    How do you prep for a show?

    I'm talking horse, rider and equipment!

    What I do:

    -I give a thorough wash with soap, washing every inch, including mane and tail the night before. Also get the gunk out of his/he genitals.
    -The day off I groom with all the different brushes, pick hoofs, comb feathery tufts above hooves and the wipe eyes and nose.
    -I apply fly spray.
    -I wipe off the gunk from the nose and eyes.
    -I polish hooves.
    -I braid mane if necessary.

    -I take a shower morning of show.
    -Dress up.
    -Do what's necessary with hair.
    -I do the morning routine.

    -I wash the saddle pad used.
    -I use Mink Oil or Passier on my saddle and bridle.
    -I polish the bit with toothpaste.
    -I wash my riding clothes.

    So tell me, what do you do? Is there anything I could add? I am never over-prepared, and I don't mind doing the extra work. This is more to make myself feel accomplished rather than to strut our stuff, although that too!
