Help a sister out. What's in your show kit?

I know there are probably a tonne of threads like this one, but to be perfectly honest after the day I've had I really do not feel like searching to find them.

With that said,

What do you have in your show kit? What things will you not leave without?

Flirt and I have our first ever in hand show in 36 hours and I am just about in full blown panic mode so am positive I am going to forget something without some help.

Grooming: show sheen, rubber bands, wet wipes or damp cloth (for horses face), hoof polish, dandy brush for right before you go into your class. Make sure to show seen the tail (get any dirt from arena out) brush off legs and wipe face (mainly and slobber from bit after warm up)

You: stray hairs tucked away, your boots wiped down before entering class but after warm up. Don't forget a smile!

For a horse with socks and any big star or blaze use baking soda....have your parent or groom apply this while you are ON the horse as to not get any on you!

Hair spray for those braids!
Good luck

I had always used baby powder. Is there an advantage of baking soda...or is it just 6 of one, half dozen of another?

Looks like I missed your show, but I'm always packing the following things:

A clean pair of riding pants...I always manage to get mine dirty.

Hair stuff, bobby pins, elastic bands, hair pieces, etc. I keep a mirror in my tack box and hang it on the trailer door so I can take a last peek before heading to my class.

Fly spray is always in my trailer. Never want to be without that.

Water, water and more water for my horse. I always end up parked a mile from the water source.

Wipes...everything about horses seems to involve getting dirty.

I'm lucky I have a giant tack trunk that wheels into my trailer with me everywhere. The only things I add into it for shows are my braiding kit, some soft finishing brushes, white saddle pads and my bridle numbers. For me I make sure I have plenty of time to do my hair, usually I do it in the mornings. If its a big show I bring 2 of all my whites, and white polos for presentations.
For our stall I always bring my stall mats, Virkon, buckets and a stall guard along with cleaning stuff like a wheelbarrow and fork and broom. I also bring crossties to tie in the alley.

For an in-hand class :)...don't forget the show halter, nicely cleaned, your lead line and something crinkly like a peppermint candy wrapper you can hide in your hand to use to get your horse to put his ears forward when standing. :)

For the brush box/ human "Kabootle"
Electric tape, show sheen, mane comb, hard and soft brush, 2 hoof picks, hoof black, makeup, hair spray, duck tape, mints, phone, cash, horse FAC, towels, saddle stick

For the show
Horse duh, saddle (make sure it is nice and clean), your bridle (use leather conditioner it makes the reigns a lot easier to use), saddle pad, bell boots, wraps, halter, lead, crop

Hay, trunks, mucking equipment, cd player (music relaxes horses), aspirin/tums, FAC, entertainment, chairs, show cloths, ribbon rack, and sodas

Seems like a ton and it is. I have found that all of these greatly help in the show, also never take free food from the world of showing no food is ever free, if it is, something is wrong with it. I've seen people lace grilled cheese with laxatives and hand them out...
