Another quick little secret. Between classes in a dusty arena use a damp wash cloth or towel and run it over the horses coat. It takes the dust off and leaves it gleaming!

If your horse is light in the hands use cream or other light coloured gloves. But if the horse is heavy in the hands, use dark coloured gloves as it won't attract attention to your hands.

If you show in quarter horse country (like me, and i show arabs : ] ) You gota get use to Deep Arenas and ALOT of dust! To make sure your horse dosnt turn dirt colord and muddy from sweating, ALWAYS have a bag of wash cloths and my personal show favorite Peppi! Run it over the coat before classes and brush off hooves So all the hard work you put into Making their feet shine dosnt get covered up by Dust!

And keep em happy with a bag or apples or carrots at the exit gate for when they do good. Oh and a cool bucket of water so they dont get To hot. If your horse is like mine they drink like camels!

Don't use showsheen on your horse before you tack up, your saddle with slip.
If its not hot use a sheet and hood to keep your horse clean the night before the show. Of and I also use shipping boots for safety and to keep legs clean.
I always have a bucket of water on hand.
Baby wipes are a must!
Fly spray is always on hand so is washcloths.
I'm done for now but i'll be back.
