This is just a question driven by complete curiosity. It's a rainy Sunday and I'm a bit bored so was looking at various horse sales videos. I came across a HUS class, some regional class I think, and there was a gorgeous grey gelding but his tail extension seemed a bit too heavy. It just didn't move as naturally as a real tail or some of the others in the class using extensions.
So I was just wondering, is it a disadvantage to NOT use one? He was a pretty mover, at least in my uneducated opinion, but because the extension just seemed too heavy, it was a bit distracting...again, to my uneducated eye.
I'm seriously just curious.
