If it is a Western Gaming show - I wouldn't worry too much about braiding or bathing.
Just make sure she is clean, well groomed. Your tack is clean and tidy and you have a comfortable outfit.
You can even coordinate your outfit to match your Candy Cane's outfit. Matching pad and shirt? etc, etc.
You'll be doing Barrels, Pole Bending, Key Hole etc, etc - not showmanship or anything like that.
You wont be infront of a Judge who stands in the middle of the arena watching meticulously at every move you make, it is about your performance and time.
You can use Twinkle Toes :) Those are popular at Gymkanna's. I think they are so cute too :)
Your basic Western Clothing and tack.
Red Ribbon on your horses tail if she kicks.
Make a list of everything you'l want to bring with you. Make sure you check each item off as you pack it to ensure you have it with you.
HAVE FUN!!!! Get lots of piccies!
