A truck and a trailer to put the horse in, a parent to drive you to the show, someone to bake you brownies, and show fees!

Seriously though... I would go and watch a local level show to get the feel of it before going to one...

Also depends on the type of show. Hick from the sticks is fine for schooling shows, gaming clubs and some 4-H shows but anything else and you will need actual show tack, show attire, membership fees, etc.

By show tack I mean tack that is permitted by the rules. Tom Thumbs, FatBaby Boots and black breeches are great for at home but will get you DQ in most recognized shows.
