With show season well underway, it is the time of year when the competitors among us want to keep our equine friends in their very best show condition. Together, with a well-maintained coat and hooves, a well-cared for mane and tail demonstrate that your horse has a bill of good health. Trimming your horse’s tail not only enhances his appearance but, without excess length or unkempt ends, there is less likelihood of the hair becoming matted with mud, droppings and bedding.
We have pooled together some tips on keeping your horse’s tail in show condition. A tail kept at the right length and in a strong, clean condition will complement the conformation of the horse and help get you in the ribbons at your next show!
With great grooming and lots of care and attention, your horse can remain in amazing show condition with a healthy and immaculate tai,l all year long. Caring for the tail is just one part of the overall grooming regimen, and you should take a look at our post on grooming tools and techniques for ideas on keeping your horse in the best condition.
We hope to see you here at Spalding again soon!
