter how I tried I could NOT get it to happen. Clean, yes. Shiny? Nope! I used show sheen, Mr. Preen, anything I could try.

Then hot oil came along and wow-ee!

I don't know how others do it but this is my way. I shampoo'd the tail, realllly thoroughly. Right down to the dock and scrubbing it. Wash that out, then conditioner, again right to the dock. Leave in for a few minutes and wash out, really thoroughly.

Then I either mixed the oil with a little water in a bucket or in a spray bottle. Not too much oil as if there is too much, dirt will stick. I just sprayed/sponged it all the way through, right to the dock, and finger combed it all the way through the tail. I then let my horse graze while it dries and I finger pick all the knots out. Once dry, I plait it and put a tail bag on for the night.

In the morning, unplait last, brush through and give another spray with the oil/water mixture.

I also use the oil/water mix as a grooming spray on the coat.
