    have i got everything??????

    Ok so if you are one of the 3 people in the world that doesnt know, I am going to my first show on possum on the 20th july. Its been years since I went to a show so im worried that I may forget something :roll: so here is my list so far:

    Spare Bridle
    Spare Halter
    Dressage Whip
    Saddle Blanket
    Spare girth

    Spare Jods
    Paddock boots
    Top boots
    Spurs (probably wont need these but I want to have them there just in case)
    Hair Net

    I don't need a jacket or anything is its an all zone pony club show so we have to wear pony club shirts

    Horse Clothing:
    Sweat Rug
    Light Rugs

    Bristle brushes
    Soft brushes
    Face brushes
    Mane & Tail brush
    Hoof pick
    Show Sheen
    Baby Oil
    Hoof Enamel
    Sweat scraper
    Baby wipes
    Hair Spray/Mousse


    Water is available on site so I don't need to take any
    Molasses. I learnt years ago to take molasses cause some horses might not want to drink different water
    Extra Electrolytes. I have them on a complete supplement that provides electrolytes but I've been advised to take some extra because it is a hard day.

    That's all I can think of at the moment. Im sure there is more though :) If there is anything else please let me know

    Well, if it's an all day show, which most of them are, don't forget to take a bucket of water and some feed of course for you and your horse! Also, Take a sponge with you, so you can give the tack an extra bit of a clean before you put it on.

    What comp are you going to??
        06-11-2008, 10:56 AM
    - Bucket for the water (they won't supply those)
    - Hay & haynet
    - Pins for your number
    - Leather cleaner and a damp rag for the last wipe over your boots before you enter the ring
    - snacks and water for yourself
    - fold-out chairs for yourself (those shows are LONG!)

    Best of luck!!

    Green Broke
    Boot polish

    Safety pins/bobby pins

    Amen to folding chairs!

    Lunge line?

    Shipping boots/wraps if you use them

    Any paperwork he might need (do you guys do coggins down there?)

    Your checkbook.... :)

    Misskatie - its J.F. McGill :)

    Upnover - we don't have coggins but we do need to show her EI vaccination certificate and a waybill.since the flu outbreak all horses have to be accompanied by a waybill and their vaccination certs to enter shows or move around. I would have thought if it eventually but thanks for reminding me of the paperwork aspect :)

    I don't think ill need my check book though ;) but the other things I had forgotten to list so I will add them now. Thanks again :)

    This is just me, but I always make sure I have a dig. Cam or a vid. Cam. Because if I don't take one I always regret it. I usually take baby wipes to wipe stuff off
