Fake Tails 1 Pound

Sale price $149.99 Regular price $0.00

Give your horse a gorgeous, more voluminous, thicker tail at shows!

1 pound. 34"-36". Knob top. Blunt cut bottom. Real horse hair. Comes with a tail bag cover. Can be trimmed to your horse's tail length. This is a very budget-friendly fake tail. I find that people showing on the Trillium circuit, use this tail. The majority of my braiding clients have this tail.

Can be cut shorter for ponies. Ideally it should sit near the bottom of the dock, so it doesn't interfere with the braid.

Can be used with the tail unbraided, or braided.

Tails should be ‘pulled up’ (see photo), anytime when the horse isn’t being ridden- in the trailer, in the stall, including in the stall between classes. The shavings create a ‘higher’ floor, so it’s quite easy for the horse to step on their fake, and rip it out, or the tail could fall apart from being stepped on.

✨To determine the minimum length you require, measure in inches from the bottom of the dock, to bottom of fetlocks.

Please message me, if you would like to know how to attach them. ⭐️I posted a video on how to attach them, on Katie’s Horse Care Supply Facebook Page (dated November, 21, 2020).

Care Instructions: wash with same shampoo you use to wash your horse’s real tail. Hang to dry. Spray with Show Sheen. Brush EXTREMELY gently. Having a few hairs come out is normal. When not in use, hang freely (not in cover bag). The cover bag should just be used for transporting the tail from place to place. I do not recommend storing it in a tack trunk laying down. If the tail is not kept straight, it may create a curl. TO REMOVE CURL: put water/Show Sheen on the curl, and gently brush. 


Jet black- every hair is solid black.

Natural black- lighter than jet black. Contains red, and white hairs throughout. The bottom of the tail is frequently reddish in colour.

Light sorrel- very light in colour. *I no longer sell Light Sorrel, but do have photos so you can see the difference between the sorrel colours.*

Medium sorrel- mostly red, with some white, and black hairs, naturally mixed in. 

Dark sorrel- very deep red. Appears dark brown, but turns a real dark red in the sunlight.

Dark Grey- mostly black hairs mixed with some silver white hairs. Same colour from top to bottom. If you are looking for a grey tail that has a yellowish/whiteish colour at the bottom, please look under, ‘Fake Tails Handmade By Me, With Love’.
