At the show, just a quick spray with something like cowboy magic to give the coat a shine, and a quick going over with a soft body brush and you're done ;)
Totally agreed with all of that!!
I also clean the stall spotless before leaving that night! Less of anything to get my horse dirty again is a good thing!!
