Why? All it would do is dry out the hair. Plus, it would be very easily to burn him by accident

You are talking about a flat iron. Can you use it, yes. A horses tail is very coarse, so a higher heat may be needed to do the job. Be very careful not to accidently touch any skin, could result in a burn and probably a kick! Take small sections , going to take a lot of time. Might even want to apply a thermal protector (product) on the hair first.

I wouldn't do it because 1. It seems totally un-necessary and 2. It could damage their hair :)
