Sooo I'm going to a four day "A" show soon. I have done plenty of one and two day shows [this is my fifth year] and I went to this show last year on a different horse but only went for two days. So what do I do differently? Obviously pack more food, shavings, etc. but what else? I have one day where I don't show either my second or my third day. I guess I should talk to my trainer about whether I should ride her that day or give her a rest. She's very high energy and would probably be better being worked at least lightly, but idk.
Sooooo yeah. Tips? I have a braider, and I know equipment wise what to pack for "looking pretty" and tack - like I said, 5 years of showing, first on this horse, but what else? Should I lightly bathe her halfway through the show? She'll definitely get hosed down every day, but you know what I meannnnn.
