i used to have the same problem with my old mare. She would rub and rub and rub, trying to get the top of her tail braided was a NIGHTMARE! Then a lady at one of the shows I went to told us about shaving and ever since then she had a lovely tidy, shaved tail. However ,if not done properly, it can look awful so make sure you don't take too much off :)
