    You could maybe buy some stuff that will make her shiney. There is some stuff that I use. I forget what it is called but its very good.
    BTW very pretty horse, And dog lol

    Ohh and if you do use the shiney stuff and your ridding her in the same day than don't put it in the saddle part because it will have it slippery.

    Also do you know where I can get some pink hair dye... stuff that wont be that bad for my horse..its for breast cancer and I don't no whether to just use spray or not.

    Please learn to use punctuation.

    There are numourous brands that will give the horse a shiny coat. Look for anything silicon based, and I believe they now have a large number of non-silicon based products that have the same result. Maybe a good wash and conditioning will be aquequite tho, since it is just a clinic.

    Ilovemymare - hair spray should be ok, but condition the mane before using it, and wash it out as soon as you are done, and condition it again. I've used pink spray on my mare's rump before, and had no problems doing this. My sister on the other hand, was too lazy to wash her horse after, and it ended up staining him and he was blue for a month. Both horses are grays.

    You could use some paste type glue (that washes off with water) and glitter. Glue first then sprinkle with glitter on her hooves.
    Ribbons in her mane and tail or just on her bridle

    I'd try getting main and tail, and either show sheen or healthy hair. The main and tail, spray it heavily in her tail while it is sill wet from the bath, then don't brush untill it is dry.

    Show sheen and healthy hair both make shiny coats, but avoid the saddle area.

    You could also pick up some hoof oil and paint her feet

    But guess what it's just rained and she has already been bathed for me, but I'll still probably bath her.

    I have this stuff Twinkle Eyes and Nose Oil and Shampoos and Conditioners *|*EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM and it's great. Any idea how I can keep her pretty in a stall cause she will be staying in stalls for the clinic,thanks guys

    Is she a Curly? Or was the picture just taken when she had her winter coat and was wet?

    I would just brush her, give her a bath and braid her up. And you can keep polo wraps on her legs and a sheet to keep her clean in her stall. You can also get so manure stain remover stuff that you can spray on if she gets any spots, but seeing as she is bay, it won't show up much. You can also invest in a slinky hood to come up her neck and over her face. It comes with ear and eye holes, and stops mid nose.
