How to Harvest Horse Hair


Wash the tail

If possible wash the tail.

Use a specific horsehair shampoo to wash the tail


No Sprays

Please do not spray tail conditioner or silicon products onto tail hairs

Conditioning sprays make the hair slippery and more difficult to use and form into a tight rosette.


Cut a piece of tail

As long as possible.

Just up from the bottom of the dock and slightly to the side, cut a section of tail hair about two fingers in thickness.
