Honestly, just do a search on here, there are tons of threads about braids. I'm sure there are horses with similiar tails being discussed on those.

Get it really really wet and pull very tight, those tails take strength, not talent. If you can braid most tails, then try, once you get down a bit you don't have to pull quite so hard. It's just about strong hands, the hair looks plenty long to wrap around the bone, so just pull, pull, pull!

Keep it wrapped with vetwrap on the top so that it can be grown without getting rubbed off
