What have you been doing? Do you know what you will be showing in? Do you consistently take lessons? Also, if you have some picture that would help! My barn was going to go to HITS last year but we didn't ... idk really remember why. :)

I take lessons with my trainer once a week. And she sometimes will give me min lessons. I'll be showing in the Pre-childrens Hunter and Equitation.
I have been concentrating on my weak points.
I'm thinking about what I'll forget to do or get be4 the shows.

You guys look good! Adorable hunter! I am hoping to do the Children stuff with my horse too. We just started the three feet. I am showing this sunday on him for the first time but only in Mini Medal.
It looks like you've shown before - will this be your first time at an away show?

My barn is holding its "real" show in RI! We are all very excited!

Bring all of the stuff that you would to a normal show and the follow (plus more ). Okay, i would prepare the food in little baggies so that you just have to dump them in the bucket. If you are going with a big(erish) barn then you will probably bring bags of differnt foods. I would suggest bringing enough buckets as we always seem to be short one. Also, bring enough double ended snaps because not all shows have special ties in the makeshift stalls! We always forget that! :) Find out ahead of time if they barn has on sight hay and shavings that you can buy (they probably will). As for tack, i always bring extra of everything to be safe. make sure you bring schooling tack and a square pad for when you dont want to dirty your show pad. I have, overtime, created an "emergency" kit that i bring to all shows. It has bandages, aspirin, scissors, chapstick, suntan lotion, rags, baseball hats, stick notes, markers, a sewing kit - a little bit of everything! I keep adding to it too! I would bring an ace bandage for your horse's tai when it braided, and a seam ripper to get braids out.

Thats all that i have now but i know i'll think of more!

Thanx! I didn't think of some of this stuff. I'll pass it along to my trainer.

I love to look for saddle pads and i found this really cute sight - anyways it has a great example of a nice emergency kit. It is nice to look at because you never think of half the things you actually need! Here is the link: http://www.raraequus.com/productcart...&idproduct=187

Sorry to double pst but i thought that i'd add that i have container for everything. I have small containers for my hairnets and earstuffies. My mom bought sheets and they came in these plastic baggie things and they are perfect for wraps, leather cleaner, treats, leather, and rags.
