As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

A tail wrap that really stays put! Professional Choice Tail Wrap features a non-slip lining and three, 3” adjustable hook fasteners to keep it securely in place. The Professional Choice Tail Wrap offers better protection than other tail wraps because of its unique additional contoured padding at the top. This padding protects the fragile top tail hairs from rubbing and fraying.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Show Ready Tail My large 17 hand warmblood leans against the back of his trailer and had rubbed a bald spot in his full, lush tail. This protective tail wrap prevents damage and can be applied as snugly as I want it to be. It stays in place with no slipping. The contoured padding at the top protects the hairs but also prevents any contusion sore from the constant leaning while my horse is in the trailer. For me this product is a must-have.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well The first one I bought tore and SmartPak graciously replaced it with another one. This second one has worked great. My horse rubs his tail at night and I was worried about it coming off. So far, it rarely comes off, but I do wrap it snugly. My horse is very tolerant of having his tail messed with and doesn't mind the velcro sound and pulling on the tail when taking it off in the morning, but some might. It provides a great cushion and, I would think, good training for a crupper!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from professional choice tail wrap The tail wrap stayed in place well, but the upper reinforced padded area, tore away from the lower tail wrap within a few uses. The inner tail wrap also developed frayed areas and separation.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great My mare pulls her hairs off her tail while trailering, she rubs against the butt bar, so she would end up with bald spots, very unattractive before shows. The tail wrap is easy to put on, stays on, and does the job. the extra pad at the top protects the tail head from rubbing. I recommend it!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I can't get it to stay on! I can't evaluate much about this product because I can't get it to stay on the horse! I tried it for several weeks to try and deter my horse from rubbing his tail and keep his friends from eating it. But this thing would not stay on in the stall or in the pasture, no matter what I tried.My horse has a kind of puny tail (which is part of why I bought this!) but it really should stay put better.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from nice product but.... I like the this tail protector and it is easy to apply and the neoprene is soft for the underside of the tail and the velcro really grips is for short term use only like trailoring. It will not stay on for any length of time. I find it every morning in my horse's small paddock. I suppose it is better that it slides off rather than being too tight and possibly damaging the tail itself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from What did I do before... I got my trailering tail wrap?? I have a front load trailer and my horse would always come out with the tail head rubbed raw and covered in a not so pleasant substance. Bought this and I have never trailered without it. Easily to put on, no slipping what so ever, easy to wash, and my horse's tail comes out looking pristine when I unload him. Excellent product.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from I can't get this to stay on him. I bought it so it would keep him from rubbing his tail in the stall but he manages to get it off no matter what I do to try and make it stay on. I think maybe if it was longer it would do better but that is a guess.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great This is the only tail wrap I've used before, but it works great so far. I had to start using something on my horse while trailering since he started to rub his tail out during trailering. Easy to use and it has stayed in place very well without being too tight.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ok Tail Wrap This is a decent tail wrap. Nothing fancy about it, but it works well for trailering. Fits my 14.1 hd QH fine. Haven't tried it on my 16.3 TB..

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Protection and these last forever pretty much These tail wraps last forever pretty much and are good protection from rubbing while travelling or in the stable. I like these better than tail bandages. They also wash easy. Don't put them in the dryer though!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works reasonably well It doesn't stay on too well. I have to put it back on every morning. But it works for my needs. My horse rubs his tail when he gets up and also the bottom of his fly sheet rubs some as well. I figure that if it stays on for 12 of the 24 hours that is that much less time that rubbing can occur.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Quick Fix I bought this tail wrap because every time my horse would come off the trailer at a horse show his already fairly thin tail would be completely mangled at the top from resting/rubbing on the butt bar. I got this to try to save his poor tail and help it to grow more and so far I have had great success! It stays put the entire time, even on a 11 hour haul and it does not seem to bother him at all.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Got this tail wrap to prevent my Standardbred from rubbing upper portion of tail when in stall. Unfortunately, the wrap does not stay on no matter how much I snug up on the velcro tabs. I saw where someone solved this by trapping some tail hair in the wrap, unfortunately my horse doesn't have enough long hair in this area to do this. The wrap itself seems to be well constructed and durable. Seems to be short, if longer it might stay in place better.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best Really a great product: never slips down, easy to clean. The only way I could improve this product is if it was a few inches longer, and it came with a tail bag to attach to the top part to keep trails dry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase My horse was losing hair at the top of his tail due to rubbing against the stall wall. Knew it couldn't be a worm infection as he had just been tested for this. Began using a spray on the bald spot and keeping his tail wrapped with this tail wrap. His hair is growing in nicely now. No more bald spot. Found this tail wrap to be excellent when trailering too. This specific tail wrap was suggested to me by the barn manager as she finds it an extremely good product too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from keeps tail feathers long The Professional's Choice tail wrap fits better than any other I have tried and keeps my horses' tails intact during trailering. My gelding has a tendancy to sit down on the wall and this prevents all of my hard work from being rubbed off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great wrap After years of using vet wrap to wrap my horse's tail on the way to shows, I decided to try this. Boy am I glad! It saves me time which I never seem to have enough of the morning of a show. It protects my horse's tail well and it seems comfortable for him as well.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works if it fits I can see why people love the Professional Choice Tail Wrap, if it fits. But I struggled to get it to fit on my mare's thick dock of her tail and it was laughable how tiny it was compared to her tailhead. I bought it specifically to help prevent her from rubbing out her tail base, but it didn't help. If you have a large horse (Mine is 17 hands, 1500lbs), it may not work for you. But it did fit my friend's 14.2hd QH mare just fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Friesian Favorite! When you have a Friesian, it's all about preserving those long manes and tails. This tail wrap prevents precious hairs from breaking when trailering and also helps keep the tail clean. Just hose the wrap off when you're done and it's as good as new!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for protecting tail in trailer! My large gelding hardly fits in our extra long trailer and often gets bumps on his way to the shows. In addition to the head bumper, I use this tail wrap to protect him anytime we trailer. Added bonus: When we go to shows it keeps his tail in perfect shape and not a single hair gets displaced!
