Anything i'm missing?
I have my new horses first show this weekend. Just a small pony club gymkhana, but really want to make him look good. I've already hogged his mane so it will be a good length.
- Trim the hair around his feet/fetlocks
- Trim his whiskers/sticky out ear hair
- Hoof black his feet
- Wash him and condition tail, then showsheen everywhere but saddle
- Baby wipe his afce then i'm going to put a bit of alto-light (make up) on
Can you guys think of anything else I can do to make him look super schmick?
I don't think you need to that much for a gymkhana show. Just a wash and a trim will be just fine.
I know, and normally i'm not big on the presentation thing, trust me, riding mounted games we're always dirty :]
Just because it's his first outing and the first time anyone will see him, I just want to show him off a bit! Proud mumma syndrome, lol, nicest horse i've ever owned conformation/looks wise.
chalk for white socks, plait tail, make sure all your gear is super clean
He has no white, which is a plus!
I'm unsure wether to plait him, as he has a hogged mane. he is an Australian Stock Horse, and they are usually shown with a hogged mane and no plaits in tail/forelock, but this isn't a breed show. Do you think braiding his tail/forelock would look funny with a hogged mane?
Sounds good! Sounds like you're ready; & you're lucky he's not that white hehe that can be a painnnn. :lol: :D Good luck!
just make sure your braid stays in with all of that running ;-)
for gymkhana around here, i just wash/condition/brush out Boo's tail and go -all natural :-)
No advice, just :D good luck and have fun :D
I think i am just going to go all natural, just cleaned/trimmed/burshed to within an inch fo his life, lol.
Which will be a lot fo work, as I took his rug off to wash it and him and his paddock mates pepper and wildey have decided swimming/rolling in the dam is their game of choice! Muddy ponies!
