We offer two types of horse tails:


1) De-boned, scraped, washed, and dried. See pictures of our dried horse tails below.


2) Scraped, de-boned, washed, and tanned. See pictures of our tanned horse tails below.

The first 15 cm or so at the base of the tail where it attached to the body is quite hard and stiff. On the tanned horse tails, this part is a little softer and more flexible than on the dried horse tails. This part of the tail is about 7.5 to 10 cm wide. The tails are 100 cm to 115 cm long. The short tails are 75 cm to 100 cm long. They come in different colours, predominantly black with a little brown. There are a few blonde ones, as well as some salt & pepper colored. The multi-colored tails are usually a combination of brown, red, and blond. Native Americans use them as hair on their False Face Masks. They are also used on carousel horses and Halloween costumes.

Do NOT comb when just removed from hot water or the hair may fall out.

Our Gxx codes denote individual pieces. If you would like to order a specific one, please go to our Gallery to pick the exact one shown.
