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 dont 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 dont 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 ive been advised to take some extra because it is a hard day.

Thats 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.

- 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!!

misskatie - its J.F. McGill :)

upnover - we dont 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 dont think ill need my check book though ;) but the other things i had forgotten to list so i will add them now. thanks again :)
