I think this is such a great idea for green horses!! Basically just do what you already stated. Walk them around, ride them, warm them up when the other riders are in the arena warming up, tie him to the trailer and let him stand there for a bit. Just so you know he wont freak out, ect. Get him used to the surroundings, the loud noises, like the crowd, the announcing speakers if there are any. Just act like you are in the show with him, but your not actually going to ride in the show.
Hope all goes well!
