what weight of tail to use?

So Im going to buy April a fake tail and im trying to figure out what weight to buy. Chloes tail is a half a pound which is good for her but not in April. I can get 1lb, 1.25lb, 1.5lb, and 2lb. She has a thicker tail on top but the length just isnt where I like it for showing. I attached a couple pics from this spring... thanks!!!

Ew... no offense, but fake tails are hideous imo. Your horse has a beautiful tail just the way she is. I'd leave it au naturale.

I think the 1 lb would be fine.

A 1lb tail should be fine with your horse. Remember when using tails, less is more unless your horse does not pack his natural tail well. It looks like she packs her tail okay. The 1lb size is our most popular. We make custom tails of all kinds. If she still doesnt hold her tail well, you can now put a weight in the tail instead of using more hair. This gives a more natural look. A very large tail will tend to get stuck in their hing legs.

Thanks guys!!! I was thinking around the 1-1.5 range but just wasnt sure what to go with.

Dvlgh- is putting weights in tails breed show legal? I know that the tail has to be hair to hair attachment but I havent looked into the weights.

I agree with the one pound tail. Your horse has a pretty nice tail as it is so I think that is all you will need.
