Measure approximately 3 inches up from the bottom of your horses tail bone This will vary based upon the height of your horse and length of his. You want the extension to fall to the fetlock area.

 Part your horseís tail hair and pull the upper hairs of the horse's tail up and out of the way.  You can have and assistant place their hand on the hair to hold it out of the way or secure with bands or clips to keep it out of the way.  

 

 
 
 
 Next, in the center of your horseís tail bone pick up 3 small sections of hair.  Thread the center section of hair through the loop of the extension.  Make sure that the extension is laying flat against the tail bone.  Now tightly braid the sections together.  You only need to braid down 2-3 inches, then secure with a rubber band
 
Note:  If your horse's tail is clean and silky it is helpful to use a braid/banding spray (like quick braid) or hair gel.  Doing this will help the hair to grab and keep your braids tight.     

 
If you are going to be Hunter Braiding your horse's tail you are finished. Drop your upper hair back down and gently brush and begin your Hunter Braid.  

 If you are Not Hunter Braiding the tail then you will want to do a couple more steps to further secure your Tail Extension.

 Move down to the bottom of your horse's tail bone.............

On the RIGHT side of the tail bone pick up a lock of hair from your horse's tail.  Now, pick up a lock from your Tail Extension combine the hair and braid together.  Make your braid small and tight and start braiding as close to the tail bone as possible.You only need to braid down a few inches.  Then secure with a rubber band

Next go to the LEFT side of the tail bone and repeat the process.  

Doing these 2 braids will keep your Tail Extension from swinging side to side
 

 
 
Lastly, drop your upper hair back down and gently brush.  
 The first time you attach the extension stand to the side and have someone slowly back the horse.   If the tail starts to drag the ground STOP.   Move the extension higher up the so that the horse can back without stepping on the extension.
