How To Measure For A Tail Extension


How To measure for an extension

When buying a horse tail extension you are going to make sure that you measure properly so you don't get a tail that is too short or a tail that is too long. Start by standing you horse on level ground. Make sure the horse is square or close to it. Then take a tape measure and measure from the bottom of the tail bone to where you want the tail to fall. This is usually the fetlocks but if you want it longer or shorter make sure you measure to where you want it! Please be aware that any tails that fall below the fetlocks when attached are at risk of being stepped on. All tails can easily be trimmed if they arrive and are too long. I usually recommend adding an extra two inches or so to the tail measurement you get for "fluff" factor.
