LOL! My horse show prep and packing list is 8 typed pages long. I also start prep months in advance for show season and have a task list for pre-season prep, 6 weeks out, 2 weeks out, 2 days out, day before, day of and post show items.

All this and my daughter only shows at smaller local shows. I really don't think a three item list can even begin to cut it.

I show at national level, Reeco's preparation started 6 months ago and his first ridden show will not be untill April.

I've already started sorting out and trimming, pulling etc. Washing his tail is a big one for me, the only way to get rid of the yellow stains is to wash it months in advance and then keep washing it!

I show nationally too, on the Jumper circuit! :) and my preparation (getting hotels, buying any new equipment, ect) I usually do 3 months out. But the show we are going to is Feb 6-10 and we just found out the other day. Lol my trainer sent me a packing list and im going to scrub the trailer and bring it in for a check today so that at least I have THAT off my list! Hahha

Jumper, your preparation probably starts earlier than you thinK.

The old saying is "Rosettes are won at home, you only go to shows to pick them up". Your training and schooling is a very very large part of preparing for a show!

I know the training is the ONLY part that truly prepares you hahaha but our jumper ring has been soaking wet for 3 weeks!!!! I know Romeo an I would still be ready even if it was today. But I mean like true "set your sights" preparation.

Rather than tear down a younger member for attempting to start a helpful thread, wouldn't it have been more productive just to add to the list? Now, instead of having a potentially meaningful thread, what we have is a bandwagon of degrading comments.

Farmpony, this is I'm fairly sure a previously banned member who keeps coming back. The styles are identical. I can't remember off the top of my head the original name of the member but when it comes to me i'll let you know.
~*~anebel~*~ and Golden Horse like this.

I thought you would have learned from the last times you caused heated comments like this, but I guess not.

You cannot assume anyone can read your mind on this forum. Why didn't you put "these are broad examples" in your original post? Why didn't you say "please add what you do to prepare for a show" to the list? We cannot read your mind. I thought you were smart enough to know that.

See? Anything can be flipped around. Derogatory comments don't help, nor do they feel good to the receiving end.

The most descriptive you can be in your original post, and the more you can explain things, the less people will get the wrong idea about what you are trying to say or what you are trying to ask.

There is no such thing as "reading between the lines" on an internet forum, because tone and intent is lost without seeing someone's facial expressions and body language.

So don't get angry at US because you didn't explain yourself well enough.

Goodness - I think I need to find a list to mooch off from someone if some start this early!

'Course I'm doing schooling shows, but still yikes! It's been several years since I've made it to any "real" shows.
