I am not sure what classes you show in or what level you are showing (I show AQHA shows) but the day of the show grooming wise I black my horses feet, put in a fake tail (that requires washing before hand), and put on face glo.
hoof black - Schneider Saddlery
face glo - Schneider Saddlery

About a week before the show I clip the horses whites on there legs with size 10 clipper blades and at the show I put baby powder on them to make them look extra white. I always make sure I have some grooming supplies at the ring with me for touch ups before I go in the ring.

grooming wise, the night before i a show i curry ( with a rubber curry) my horses body the brush the dust,hair, and other stuff that comes up off with a med. stiff brush. after i do that i wash my horse.

i wash my horse by putting shampoo in a bucket with water, spray my horse down, then with a stiff brush i scrub him down with the suds ( sometimes i'll put shampoo on my brush as well). after i get all the shampoo & conditioner off of him and out of his tail. I spray him down with show sheen, lots n lots of show sheen in the tail. then i put his cooler on. untangle his tail with my fingers, sand paper his hoofs, and put shoe polish on his hoofs.

then when he's semi - dry i band his mane & forelock. hair spray.

the day of the show, i put hoof black and then clear hoof polish on the black. i also put his fake tail in which like said above requires washing & blowing drying before hand.

about two days before the show i clip his legs, the day before the show i clip his muzzle, bridle path, eye whiskers, ears, whatever needs clipping. then with a razor i shave his muzzle with shaving cream.

blanket and lock him out of his run. i like to find my favorite halter horse out of the journal and compare my horse to it, you should be able imagine eating off your horse. [:

I ride western pleasure because i can handle

I loooooove show sheen and vetroline shine! I odn't know what i'd do without them, at a show and just around the barn.

but my preperations for shows is pretty simple..
before a show:
Clip the bridle path and chin whiskers,
bath(if weather permits)
soak the horse with showsheen/vetroline shine
band the mane.
body brush
clean the legs
put on hoof dressing
and if its cool out or raining, a light blanket

day of:
trailer to show
paint hooves black/clear
take out mane bands
brush mane/tail
warm up
WIN!(haha, sometimes anyways)

i don't really do anything fancy since i only go to schooling shows.

The main thing I carry with me at shows assuming that he's already been clipped, shampooed and braided is:
Fly spray depending on the season
and oil for his hooves.

I am lucky enough to own a horse who has zero markings that eliminates a lot of problems I just make sure to keep him covered the night before and there we go. Now this theory is with past showing I have done since my pest is only a year and a half
