Fake tails

I'm on board with all of the comments apart from those about fake tails. Fake tails have become somewhat of an obsession in the hunter ring, with no purpose other than vanity, in contrast to every other aspect of turnout, all of which have their roots in function, not fashion. There is nothing 'traditional' about a fake tail. I judged an unrated show recently where even braiding wasn't required (though many horses were braided). We had exactly one AAA hunter make an appearance, with no braids, and a very obvious (as it was precariously attached and ended up falling out) fake tail inserted into his completely adequate natural tail. Do the users of the fake tails take any time to consider where all these tails originate? Dead horses do not need their tails, but they deserve their dignity whether they spent their life in service or suffering. In circles where there is debate about whether riding is a "sport," and whether horses and riders are athletes, the use of a fake tail which affects only appearance, is certainly evidence against athleticism as it does not contribute to function or form. Ironic that any other type of artificial enhancement is prohibited under the rules; surely tails that don't belong to the horse are "artificial" however 'normalized' their use has become. Bring back the art of the mud knot, and leave those tails attached to the horses that were born with them.

Fake tails

TOTALLY AGREE. Where did this come from? How "conservative" is this trend?? So unnatural. Looks fake. Detracts from the natural beauty of the horse. Let's do away with fake tails. Hunter people deride the gaited horses and their perceived artificiality. Seems like we are becoming more like what we protest against!
