Exclamation Slippery boots?

I have a show tomorrow, and I'm doing a bareback class. It makes more sense to ride English due to the time restraints (My english class is RIGHT after it...). The problem is, my boots make it hard to post the trot. I know a lot of people won't post anyway, but I figure, if I have the leg strength, why not look the best I can?
My boots slip around on his body, and it's hard to grip. I never spray anything there if I have riding classes, so it isn't any type of spray that's the problem.

Is there anything I could put on my boots to help grip a bit better without damaging them? Would a bit of hairspray work?
