For my horse (a TB) i have found great success in grooming his tail with Enfusium (a human hair spray conditioner) also you can wash with it, and it makes the tail silky soft and full. Dont use it all the time though, once or twice a week is enough. Also, like others have said, detangle with your hands :)

I have to say MTG and finger brushing work the best. My Arabian rubbed his tail in February and It had grown 6 inches in a few months, just for him to rub again in the same spot. Make sure to keep the actual fleshy part of the tail well moisturized. Dry skin can cause rubbing.

I'm another one not big on the bagging & brushing of tails. Find they have more hair loss with having their tail done all up in a braid, wrap or bag. Minimize combing/brushing out of tail,when you do start combing from bottom up.Conditioners or MTG apply to dock & roots of hair first & massage through hair from there.

I've heard MTG works wonders on hair growth. I personally have never tried it on the tail. Note: use gloves when applying it. It has a very strong sulfur smell that makes your skin smell all day regardless of how many times you wash them.

MTG can cause skin reactions for some. It gives me hives!
