Cruz Bay

About Me

Active within 3332 Days

I am from Owings, MD and I've been a Club Horse member for 9 years, 1 month and 23 days

Nicknames: Because he is a Throughbred crossed with Welsh Cob, I often call him a naughty pony when he misbehaves!

Age: 18 years old

Gender: Gelding


Height: 16.1 hands

Color: Light bay, with a small star on his forehead

Type of Riding: We started out eventing, and Cruz was very successful. But he is also a bit of a klutz and often tapped an obstacle and bruised his legs. I changed to dressage. He is so athletic that he is performing well in that discipline.

My Horse's Achievements: He moved up from Introductory to Training Level dressage and straight to First Level in one season.

My Horse's Favorite Treat: Cruz will eat practically anything, but especially loves having honey mixed with his feed.

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Cruz loves to be groomed, and have his head rubbed.
He also enjoys being around other horses at horse shows as long as they're not cantering towards him!

Pet Peeves: He's still worried about other horses in the warm up arena!

My Horse's motto: Never give up!

How We Met

I bred Cruz Bay. His mom was a nineteen year old maiden Thoroughbred mare and I was so lucky that her first and only foal turned out to be so wonderful. His mom died at age twenty-six, and I am blessed to have her son..

Do you need a horse show tail?
Well, you can always buy one! Yes, they are expensive, so why not just let your horse grow one? With your help it can and will happen.

First of all, stop brushing the tail. I only brush my horse's tail every few weeks. Yes I said weeks. Begin by washing the tail. Use a mild shampoo. I like Pert Plus. Always dilute even the mildest shampoo with water in a bucket. Rinse well. Next, condition the tail with a lot of conditioner. It detangles better after you condition. Again, rinse well and towel dry. Now use lots of Show Sheen while detangling only with your fingers. Once the tail is detangled comb it out and trim the bleached or damaged ends off. Not a lot, maybe an inch.

Then, beginning with the hair at the top of the tail bone, braid it tightly. Tightly is the key here. Braid it until at least 4 inches of the tail is hanging at the bottom, unbraided. If you braid it all the way down you will turn the horse's fly swatter into a whip, and you don't want that. Leave at least 4 inches unbraided at the bottom. This may only give you a few inches of braids but that is how you begin to grow a tail. Now fasten your braid at the bottom with two or three rubber bands. Preferably use a band that is coated with fabric. Make the bands as tight as you can. Then put duck tape over the bands to secure the band even better. Now leave the tail alone for a few weeks, or even longer.

Leave it alone as long as the braid doesn't become matted at the top of the tail. I have gone as long as 6 weeks without taking the braids out and re-doing it. And remember, use lots of fly spray and keep the tail cleaner than clean. A tail swishing flies causes more breakage and the braids won't last as long. If you follow this procedure in a few months your horse's tail will begin to grow longer and look fabulous in no time at all.

For pictures go to and let us know what you think.
