Honest question: Long tails?
I know one thing we all love about Morgans is their ability to grow long manes and tails, but… aren’t the very, very long tails seen in some show horses a safety issue?
I got to watch a little bit of the live streaming from OKC, and saw a couple of horses in an equitation class rear up or otherwise freak out when they were asked to canter from a halt, and stepped on their tails. I have also seen a mare get very agitated during the line-up when the horse next to her stepped on her tail as he was coming in, horses not back properly because they stepped on their tails, and so forth.
I keep my Morgan’s tail trimmed to fetlock length.
