How to Choose the Best Horse Tail Bag

Choosing the right horse tail bag for your horse can depend on if you are looking to protect tail hair for a short period of time or as one that your horse can wear every day, keeping their tail clean and protected during turnout and being stalled. There are different styles of horse tail bags to choose from.

Braided Horse Tail Bags: Are made from soft, lycra tubes that you can separate the tail hairs into braids, keeping your horse’s tail clean, and tangle-free, and preventing damage during turnout. The ends of a braided tail bag also work similarly to the fringe-style tail bags, allowing your horse to whisk away flies and biting insects.

Lycra Tail Bags: These are soft, breathable, stretchy tail bags that offer protection to your horse’s tail from breakage, dirt, mud, and manure stains. It also can be used to keep a tail clean after a bath. These can be used as everyday tail bags, including during turnout.

Tail Wraps: Made from neoprene material, tail wraps are designed to protect the fragile hairs on the dock of your horse’s tail from rubbing or keeping braids clean. These are great for short-term use when your horse’s tail is braided or while trailering.

Fake Tail Bags: Keep your fake horse tails and tail extensions clean and protected with horse tail extension bags. These storage bags allow you to hang your fake tails inside, zipping the bags closed to keep out dust, rodents, and debris so your investments stay in tip-top condition when not in use.

How long can a tail bag stay on?

Some horses wear a tail bag year round but should always be removed at least once a week to check for any mud, dirt, or tangles. You can wash or comb out the tail and put a clean, dry tail bag back on for another week before your next re-check.

How do you secure a tail bag on a horse?

To secure a tail bag on a horse, you want to braid the tail bag near the top of your horse’s tail braid, being careful not to actually tie the tail bag onto the tailbone at all. Tying a tail bag onto the tailbone can cause serious damage to the nerves along the dock of the tail.
