How to keep horse clean in summer?

OK. Here is my question... :) I need to keep Jemma clean night before the show. I don't think fly sheet will help, because it's mesh (so dirt can go through anyway if she rolls). Is that true or not? If so, what should I get to keep her clean? Stable sheet or something? I really afraid to put anything heavy, because in month or so it'll be HOT even at nights and she'll be sweating then...

Thanks a lot! I'm in US actually. :)

Yes, I plan on putting her in stall. However the problem is she poops around any small area, destroy it all over the place and then lay down in it. Horrible! My paint is very clean in stall and makes nice accurate piles along the walls and sleeps in middle, but the qh is just a disaster. :(

get yourself some sleazy ware. the hoodies and a nylon sheet don't make the horse sweat and they do a really good job keeping them clean AND making the main lay flat. You can even braid or band before putting the hoodie on. Get some cowboy magic green spot remover for any yuckies she may have on in the morning... OR, bathe in the morning..... I know... FUN....
