[QUOTE=Zexious;3615794]There will always be ways of shortcutting if the waking up early thing is an issue. If the classes are later, you could do it on the grounds? Is the girl paying you to do it? If not, you could suggest that it's her responsibility.
Getting up early is not really an issue as it is inconvenient. I only live 10 min away from the barn, it will take about 20 min to get to the show and classes start at 8:00am (want to be there no later than 7:00am as this is my 2 students first show), so compared to some, I've got it pretty easy.
I am a perfectionist and want the mane to be done just right so I will be doing it, but my student's mom got a "Jammies" to put on the mare's neck for the night. Hopefully there will only be some touch up in the morning.
Thanks for all your advise and comments. Really appreciate it. Wish us luck
