The additional tail will be fixated with different braiding techniques.
Each horse is built differently and moves different. Therefore it is important to see which technique gives the best results. Also important, the horse must feel comfortable with the chosen Showtail!
The fixings are sturdy and will, even if the horse swings with the tail, firmly stuck.
Showtail additional tail are available in 3 different models:
Showtail Cieni hangs directly below the tailbone. This tail includes a tunnel-opening through which a "lace" is achieved. The hair under the tailbone is first made to a long braid. In this braid a 2- or 3-double knot is made. Wrap the tunnel-opening of the Showtail over the knot. Close the tunnel-opening with the lace. In this way, the additional tail, hangs in its own tail. Because the hair of its own tail is covering the additional tail, this Showtail is not visible. If the hair of its own tail is too short for a long braid, we use a braided ring instead of a triple knot. The Showtail is then slid over this ring.
Showtail Cieni is ideal for filling up the tail.
Showtail Robinia is pushed over the tailbone. This Showtail contains 4 small holes, 2 on each side. First determine location where the Showtail must hang. Beneath this point a braid is made, so the Showtail van be easily slide over the tailbone. Make the braid lose again. Pull a section of tail hair though the holes by using a hook tool. On each side a braid is made out of the hair from the 2 holes and hair of the Showtail. The braids on each side of the tail comes together beneath the tailbone to a single braid. If the horse fequently moves his tail, a "lace" is used, which is braided with the hair. In this way the tail will remain firmly.
Robinia is suitable for horses with a thin tail and frequently swing.
Showtail Figaro can be put on the tailbone at any desired height. This tail contains 3 or 4 holes. A section of onw tail hair is pulled through these holes by using a simple hook. This hair is braided toegether with hair of the Showtail in a specific pattern.
Figaro is ideaal for levelling and thickening of the tail.
