Do you have any kind of detangler? I use the Cowboy Magic detangler and it works really well. Start at the bottom of his tail and work your way up with your fingers. It might take a while but hopefully it will work. Just be gentle and patient.

Also, just good ole conditioner, just put some globs on there and work it out, that has always worked wonders for me. :)

I also use Cowboy Magic- it really works. I would try that, & maybe some ShowSheen to make it even more less tangled.

I use show sheen, it works really, really well. I always found cowboy magic not to work very well at detangling, but that's just me.

Use Some detangler. I like cowboy magic or showsheen. You can also make your own my mixing:
1/4 cup fly spray
1/4 cup baby oil
1/4 cup hair conditioner
1/4 water (can be omited for a thicker mix, I usually do).


It works pretty good, and it is cheaper.

Hey there...How frustrating...Right before show.
I think all the methods above work wonders....the one brumby suggested is good and the oils hels but cn some times become gooy....But it will leave a nice shine...
The main thing to remember is to 1) pe as patient as you can, 2) like the others also mentioned start and the very very bottom...If your horse has a really long thick tail and a sort of nest at the bottom I would try to use a wide type brush or comb and work on t=little sections at a time...
I was an Event goom for a friend for a while when I did not have a horse to ride and had a similar siutaion happen...It took a long time to get the job done, I mean a long time...but eventualy with patience and care not to rip or pull to much it did become untangled and still looked excellent!
You'll be good to go with the suggestions above.....
