^ Agreed, :)
But usually what I do with my horses tail, is I layer it kind of, and trim it, Like I take the tail and go close to the butt and cut in a slant, kind of like doing angled bangs for people ! It looks really nice when they move imo :)
( makes it harder when you want to braid etc though)
But I would get some spray in detangler and conditioner, with some stuff that you can spray which makes the horse shinyer :)
But usually the detangler and conditioner leave in spray look great.
As said above you don't want to wash the tail to often
