I would recommend banging your horses tail instead, I find it looks really nice and tidy and it dosent damage the tail
Only if your horse has a very thick tail
I think it's bad because it pulled out hairs and I think it's better to keep it thick and long so it is easier to braid and the fake tails are usually cheaper
I think pulling tails makes them look really nice, it's just the upkeep that keeps me from doing it. But if you are showing a lot on the big circuits i would recommend it!
