I personally have three pair of pony hair shoes and one python. They are very similar as far as their care. The big thing is to not let either get dry, as the hair can fall out or the python skin can become very brittle. The easiest was to care pony hair is to use a microfiber the is soaked with warm water and wrung out to the point where it is damp enough to clean thoroughly. Always go with the hair as if you were combing it flat. Don't use a ton of pressure, just let the microfiber do the work. If you have a soiled area then you can use a mild soap and use the same process. Always try it on a conspicuous place, then repeat with a microfiber that has just been soaked in water to essentially "rinse" the soap off if you will. Continue to do that until you feel that the soap residue is gone. Simply let the shoes dry and they will look like new. I have used this process my pony hair shoes that I have had a year and they still look like new.
