Those prices are good Have to keep them in mind. I have a black extension with grommet style attachment. Like it it blends well & moves more natural than some i've seen with other attachments.

Well you might think its nonsense, but if you want to be competitive and actually have a chance of placing then you have to display a pretty picture. Doesn't matter how well trained your horse is, if it has dental floss for a tail.....it will be noticed, whether you like it or not....also if you have a horse that wrings its tail, and many horses just do it for the sake of doing it, a false tail can keep a tail from become a distraction in the pen. My horse (his sire and his brothers) all just flick and wring their tails around.....I'm definitely putting in a false tail to quiet it down when I show........sure is better than injecting the dock and having a limp fish tail.......so what you consider to be 'nonsense' is actually quite smart show sense.

Some horses also have naturally thin tails (like Appys!) and adding tail extensions can improve the balance between their front and hind end aesthetically, as well as make their confo look better!

I got talked into showing one of my horses at the county fair once by a more than encouraging friend. I have a big, bay roan mare that I always just rode on the ranch. Her tail always got tangled in the brush when I rode her, and I used her so much, that I got sick and tired of tying a buckaroo knot in her tail. So I cut it off about ten inches below the bone. Then made a bunch of shoo flys. But anyways, I showed her in a halter class a just a county fair and got dead last. The judge said if she had a longer tail I would of won the class, but she didn't have the halter tail, nor a short chopped off mane. That's all I ever got of the show horse world lol. Tails do a lot for first impresssions in a horse show. They can even help cover up minor conformation flaws. If you want to be competitive, the look has a lot to do with it.

not surprised by comment typically spoken from someone that does not show competitively,but has to take a jab at us that do.
