Fake Tails 1/2 Pound

Regular price $79.99

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

1/2 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 competing at the trillium shows, 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 bottom of dock, to bottom of fetlocks.

Feel free to 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 the 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. 

  1. Jet black- every hair is solid black. 
    ⭐️IN STOCK IS .40 pound. 1/2 pound SOLD OUT⭐️
  2. Natural black- lighter than jet black. Contains red, & white hairs, throughout. The bottom of the tail is frequently reddish in colour. Mostly matches bays, and blacks.
  3. Medium sorrel- mostly red, with some white, and black hairs, naturally mixed in.
  4. Dark sorrel- darker than medium sorrel.
  5. Dark grey- mostly black hairs, mixed with some silver, and white hairs. Same colour from top to bottom. If you are looking for a grey tail, that has a yellowish colour at the bottom, please look under, ‘Fake Tails Handmade By Me, With Love’.
