Instructions

  1. Measure approximately 3" up from the bottom of your horse’s tail bone. Part your horse’s tail hair and pull the upper hairs out of the way; secure with bands or clips.
  2. Position the tail extension on the lower third of the tail bone.
  3. The bottom of the extension should not pass the bottom of the horse’s fetlock.
  4. Optional: place a rubber band around the tail extension head. This can be used for extra security later on.
  5. Braid a ½” diameter section of hair in the center of the tail just beneath the tailbone and braid down about 4”-8”. Secure with a rubber band.
    OPTION: Braid a ½” diameter section of hair in the center of the tail just beneath the tailbone and braid down about 1”. Braid in the fake tail braids to each side of the natural tail braid. Continue your braid another 4” to 8” and secure the end tightly with a rubber band.
  6. Determine desired tail height and string the extension top hair strands through the braided section of tail and tie the strands together snugly. Lay the ends of the laces against the extension top. To better secure the extension, apply electrical tape around the top, or pull the band that was earlier placed around the top, over the bands to keep them down.
    OPTION: Lay the end of the braid against the extension top. To better secure the extension, apply electrical tape around the top, or pull the band that was earlier placed around the top, over the bands to keep them down.
  7. You can use the extra rubber band that you may have placed around the top of the tail extension and pull it over top of your banded area. This will keep the area flat.
  8. LArrange natural tail hair around the tail extension.
  9. The bottom of the tail extension should fall at about the horse’s fetlock. Test by backing the horse SLOWLY. If the horse comes close to stepping on the extension…STOP! Check to be sure the top of the extension is as close to the tailbone as possible. If the extension is still too long, the tail needs to be trimmed to the proper length to ensure the horse does not step on the end and pull the braid from the tailbone.
*Under AQHA rules and regulations, tails may be lengthened by hair to hair attachment only, with no attachments of any kind to the tailbone. Check your breed or show association rules regarding the use of a tail extension.
Tail Care:
All tails are 100% natural horse hair and should be shampooed and conditioned regularly. Blow dry or towel dry and fluff when completely dry to give a full look and add body. Storing in a padded case keeps tail in ready to show condition.
