Some tricks I can think of off the top of my head is:
-Putting Vaseline on the outside of the bridle right before going into the show ring for extra shine
-Baby Oil on the face and tail for some shine, and softness look
-Mop Shine/Glow on the hooves
-Getting a damp sponge, currying the hair, and running the barely damp sponge over the hair to get any remaining dust you may have missed.
That's all I can think of at the moment!!
Please share your tips too! I wanna REALLY try and get my horse looking good for shows!
On another note:
My horse has running eyes and gets crusty all the time 24/7, very annoying! We tried to get them flushed out by the vet and one of them did okay, but the other one has scar tissue? So we couldn't do that eye but the cream the vet gave us to reduce the weeping doesnt work that well..and the eye that was flushed is still no better. Do any of you have any ways that you control it?
