How To Fishtail Braid Your Horse's Tail

A fishtail braid is an attractive braid for your horse's tail. It is flatter in appearance than a standard (right over middle, left over middle) 3-strand braid, and has a slightly more elegant look to it. A fishtail braid may look complicated to do, but is really very simple. In the text and photos below we'll show you how to fishtail braid your horse's tail.

First, a few words of caution:


The Fishtail Braid

Step 1: Begin by brushing your horse's tail until it is free of dirt, tangles, etc. Then divide the hair into two equal sections.

Step 2: You can begin the braid from either the right or left section. To begin from the right like we did in the photos:

You can take large or small pieces of hair to cross over, depending on the finished look you want.

Take hair from the outside of the right-hand section and add it to the inside of the left-hand section.

Begin braiding from the right-hand side


Step 3: Now do the same thing, this time going from left to right:

Take hair from the outside of the left-hand section and add it to the inside of the right-hand section.

Now braid from the left-hand side


 Step 4: Now you simply repeat the steps working your way down the tail.

Repeat the steps and continue on down the tail.

In this photo we've continued braiding down the tail. You can see the braid has started to take shape.

That's It!

Step 5: Continue until you are as far down the tail as you want to go. When you're finished, secure the bottom of the braid with an elastic band.

If you like, when you're done braiding you can widen the fishtail braid slightly by gently pulling it outwards on each side all the way down the braid. This isn't necessary, but can create a fuller look. If you're curious, we did NOT widen the finished braid in the photo above.
