    What type of show are you competing in?

    I usually do the following for my horse when grooming for a show (in no particular order):

    - clean hooves and apply hoof black
    - wash whole horse if necessary, otherwise just mane and tail
    - clean inside nostrils, around mouth and eyes
    - groom heaps to bring out the shine
    - plait mane day before and put on skinny hood overnight
    - trim feathers, whiskers (not too short though, for his sake), ears, under chin, coronets etc
    - clean tack really well
    - you may also want to apply quarter marks

    That's all I can think of at the moment, Hope I helped

    If you are going to wash your horse's mane and tail don't do it right before the show. Wait a couple days, otherwise it'll be too slippery to braid. Let the oils come back a bit. Hope that helps. And good luck on the show!
