If it's just a one-day show, you probably won't need the following, but if it's a multi-day show it wouldn't hurt:

ace and/or banamine
(just in case)

For the Trailer/ Tack Stall
fly masks (to protect their eyes from debris while trailering)
muck fork
water container with water from home in it (you can mix it with the show water, and they'll drink it - - also, you can add peppermints to their water at home and add them at the show )
shipping boots
extra lead lines
bailing twine (to hang buckets)
bleach (if it's a dirty stall - just scrub it down!)
extension cords
sweat scraper

For the Rider:
make up
mirror (!)
brushes for your hair
safety pins!
whip/ spurs (if you use them)
shoe polish
bobby pins
hairspray that holds like glue

For the horse:
Coggins - a definite around here!
cooler/ sheet
hoof black/ hoof white (we show saddlebreds - - white foot = white shoe polish (then let dry) and paint over with clear)
show sheen/ baby oil
vaseline for the face and ears
lots of extra rags
tack - always bring 2 saddlepads in case one gets dirty (if it's white)
general first aid ointment
fly spray

Powder for white socks? Oh no no! spray paint for sure, for black socks and white socks, and pepe for shine! Oh and don't forget the BBQ grill! (we always bring a charcoal grill - yum yum!)
