This summer my intentions are keeping Breeze black. I am planning on showing her, so yes, I want her coat to look nice. This summer we will be going to at least 2 shows (hopefully more) and participating in halter and showmanship.
I have made a shopping list that I think will be good to reduce the fading of her coat.
What do you all think, anything I should add or take away?

Also feeding paprika, but stopping before a show... Maybe?
Anything else I should add? Or take away? I was thinking either taking away the trail bags, and just trimming out the faded hair before a show, or adding leg wraps... but then again, her legs don't fade.
With the mane and tail shampoo and conditioner, can you use that on their whole body, mane, tail and the rest? What do you think of the Quic Black shampoo?
I know there are other options to keep her black, but a lot of them is not available, like keeping in a stall during the day, and letting out at night... not going to happen.
I also know there is no way to keep a black horse 100% black, unless it was always kept out of the sun.
