Slide-on Attachment Instructions
 
Please Note:  Contrasting colors were used in the below photographs to aid in illustration of attachment.

 

 

Braid a small section of hair at the bottom of the (approx 10-14 inches long). Be sure that the braid is approx. the same diameter as the hole in the extension. Secure the braid with a rubber band. 

 

 

 

 

Using a latch hook, pull the braid down through the hole of the extension.
 

 

 

 

 
Now,  tie a knot in the braid. The tail extension will rest on the knot.  For the most natural appearance,  the extension should be attached directly below the tail bone.
 

 

 

 

 

To better secure he extension you can wrap the braided knot with electrical tape or, run a 5" cable tie down through the hole and braid and pull snug.
 

 

 
 
 

The bottom of the tail extension should fall at about the horse's fetlock.

 

 Some of  your horse's natural hairs may be longer than the extension hairs.  If this is the case, trim the hairs so that they are the same length.

 

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. (If the horse steps on the extension he could pull out the braid).   Check that the extension is sitting as close to the tail bone as possible.  If it is then we would recommend trimming the extension so that the horse can back without stepping on the extension.

 


Tail Extension Care

All tails are 100% Natural Horse Hair and should be shampooed and conditioned regularly.

Blow dry and fluff your extension to give it a full look. To remove knots use your fingers or gently brush, DONíT PULL, your tail extension.

 

 Do not leave your tail extension attached overnight.  Remove the extension after your day of competition is complete.
