    I bet if the same horse that won went into the ring with out a fake tail they would still win.

    I think this is kind of a chicken and egg thing.

    Does the fake tail help them win, or are the winning people just using fake tails?

    I think you hit it right on the head there. The people winning would have one anyway. If it was so close when it comes down to the last 2. Take them out put them in front of a different judge and the odder could be reversed.

    Isn't that the truth.

    It was interesting to watch the big appy show on line a bit back. The classes were placed under all four judges and some classes the placings were not even close from judge to judge. In the one halter class the horse that won under the one judge did not get anything under the other three judges.
    In one halter class there was one horse that had a long natural mane and a natural tail and it was placing fine.

    That is why they use so many judges on the larger shows. Then they normally drop the high and low and then place the horses. At the NRHA Futurity there are 6 judges. 5 Ring judges and 1 bit judge. They then drop the high and low and add the other 3 together to get the placings. This is done over 2 runs added together then a clean slate finals.

    Yeah, that's it. I'm jealous. Poor, poor, pitiful me! Won't someone pat me on the head and tell me I'm super speshul and wunnerful? I'm feeling sensitive. Sniff....

    I hear ya about the judges. The Arabian Nationals also uses multiple judges for the halter classes. Some of the placings by different judges are just whacked!

    Not whacked. Just proves you are paying for the opinion of a person.
