4H Demonstration....HELP!

I have to do a 4H project demo by Saturday of next week, but I have yet to start on it. My problem is: I don't know what to do it on! I want to do something quick and easy. I thought about doing different bits, but we had a HUGE bit clinic and I think that killed everyone on bits. Haha, I'm pretty sure they don't want to hear the words "Snaffle, Hackamore, Jointed, Smooth...ect," agian!

Anyways, any suggestions? Quick and easy are the key!

How about what to wear when at fair? I did that and it was pretty easy. I also dressed up in my western show stuff and my friend dressed up in her English show stuff.

Or maybe the different kind of horse shoes out there. Like the light weight and sometimes glued on aluminum shoes race horses use. Or the rounded egg shaped shoe that is used to correct. And examples on when to possibly leave your horse barefooted and such.

Or you could probably do it on blankets. When to blanket your horse, the different types of blankets, and even fly sheets haha.

We also just had a "What to Wear" clinic, so that option is out . But, I like the shoes and blanket suggestion. I don't know a whole lot about shoes, so I may not do that one.Ugh, I'm such a picky person

We had like a group tack cleaning once. I liked that.


Hooves (importance, cleaning, trimming, etc.)
Bridle (fitting, cleaning, etc.)
Saddle (fitting, cleaning, etc.)
Grooming (techniques, importance, etc.)
Feeding (when, what, etc.)

Sorry I'm not much help but good luck!
