Some of the horses at the barn always have their tails looking "just brushed". Do you know what conditioner (or whatever) works like that? They do brush their tails but I know they haven't brushed them just before I get there.
Oooooh, I always use show sheen, just brush the tail really well first, then spray in and make sure it gets all over the tail, and it will make the tail really shiny, straight, smooth, and dirt resistant.
It works wonders for me and is a real time-saver.
I usually get my horses tail wet and condition it with some mane and tail then rinse it out. (make sure you brush your horses tail before you start to condition) Then I let it dry on its own without brushing it. Once it is completly dry I brush starting at the bottom and work my way up.
Comanche's tail looks full at the end and it last for a few days. But I also brush his tail everyday.
"A good rider can hear his horse speak to him. A great rider can hear his horse whisper."
I have been using Mane and Tail and I leave it in (cause it says you can on the bottle). It works nice on her mane but not really her tail. I think it also isn't looking nice because her tail got chewed up by another horse so at the bottom it's all "rag-ly" so maybe that makes it get tangled easily. I also brush her mane and tail (almost) everyday too.
I use human shampoo and conditioner and I brush the tail when it is wet(from the bottom to the top) and has tons of conditioner in it and then I rinse and towel dry the tail and then use show sheen or this home made mixture (1/3 of each: conditioner(any human one), baby oil and the yellow mouth wash) and let it air dry from there
