If there are issues with bugs, then bug spray, sunscreen lotion/spray. Hmm, that's all I can think of right now. Did I help at all?
Yes thank you. I didn't think about bug spray because our barn has been pretty good. But that's a good idea.

Mmkay, well my answer is still the same. It shouldn't be any different from the other shows you are used to going to. Just always bring backups.

I don't know if you are willing to do this but I would LOVE to see pictures (not necessarily of you and your horse but of any of the competitors). It would be really cool to see pics of you and your horse competing there but honestly any horse and rider. I know that's not really horse related but I think it would be awesome to see some "live" pictures of the riders there.

I would personally take an extra halter and lead (you never know when you're going to need it).

Horse treats (unless you don't give your horse treats).

Definitely bring medical supplies (unless your trainer does?). If you don't bring them, something bad is bound to happen. You know how horses are.

Good luck and keep us updated! I wish Indy was ready to compete at an event like that.

For my horse:
Saddle
Girth
Pads (schooling and show)
Bridles
Martingales
Boots
No-bow wraps (assuming you'll wrap his legs at night)
Standing wraps
Normal grooming supplies (don't forget the showsheen, etc)
Stuff to bathe your horse (shampoo, sweat scraper, etc)
Hose (most places have places to wash your horse but no hose!)
Seam ripper
Stuff to clean/condition your tack
Liniment/vetrolin if you use it
Hoof polish
Shipping boots
Sheets
Tack trunk
Ear plugs?
Saddle rack?
Bute?

For you:
Schooling clothes
Show clothes
Hang out clothes
Helmet/hairnet
Boot polish
Gloves

You mentioned that you help your trainer remember to bring everything, this is what our barn brings:
Curtains
All things to hang up the curtains (zip ties, staple gun, wood, etc)
Tables/chairs for aisle
Plants/mulch, for aisle
Stall front decor
Wrap holders for front of stall
Bridle hooks for front of stall
Buckets for feed/water
Chains/snaps to hang buckets
Hose (don't forget the nozzle, we forgot our last week and what a pain!)
Wheelbarrow
Manure forks
Feed
Hay
Pliers (for hay, curtains, etc)
Saddle racks for tack room
Bridle hooks for tack room
Cross ties if you get a grooming stall
Rubber mats
COGGINS PAPERS!
USEF membership cards
First aid kit
Chairs to sit in when you're hanging out
$$$$

Like I said in another post, there will be tons of tack venders there! So should you forget anything you can pick up another one. That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Basically, you bring everything you need at home. And everything you take to shows. yeah, it's a lot of stuff...

I'll add to the list if I can think of anything more.

ooh, I knew i'd forget something. Don't know if you'll be bedding your horse's stalls or if you have grooms... but most places you order your shavings there and they bring it in a bunch of bags. Which you have to rip open and lay down before you unload your horse. It's MUCH easier if you have a knife to cut them all open. Those little "leatherman" tools (like a swiss army knife but so much cooler) are incrediblyl helpful and a must for any horse showing person!

I just don't get it - if you compete A Circuit, shouldn't you know all this by now?

Good luck at the comp.
