If I did not cut my horses tail I am not sure how long it would get. I cut off about 4-5 inch every 5-6 weeks depending on what is going on and if I am showing. I like the tail a few inch above the fetlock.

Beautiful animal though.
That was my thought too.



I am still trying to figure out why there is a thread in the western riding section that has a title about Hunter under saddle.

Err...because I was thinking AQHA HUS = AQHA = Western.

Sorry about that guys...

Oh...and I do know that AQHA doesn't automatically equal Western. I just made a silly mistake.

Riley fell asleep with his tail in his water bucket over the winter, it froze and he yanked a bunch of it out so it's really straggly now.

I actually was never a fan of the fake tail but I've gotten to where I really like the look... I geuss it's all a matter of personal preference? Here's photos of Ri real and fake...

BTW, I thought I'd mention that my horse has NO tail. The bottom three vertebra of his tail broke off when he was about nine months old. We think one of the other babies stepped on it. And so he is what I like to call "folically challenged". We have to work extra hard to make it look like he has a tail. Poor thing. So some of what you might be seeing in my avatar isn't so much the "fake" part as where I've teased the hair to give it body. I do the same thing with my own hair.

I feel your pain. My poor horse's tail ends above his hocks. It's so sad. Thank the good lord above for fake tails!

Are you giving this video as an example of it being hard to tell?

Because it is not a good example if that is what you are trying to show. A natural tail does not get all tangled and stuck between the horses legs when they trot like a fake tail does.

I have no issue with people using them. I am just amused that people think it is not obvious.

Ri-ris tail get's stuck between his legs all the time. So does his mamas... I think it's because they have those great big impressive butts!
