My First Show-Help-Tips Needed***

Well, on the 31st of January i'm going to my first (not pony club) show :) Im so excited but im not sure what I should be doing with my mare...

She's a Palomino there's a picture of her on this link, I got a new MARE!!!!

I have no Idea what I should do with her mane.. I could hog it off and just braid her forelock and tail, or should I let her mane grow out a little bit more and flop over and do something with it was well as Abbi's forelock and tail?

Any other tips on making her look BEAUTIFUL hehe.

Also whats the go with saddle cloths or numnah, what colour etc.

So any tips would be great, about braiding or grooming or hoofs. Even tack.. thanks guys :)

I'd braid her mane, it's probably not required but it's always good practice! I'd go with a fairly neutral colour for your saddle pad, even just black or white would be nice with her colouring.

Braid it (mane, tail, forelock)!
For saddle pads, if you don't have a shaped pad or a half pad, use a regular white one. If you have a half pad, use that by itself. Orrr if you have a shaped pad, you could use that as well.
After you bathe her, cover her up completely.

Umm... whats a half pad?

I like the sound of all the classes you are doing but watch you don't do too many, or else you'll end up with a tired, cranky horse :)

And a tip - don't get hoof black on your joddies... I speak from experience :P
