We once had a horse at the barn who HATED drinking water from anywhere other then home. Of course, when they get thirsty enough they'll drink anything, but at the time I was eventing and you can't have a dehydrated eventer. What we did a few days before shows was put a tablespoon of dry kool-aid mix in his water bucket. When we got to the show, we'd keep putting the kool-aid mix in for the time he was there. Never bothered him a bit.
Other then that, think of what you're probably not going to need, or things you don't normally use at home.. then pack them. You'll probably be stuck in a situation where you'll need them haha, seems to always be the way!
