You seem to have pretty much everything down!
Waterless shampoo is always on my list for show.. it's a huge life saver! Especially if you have a lighter horse or a horse that seems to always come out of the trailer dirty!

I usually band or braid before the show and put a sleezy on my horse, that way I can leave the braiding kit at home.

What discipline are you showing in??? I guess the conditions of the show would say whether or not you really need to bring the studs....

But the waterless shampoo stuff is awesome!!

What about baby oil? I put it in the horses tail-you don't need much! it makes it really shiny!! I also use it around the eyes, muzzel, and under neith their tail- if they lift it up. Do you have Black it? Its a type of black oily paint stuff that goes on their hoofs which makes it a even tone of black.
