What show prep products do you use?

Now that the 2010 show season for me has come to a close I was lugging in my show stuff from the trailer for storage in the house and while doing inventory on what I need before next year I was wondering what product(s) everyone uses for show prep?

This is what we use:
-Era Oxy Laundry Detergent
-Mane N' Tail Conditioner
-World Champion Pepi Spray
-Cowboy Magic Green Spot Remover
-Shapley's Show Touch Up
- Silverado Face Glo (In neutral and black)
-Quic Braid
-Ultra Hoof Enhancer
-Cowboy Magic Detangler & Shine OR Infusium 23 (both do the same thing we just get what ever is the easiest to get when we run out)
-Mane N' Tail Hoofmaker (actually use this after shows when hoof polish has worn off to keep hooves healthy)

I be leave this is everything, now post what you use!

Vaseline for around the eyes and nose for that clean, "shiny" look--especially in English hunter/eq classes, really finishes off the look.

Here is my list:
- Baby powder (for whitening white legs)
- Baby Oil (For adding shine to the muzzle and the mane and tail when it isn't braided)
- Shapley show touch ups
- Twinkle white chrome cream (for my horse's blaze)
- QuicBlack
- Vetrolin Conditioner
- Quic Screen Sunscreen
- Ricochet horse wipes or regular baby wipes
- Bit wipes
- Horseman's one step leather cream (best tack cleaner/conditioner ever)
- Clear hoof polish
- Show Sheen/ Shapleys Hi Gloss Finishing Spray
- Ultra Fast-Dry Towels


And of course the more obvious
- Brushes
- Tail brush
- Hoof pick (with brush)
- Sweat scraper
- Extra yarn
- Scissors
- Duct Tape

Yep we use baby wipes for almost everything, extra wide toothed comb then we also use a flick and a finishing brush. For the very few bands we use (normally for only hunt seat classes) we use clear bands made for humans from the dollar store, its always a perfect match.

Shampoo, one of the best ways to get white, truly white. Plus you get more for your money compared to some horse color enhancer shampoos that don't always work.

My pintos are hard to look at in the bright sun on show days as its glaring white

I second this, Vaseline works a treat my ponys first show out I applied it as a make-up for around the eyes and also the mouth, He looked amazing, For mane and tail I would apply no-knots to mane and tail leaves mane and tail looking mazing also.
