Alwaysbehind, it may be more of a country thing.
In the UK showing it is expected that the horses tail is pulled, working hunter pulled tails are expected. I've also seen the vast majority of showjumpers with pulled tails, a good number of dressage competitors and a lot of eventers with pulled tails.
RedTree- pulling tails doesnt hurt any more then pulling a mane would. Reeco stands and falls asleep when I do his tail.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
