Fake Tail ?
Can someone explain to me the point of a fake tail ? I've never shown a horse with one but my friends do . I've seen a mare who had such a short tail that when they had put the fake tail in, it hung awkwardly to the side and was OBVIOUS . But what's the point ?

It just gives you the complete picture. I personally think they're silly, and when they aren't put in correctly they just look bad. It's just the trend right now. People like seeing that long full tail in the show ring. It does absolutely nothing to help the horse's performance, they are entirely cosmetic.

I'm with Ink, they look silly! I'm old school and like the QH to have tails no longer than their hocks, makes 'em look better to me. I hate seeing tails drag the ground, not very pretty in my book! But to each their own.

Fake tails are gorgeous. I love them. I get so excited to put it in for breed shows. :)

I agree, if not put in properly, they look ridiculous.

But, when put in how they should be, in the right area, and length, they really finish off your look.

When I rode in the hunt world I thought the fake tails looked pretty silly but after entering the breed circuit, I have really gotten to where I like a well fitted fake tail. I think it makes a big difference...

False tails are fantastic when put in correctly.

There is different weights & attachments with false tails,besides Knowing how to put them in correctly that makes a big difference:D. Depends on how much tail you has to work with in the first place,to know the size/weight of tail that looks best. The way they attach makes a big difference too, in how they blend with your horses natural tail & how they move.Some move more freely/natural & with your horses own tail.
I personally think they look nice if you use a quality tail & put it in correctly:wink:

They look like someone put a broom on the horse's butt. Makes about as much sense as a girl with falsies, or a guy sticking a cucumber in his pants. :shock:

Don't worry, I got my false eyelashes to match my horse's fake tail. We can sweep the floors together. lol
