Mane and Tail Care

Show off your horse’s locks with these simple techniques.

There’s something undeniably appealing about a horse with a full, shiny mane and tail. But taking care of those tresses requires some extra work! A big part of what makes those thick manes and tails is genetics. Some horses are simply destined for flowing locks, while others are born with the wispy look. There are certainly some things you can do to encourage healthy hair growth, but keep in mind that not every horse is born to grow the kind of mane and tail you might admire on a Friesian or an Andalusian.

Maintaining a Mane

If you compete in hunter/jumper, dressage, eventing, or western pleasure, you’ll most likely keep your horse’s mane short. If your horse has thick hair, you can do this by pulling the mane. This helps keep it tidy and makes it much easier to braid or band for shows.
