Hi, I am going to an A & P show soon. I will be showing in the Standardbred section and in the miniature section and I am just wondering of any of you have any ideas about making my horses look the best?
I have clear polyurathane (varnish) for painting onto clean, sanded hooves, I have my miniature horse clipped (my standardbred has a summer coat on now), I am doing regular oil baths, I have baby oil and vaseline for around the eyes/muzzle/ears/dock, I have practiced my plaiting and it is looking pretty good.
We have practised standing still, working on the bit etc.
Is there anything else I could be doing from tips when I am schooling to getting my horse looking the best? Also, how do I stand my miniature up properly?
Any show day tips?
Thanks a lot.
