How to I cut a horses tail?

How to I cut a horses tail?
Put a polo wrap under tail at base and this will create a natural fall. Pinch together ends and cut then go back over by eye and trim any longer bits.
You brush he tail good and then ask someone to put their hand under their dock and cut about 4inches below the hock but if your doing hunters or eq do just below the ankle
I usually brush the tail out fully put my hands around the top of the tail and run then down to the bottom making sure I keep all the hair together and then cut off what's needed to be cut off at the end x
