Mine isn't that long.
Lincon horse shampoo
Lemon fairy liquid
Lincon coat shine
Mane and Tail conditioner (what ever brand my mum happens to get)
Hoof shine (doesn't work unless the hoof has oil so will need to invest in hoof oil)
Cloth for rubbing in the coat shine.
Lots of brushed (Body brush, mane and tail comb, mane and tail brush, Face brush, rubber curry comb and plastic curry comb) (will buy a sweat scraper at some point)
Oh and I forgot to add plaiting bands (for the shetlands they get their manes and tails plaited to and from the show)(next year I will be showing my big mare she will posiblely be getting plaited or showing we will see).
Think that is about it.
