Tackle a dirty tail

Your Horse (UK) - - Your Horse's Care -

“Give the bot­tom of your horse’s tail a shampoo. Tail l wash­ing doesn’t take long — a dunk, a scrub and a good rinse does the job. If you u only wash the bot­tom of the tail, a cold wa­ter rinse is just as good, oth­er­wise you’ll have to wait for the ket­tle. He’s not go­ing to feel the cold, only you are — al­though you could don rub­ber gloves. “Hav­ing wash­ing up liquid or whiteen­hanc­ing shampoo in your kit is great for clean­ing grey tails and white legs. Add beeswax pol­ish, baby oil or a con­di­tion­ing spray to the tail be­fore comb­ing through, then snip the ends for a neat fin­ish. “Us­ing a tail ban­dage for trav­el­ling makes the tail look smart as well as pro­tect­ing it.”
