There are numerous things that help. Baby oil, or spray in some Showsheen to detangle. Just be sure and take your time and try to get the knots out by hand vs cutting them. I take small 2 inch sections and go section by section

I like using a round brush with soft bristles and showsheen and work through it slowly. Athough, since I brush them just about every day I never really have to do much, both my horses tails stay pretty knot free. After you work through it well once I would suggest keep brushing it so it doesn't just knot back up. Then you don't have to worry about pulling out their tail whever you do for braiding or whatever.

It will take some time no matter what you do. But you could put some detangler, baby oil, showsheen, or you could just keep brushing. If it's really, really knotty then you could soak it in detangler stuff

The showsheen should help. The baby oil will make more dirt stick to it and make it harder over time to keep it untangled. Make sure that you brush it from the bottom and work your way to the top so it doesn't rip the hair out. After you work through it I would suggest keeping it conditioned and brushed regularly, and then spray some show sheen in it once a week to keep it that way. Good luck!

I would shampoo and condition the tail first. Wait for it to dry, spray it with Show Sheen, put Cowboy Magic in it, and then try getting the knots out. It'll be MUCH easier.

'Vetrolin' Shine Spray!!!! The most amazing stuff in the world.

It's all I use on my horses. It might just be my horse but I've found that if I use show sheen or cowboy magic his tail falls out (or the hairs break off) a lot more. Plus, vetrolin smells really good! =D

And braiding it once it's detangled helps a lot.
