tail wrap

I bought a tail wrap the other day to wrap up Ella's dock so that the shorter hairs here could grow in, only I have never used one before and am not sure how to put it on. It is a long piece with ties on one end. I wrapped it on yesterday, but it came off within the first 10 minutes. Sooo, maybe I had it right, but not tight enough??? Does anyone have a picture of their horse's tail in a wrap that you could share please?

It's supposed to be tied below the tail bone.

I think the correct way to put one of those in is to braid the tail. Put the tail in the bag and then tie the ties together. I assume that you would have to put the tiees through the braid.

Ok, thanks. It's not an actual bag, it's just a long scarf-like wrap with short ties on one end. I'll try wrapping it like I did before, tighter and with the ties below the tail bone. Thanks!

The way I was always taught to keep them up was wrap around twice at the top then tuck some hair from the tail up and wrap around the hairs
( its very hard to describe without picks) and then continue wrapping and tie. I don't no if this makes sense but if not pm me and ill try and take some photos so it makes sense
