Searched "weighted tail"

I wouldn't use a weighted tail, although the inherent weight of a normal tail could help.

hmm interesting, i had not heard of this. however...

some fake tails are heavier than others-dependent on brand, fullness, size, etc. what i have noticed from personal experience is that the heavier ones tend to get caught between the horse's back legs at the canter, so it is then obvious there is a fake tail. i would assume the ones with actual weights would do the same thing...

Quite ftankly, the ones that you see stuck between legs are not weighted, they are blocked tails. Sorry to burst the bubble. Its not about brand or fullness or weight.

the tails we use are not 'blocked' tails. thanks though.

we have gone through several different brands, weights/fullness, etc. and always found the heavier/fuller the tail, it would get caught up below their hocks at the canter.

From my experience, the tails which get caught between the hind legs are not attached properly.
