when my daughter show's we make sure our trailer is away from the dirt roads, show shean tends to make thing's stick and show so we say away from that, i take a few old fashion dippers or baby blacket cut up and rub down before going in to a show ring.....it's takes the dust off

There's this great spray called water glaze which unlike other show sheens it actually repels dust. I don't know if you can get it in the US though? But like Kansas Twister said a rub down with a clean rag/towel just before you go in the ring should do the trick!

dusty horses!
 
I have a black horse, and he's always covered in dust, so when I go to a show I take a yellow duster with me, and wipe him down with it just before my class. The dust sticks straight to the duster, and so he always gleams!

Depending on how hot it is where you live, you could probably put a dress sheet on your horse to keep the dust away, and pull it off right before saddling time. :]

I find that World Champion Pepi spray works well, too.

The day before, bathe the horse. Make sure you do not use an oil based shampoo or conditioner, as this attracts dust. Spray the horse with a coat dressing such as showsheen, thi coats the hair with silicone,making dust rise to the surface. where it can be easily brushed off.

When you are preparing for your class, be sure not to use products such as baby oil, as they attract dust. Your horse should be clean enough that you can use a baby wipe to collect any dust that has rosen to the surface. There are ways to prevent getting the dust on your horse, but, horses will be horses and they will find a way to get dirty/
