i like to take some cowboy magic's rosewater shampoo, and add baking soda to make a paste. I carefully comb it into the tail, wait 5 or 10 minutes (depending on how bad the tail is), then rinse with distilled vinegar. Then I wash again with the rosewater shampoo, rinse with water, then condition. This has helped bring my horse's green/brown tail back to a nearly platinum color.
To help keep the tail clean, I will braid it, tie it up in half with a bit of twine, and wrap with vet wrap. In the summer, I make sure to coat him pretty well with fly spray.
Hope this helps!
