    The tail should be left down in it's natural state, but clean like the rest of the horse, no sawdust, straw, hay, etc. should be stuck in it. Try to get the knots out too if there are any. Yes and do clean the hooves out, if you can polish them up with hoof black or clear hoof polish (depending on hoof color).

    Have you watched a halter class before and know what the judge will ask you to do?

    Yeah there sort of like the Showmanship classes but not judging you they judge the horses. I've been to the 4h shows and watched.

    Okay, that's good. You should be set then, just make sure your horse trots and can stand square. Good luck with your show.

    Put hoof flex on hoofs to give them a shine. Tale bush and fluff. You will also want to work your mare to burn off any extra fat. Lunge her every day. You do not have to try to bulk her up but if she gose in with out being trim it is not good. Baby oil around the nose and eyes to make them pop, peepy show spray will make the coat slik and shiny. If you plan to ride later that day do not spray where sadle gose. Use show sheen on main and tail.

    Great advice here so far. Have you shown in Showmanship classes before? If you have you already know what to do. If not, you might want to pick up a showmanship book - I've found that they give better guidance on how to train for leading and squaring up than most halter books! But for conditioning/fitting for halter, you'll need the halter books.
