I also want to throw out there - not to discourage you, but just to give you a head's up - real equine hair does NOT behave the same way as MLP hair does. At all. It is much more coarse and has a tendency to kind of stick up/out and not lay very flat, at least in my experience.

You don't need the needles but they are handy. You could use the knot method which I have been doing till just recently, but it's a lot slower and it can be tough on your hands because of the wire pulling.

This is the tutorial I learned from.

you can also make a rehair tool if you would like it easy.

just take an xacto knife handle and some 24 gauge tapestry needles cut the eye of the needle open stick the other end in the handle of the xacto knife and there you go presto rehair tool.

I can't bare using my rehair tool (I have no idea why) I use the knot and floss method. It takes slightly longer but I don't mind.

Real horse hair would be a heck of a challenge, ambitious as you are maybe starting with nylon or saran would be better?
