I own a white horse (faded grey paint), so I have show clean down to a perfection, haha. I don't like waking up early, so I do majority of the bathing/clipping the night before along with braiding/banding. I put a sleezy on (helps bands/braids stay down, just makes sure they're straight), put his blanket on, braid and bag his tail (makes it fluffy in the morning and prevents poop stains!). I close him in a stall, and add LOTS of fresh bedding, along with some extra hay to hopefully keep him busy enough to NOT roll!
I get there as early as possible in the morning to do spot cleaning (usually legs have to be re-done)/checking braids (re-doing bad ones), and all the minor touch-ups (cowboy magic = amazing).
Of course, in the summer I do daily hosings/keep his tail up/ect. To make sure he's not an absolute disaster come the day before :]
